Winnipeg is the capital of the Canadian province of Manitoba. Its heart is The Forks, a historic site at the intersection of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, with warehouses converted to shops and restaurants, plus ample green space dedicated to festivals, concerts and exhibits. Nearby, the Exchange District is known for its well-preserved, early 20th-century architecture and numerous art galleries.
Saturated in 6,000 years of history, the meeting of the Red and Assiniboine rivers has always been a gathering place for peoples. Across 54 beautiful acres you’ll find a bustling central market, exceptional dining and accommodations, vast treelined paths overlooking all the bends in the riverbank, a world-class skate park, a children’s play area and water park, and all the best things a Winnipeg winter has to offer, like skate rentals and access to one of the world’s longest skating rinks. It also bridges, via the sexy Esplanade Riel, the très-European St. Boniface — with its restaurants, cafés, artistic heir and francophone flavor — and the downtown core.
Osborne named Canada's greatest neighborhood.
The Village permeates an artsy vibe and features some of the city’s best live music dive bars and watering holes, along with more restaurants than one can imagine. All along the main strip, you’ll find swish and bohemian shopping, jewelers, a record store with a sweet collection of vinyl, yoga studios, and the Gas Station Arts Centre, a gem of a theatre that is known for comedy.
