Different strokes for different folks ... many people find museums fun ... malls not so much...

In any event you can find listings of malls, nightlife, etc on the Tourism Winnipeg website. Also festivals and events, all of which can be fun:

https://www.tourismwinnipeg.com/

clubzone.com/winnipeg/places/nightclubs/

For restaurants & pubs, you check the reviews under the restaurant tab at top of this page.

What's your nightly hotel budget... in CAD$$?

Polo Park or St Vital for a good mall. But malls don't really rank high on my idea of fun.

Guided walking food tour or pub/ale tour in the Exchange district might be something you would enjoy. https:/…

How about a microbrewery or crown royal tour? https://www.winnipegtastingtours.ca/

Assissiboine park zoo?

Boat tour at The Forks?

The melting pot - fondue restaurant

Carnivale - restaurant with all you can eat Brazilian meats and side dishes

For hotels fairmont if your budget is decent, or Humphrey inn and suites if your budget is lower. Walking distance to the Forks, bars, restaurants.

Ashely D, it would be helpful to know where you are coming from. Please include your location in your TA profile like the rest of us do. Then we know if you are coming from elsewhere in Canada, or from another country. It helps us give you better advice.

You didn't say when in summer. Check the tourism links others left above.

One big summer event is Folklorama https://www.folklorama.ca/ . The largest and longest-running multicultural festival of its kind in the world (as determined in 2010 by CIOFF, the International Council of Organizations of Folklore Festivals and Folk Arts). Nice thing is you can buy VIP packs and get a bus ride to 3 pavilions a night and bypass the lineups.

With your budget, you can stay at Inn at The Forks and be in the middle of a lot of interesting things to see, places to eat, etc.
