Manitoba’s Interlake region is my home away from home. Born and raised in Winnipeg with family in the Interlake that we visited often enough to give the travel to and from a comforting sense of home. As a kid, I rarely paid attention to most of the sites as they passed me by, but as…
I know what you’re thinking. When you think of bananas you always think of Melita Manitoba. Obviously, right? Or is it just me?
Central Manitoba offers events throughout the year that will appeal to all ages. Fairs and festivals in the spring and summer will entertain and delight while fall dinners are a tasty bite of the prairies.

Selkirk Manitoba is the home of Chuck the Channel Cat, a large catfish statue that hangs out at the local Smitty’s. Selkirk is roughly 20km (12 miles) north of Winnipeg along Highway 9.
