From nightlife, to festivals, to museums, to shopping, Winnipeg has so much to offer that sometimes we forget how great it can be to venture outside city limits and enjoy the bounty of Manitoba’s beautiful countryside. Now that summer is winding to a close and the frosts of fall are just around the corner, we recommend taking a relaxing, scenic drive out to one of the many area farms where you can spend the day picking berries and getting back in touch with the earth. One of our favorite places to pick is Boonstra Farms, located about forty minutes north of The Fort Garry Hotel. At Boonstra you’ll find some of the plumpest, most succulent strawberries and raspberries available anywhere. This family-owned and operated farm also offers other fun activities for kids, including a playground, a petting zoo, and wagon rides. Then, at the end of a long, fun-filled day, head back to the city to enjoy the fruits of your labors in the world-class comfort of The Fort Garry Hotel.
