Hi, I was just wondering if anybody can recommend some caches downtown Winnipeg. I will be staying at the Fort Garry for a week for meetings next week and I am not sure if I will be able to go to far for some caches, any suggestions as to which ones would be the closest to the Hotel.



Thanks

Upper Fort Garry Gate Cache (GCMNJB) is very close to your hotel and an interesting historic site. The Forks (GCM256) is a must for any visitor to Winnipeg and a fun hide. On the Waterfront (GCNFAB) is a fun multi you can do on a walk – best done during the day if you want to avoid itinerants. Tardis (GCP8TM) is a multi that finishes some distance away, but even doing the first stage will put a smile on your face! First Post (GC6C18) and Patriot Game (Winter-friendly) (GCMNW4) will give you a walking tour of the beautiful and historic grounds around the Manitoba legislature building.

A little beyond walking distance (6-8 km round trip) is Barking up the right tree (GCT4T7), a clever hide in an historic neighborhood. Message in a Bottle Opener (GCTFWP) is a fun new multi with a good size final stage.

There’s also some micro’s in historic locations close by, but they may present a challenge to find (especially in the winter) No.1 Northern (GCPZDF), Fountain Promenade (GCMMY5) and Eye of the Man (Cathedral Illuminations) (GCMMYB). This last one is best seen at night – and it doesn’t matter if you don’t find the cache!

Hope you enjoy your trip to Winnipeg!

Bring your skates! You could likely make it there and back in 20 mins!  The Assiniboine River has a groomed skating path that ends about 150 metres from the cache.  If you're quick with your laces, it would be a fun trip!

Thanks. I'm not sure if I will be able to do them all but I will do as many as time permits. I really appreciate the help.
