The Hub salutes Winnipeg


Top 20 best places in the world to visit for 2016


O


h dear! Te secret is out! National Geographic Traveler edition has just put Winnipeg on its top 20 list of Best Places in the World to visit for 2016. Tis is big news for what the magazine (more like a force of nature


than a magazine) calls the “Little Spark on the Prairie”! Winnipeg’s mention even made the dailies on the tiny Channel island of Jersey, just off the coast of France but liege to Britain. Winnipeg is up there with Bermuda, the Blue Danube River, New York City and South Georgian Island, to mention a few of the world’s hot spots. It is a singular honour and is predicated not only on the new Canadian Museum of Hu- man Rights but on some of our very every day, take-it-for-granted charms: the Exchange district, Te Forks, skating on the frozen rivers and the Manitoba Mu- seum. It lauds the restaurants, the galleries, and what it calls the “French Quarter”, including the Festival du Voyageur. It may be no coincidence that the Manitoba Museum is hosting the National Geographic touring exhibit, “Earth Explorers” next April. Te earth’s Polar regions, oceans, rainforests, mountains and caves, and the African savannah are among the ecosystems to be virtually explored in the exhibit. Martina Hutchinson from the Museum is the only name mentioned in the article. National Geographic magazine has a circulation of 6.8 million. No amount of


marketing dollars could buy this kind of positive publicity for our town. Congratulations to Tourism Winnipeg and all the others who made this happen. And congratulations Winnipeg! We are so proud of our town.
