Opened in 1913, the Fort Garry Hotel is an icon of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Built by the now defunct Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, the Fort Garry is one of Canada's chateau-style grand railway hotels that were built in the early 20th century to entice tourists to travel their transcontinental routes. The Fort Garry Hotel remains one of Winnipeg's most prestigious hotels to this day.

Forever Bicycles was an artwork installation set against the backdrop of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This sculpture by Ai WeiWei called its location in The Forks home for just over 3 years, but moved on from Winnipeg in 2022.

The Superwheel (the largest travelling ferris wheel in the world) was back on the midway at the Calgary Stampede this year, but did you know they offer a VIP experience?
We didn't either.
The Superwheel has a single VIP capsule, and with upgraded seats and air conditioning, what you're really paying for is that it's the only capsule with a glass bottom. The perspective was cool, the air conditioning was appreciated, but the ride didn't last anywhere near long enough to justify the $25 per person ticket. Who am I kidding though, I'm easily swayed by a view.
8/10 would go again lol.
