Things To Do In Winnipeg

 

Winnipeg is one of Canada’s hidden gems.  A mid-sized city located in the center of the country, Winnipeg offers up a uniquely diverse blend of warm and cold weather activities to entertain the whole family all year long.  

 

Here is a list of some of Winnipeg’s most famous attractions. 

The Forks 

The Forks is one of Winnipeg’s most iconic attractions located where the city’s two rivers (Red and Assiniboine) meet right in the city center.

 

Here you will find restored buildings housing a mixture of restaurants, shops, and museums.  

 

You can stroll for hours around the grounds, along the famous river walk (or skate on in the winter), and climb up the lookout tower for a Birdseye view of the city.
