Pearl Jam 2011 Canadian Tour Guide

May 28, 2011

Pearl Jam will be touring Canada again this September, exactly six years after the last journey that brought on so many memories and good times. That trip was where it all started. That was when we took the Touring Van across the country and didn’t look back. That journey brought on adventures that fill up the book. And that was the beginning of This All Encompassing Trip.

This time, however, Pearl Jam will take on Canada in the opposite direction and This All Encompassing Trip will be your complete guide to each city. Every week there will be a new article posted on here written about a different city on the tour, featuring places to see, restaurants to eat at and things to do. Hopefully you’ll find some time amongst all the driving to explore and discover the great country of Canada.

    as a local in Winnipeg, here are my suggestions for tourists to stop by:

    VJ’s diner. Best burgers in town. As voted by the public.

    Corydon Avenue. Our Little Italy. Very hopping destination for locals and tourists alike for good food and drink. Many restaurants and bars all within walking distance of each other.

    The Forks. Historical site where Aboriginals met more than 6,000 years ago, and then the European fur trade. Fully developed commercially, landscaped, etc, it’s a must go destination to relax. Not to mention a luxury hotel and spa right in the heart of it.

    Assiniboine Park. Awesome, and huge park at the West side of the city (all the way down Corydon, so hit the park and then Little Italy for drinks after). Just developed for this year is the Nature Playground, which is billed as a life-size Alice In Wonderland type park for kids of all ages. Also on site is the Assiniboine Park Zoo.
