Lockport Manitoba is roughly 30km North of Winnipeg. For me it is so close to home it practically is home. A leisurely ride down River Road then back down Henderson Highway is how I start and end every riding season.
I know what you’re thinking, St. Norbert is not a small Manitoba town with a cool statue to check out. And you are right. It has no town statue but it does have 2 historic provincial parks minutes from each other.
Grand Beach is, arguably, one of the top Manitoba destinations and only a short 1-hour ride northeast of Winnipeg, just off Highway 59. This Lake Winnipeg beach is an award-winning travel destination ranked as world-class. A prestigious rank that it has certainly earned.
Roughly 100 km (65 miles) north west of Winnipeg lies the town of Lundar Manitoba. Easily recognized by the giant Canada Goose statue next to the Chicken Chef (which is also kind of a landmark in a weird way).
Mental health issues affect everyone everywhere and in every walk of life. You may not personally suffer from any type of mental health issue but I guarantee you that you know someone who does. Even if you don’t know about it. With all the tragic global events of 2020, it is more important now than ever to do a mental health check.
McBeth House was continuously inhabited by members of the family until 1984 (long, long time ownership) before the land and house were donated to the city of Winnipeg. It has been operating as a seniors resource centre ever since and is available to be booked for gatherings and events. A plaque at the front drive was placed on a monument built from the stone used in the original log cabin building and was unveiled in September 1987 to highlight the history of the McBeth House.
The small town of Manitou Manitoba can be found in the Pembina Valley nestled along Highway #3 between Morden and La Rivière. If you are visiting any one of those places you should also pay a visit to Manitou Manitoba.
2020 has been an unusual year so far, however, one thing that has remained consistent is the love for riding motorcycles. Riding is an excellent way to relieve stress, focus on just your surroundings, and a perfect way to get out and explore. Manitoba by Motorcycle has been promoting motorcycle tourism since 2016 with a special focus on local tourism.
The Whiteshell is a large provincial park on the eastern edge of Manitoba with a large variety of lakes, campgrounds, and towns to enjoy. Cottage country is the best way to describe it. The Whiteshell is a popular place to ride a motorcycle too, with lots of relatively curvy roads that make it a rarity in Manitoba.
Glenboro is a small southern Manitoba town with a very unusual celebrity named Sara. Towering roughly 20 feet above all, standing watch just off the side of Highway #2 is Sara the Camel.
