Between long sunny days, outdoor adventures, exciting festivals, al fresco dining and more, summer is the season of fun and relaxation. There’s no doubt this summer is different from the norm, but even with social distancing, there are tons of ways to take advantage of the summer months when you’re living at 390 On the River.
390 On the River suites feature spacious balconies, a rare gem you aren’t likely to find in most condo units — and that’s a real bonus in the summer months. Whether you love to fire up the grill, zen out in your own little balcony garden, or lounge outdoors in the evening, you’ll be able to create your own little summer oasis.
When you own a house, summer maintenance can be a chore — there always seems to be grass to cut, seed and feed, gardens to plant, water and weed, and AC maintenance to take care of. Condo living, in comparison, is a breeze. Maintenance is taken care of by management, so all you have to worry about is your own little balcony garden — if you want one.
One of the other big benefits of condo living is the lock-and-leave lifestyle. You can head to your cottage or cabin for an extended stay or take the kids camping for a couple of weeks without any worries about the lawn getting overgrown, potential break-ins or your car being left to the elements on the street or in your driveway. Just pack up and head out on your adventure!
Getting outdoors for a simple walk feels rather liberating after months of social distancing and quarantine, and one of the best things about 390 On the River is its private path access to the Assiniboine River Walk. Whether you’re a morning power-walker or prefer an evening stroll, the River Walk offers a bit of serenity in the heart of the city, and it also connects you to 310,000 square metres of riverside green space.
While the rules around gatherings will shift as the coronavirus situation evolves, when gatherings with a few friends or family are allowed, 390 On the River’s stunning 2,364-square-foot terrace overlooking the Assiniboine River offers lots of space for easy get-togethers. With shade trees, outdoor tables and seating, and barbeques, it has everything you need for daytime and evening entertaining.
Foodies will love the range of restaurants in the neighbourhood, especially come summertime, as patios open to make the most of midday sunshine and long, warm evenings. Plus, at 390 On the River, you’re just a five-minute walk from Broadway’s lunchtime food truck scene, which we hope to see taking to the streets soon.
Okay, so this is a next-summer adventure, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about Winnipeg’s vibrant summer festival lineup. The city centre normally hosts lots of large events every year — something to look forward to for summers to come. From the long-running Jazz Festival and the new Current Festival (an immersive experience blending food, drink, art and music) to Fringe for theatre lovers and the ManyFest street festival, there’s something for everyone. While some of these events have been postponed this year, others have moved online so even those far from the downtown core can participate for once.
