“Little Spark on the Prairie” spreads like wildfire: Winnipeg named on National Geographic’s Best Trips 2016

National Geographic has included Winnipeg on its list of Best Trips 2016 and everybody is talking about it!

Local news media picked up the story this morning with commentary expressing pride (for our unpretentious home sweet home being the only Canadian city named on the list) to utter disbelief.

Whether you agree with it or not, the designation is nevertheless hugely encouraging to those incredible Winnipeggers who are investing their time and energy to provide the types of things that made this “little spark” worth mentioning – including transit, smart growth in the urban Exchange District, great food and community events.  Keep it up!

This isn’t the first time we’ve caught National Geographic’s eye. Winnipeg was named as one of Canada’s 50 Places of a Lifetime in 2013.
