What’s there to see in Winnipeg?
Winnipeg, named after the nearby Lake Winnipeg, is the capital of Manitoba province. Around the globe, it’s known for being the home of the Winnipeg Jets NHL team, but it has much more to offer than sports!
Shoppers will find plenty to please them at The Forks, with boutique shops, restaurants, and museums all housed within Winnipeg’s historic buildings. The center of this complex is The Forks Market, where produce vendors set up stalls and food vendors fill the space with mouthwatering aromas. You can also stroll along the Riverwalk, a scenic trail that runs along the riverfront and brings you to the landmark Legislative Building. Another beautiful place for a stroll is at Fort Whyte Alive, where there are five lakes, lush greens, and boardwalks – all spread out over seven kilometers of trails.
Winnipeg is rich in cultural sites, such as the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which reflects national and international human rights. The architecture of the building is impressive in its own right! Or head to the Manitoba Museum, which features an array of permanent galleries that highlight the best of history and science in Winnipeg. Art aficionados will appreciate the Winnipeg Art Gallery, housed in a modern building shaped to resemble the bow of a ship. The collections display many masterpieces from Canadian, American, European, and Inuit artists.
