A Daytripper's Guide to Manitoba
Exploring Canada's Undiscovered ProvinceBook - 2007-
"Sandwiched between North Dakota and Nunavut, Manitoba has never been the busiest chunk of tourism real estate in North America. To independent travellers, this is a good thing: Canada's undiscovered province offers uncrowded beaches, innumerable lakes and unlikely cultural attractions, especially in the gritty/cool capital, Winnipeg. Daytrippers Guide to Manitoba is the only comprehensive travel handbook to the province and an indispensable tool for visitors from abroad, Canadians passing through and Manitobans who want to get to know their own backyard. The new edition of the best-selling Canadian guidebook has expanded coverage of Winnipegs cultural attractions, more Churchill ecotourism options and a brand-new chapter on the Lake Of The Woods region of northwestern Ontario. Get the straight goods on cities, towns and natural attractions in every corner of the province, compiled by one of Manitobas most tenacious independent travellers, Winnipeg Free Press columnist Bartley Kives. Plunder a small-town gift shop. Eyeball turn-of-the-last-century architecture. Commune with nature in wild areas that still feel wild. And forget what you think you know about the Canadian prairies the only thing flat about Manitoba is the Trans-Canada Highway."
