south-west of Morden. The playgrounds, picnic and campsites make this a perfect place for family fun. The weather put a wet blanket on our next stop... it was too muddy and mucky outside for the dogs of Dogtown to come out and play! It will remain on our list of things to do, perhaps when we're not so busy digging up fossils. We also added Manitoba's only drive-in-movie-theatre to that list. Bring a blanket and your sweetie, or bring the van of kids to the Stardust Drive In Theatre; they have a variety of movie choices throughout the summer to please just about everyone!
Morden's Airport gets visitors flying in from all over the world. Mountain City Aviation (located there) can also teach you how to fly! Or, they offer special cloud-high tours of the Pembina Valley, or take an airplane ride to Steinbach to enjoy supper, and be back in time to get the kids to bed early!
Another fantastic attraction is Morden Colert Beach! Which boasts hiking trails, a sand engulfed lake, and Lake Minnewasta Campground, where you can pick what CFDC creatures you'd like to camp the night with, like Mosasaur Park, Turtle Park, Plesiosaur Park, and more!
Gaslight Sales staff was very welcoming to us, showing off their vintage artifacts decorating their building, their historical pictures of ol' Morden, and of course-- all their offical Harley-Davidson motorcycles and merchandise! Our final stop of the day was at Pembina Threshermen's Museum, found between Winkler and Morden. Sign up for a tour or explore the many farmer and pioneer artifacts and homes they have in their museum.
Thank-you to the owners and workers at all these fine destinations for taking the time out of your busy day to tell us what you do! It was so amazing talking about the worldly tourists Morden gets in every year, and the dedication that not only do these businesses have to Morden and the Pembina Valley, but also the community's support that has helped these "touristy" destinations thrive and grow!
