Places to go

Goulet House Musée de Saint-Pierre-Jolys

The vernacular Goulet House is a fine example of early French domestic architecture in Manitoba. Its Red River frame construction is masterfully exhibited in its hand-cut log walls, while its vertical board-and-batten siding and gambrel roof are typical of early Francophone structures. The family home, built by Moise Goulet, a freighter who transported goods by Red River ox cart from the United States to Canada, was originally situated alongside trading routes near the Rat River and doubled as a resting place for fellow freighters. In 1985 it was moved to its current location, where it is now part of the St-Pierre-Jolys Museum, and restored.

Grand Beach Provincial Park

Resting along the eastern shore of Lake Winnipeg, Canada's sixth largest fresh water lake and next to the historic La Vérendrye Trail, are powdery white sand beaches and grass-topped dunes that make this one of the top beaches in North America. The dunes reach as high as 8 m/30 ft. A lagoon supports many species of birds.

An excellent place to swim, wind surf or hike, three excellent self-guiding walks: Spirit Rock Trail, Wild Wings Trail and the Ancient Beach Trail. The Park also features a campground, outdoor amphitheatre, picnic shelters, a restaurant, concession services and wheelchair access to the beach.
