Lots of restaurants, cafes and bars of all types and all pretty good year round. Free outdoor summertime entertainment on the weekends. Indoor concerts at the Burten Cummings theatre lead into a late night meal or drink. It's great.

I've been to the cube for the 2016 jazz festival and now for the Tragically Hip concert that was broadcast from Kingston ON live for all the fans to see. Such a great crowd each time. Although watching the Hip was very emotional for all of us fans knowing that Gord Downie is not doing so well. He and the... More

Old Market Square is fast becoming the "in" place in Winnipeg. Great restaurants, shops, Cinemateque, close to the Concert Hall, and heritage buildings.

The whole of the Exchange district is worth a visit. Great historical buildings (by Canadian standards!), loads of super places to eat and drink, and pick the right time and get free entertainment in the square. How can you knock anywhere with a poutine van?

being at old market square makes you feel as if you have travelled back in time. original buildings from the 19th century in the middle of an urban city. you almost feel the buildings wanting to tell you about their history

Old Market Square is the starting point of the Exchange District. Fun to simply walk around and take in all the historic buildings or make some stops at all the great shops, theaters, food vendors and galleries. There isn't much street parking, but plenty of parking lots around the area (for a fee.) Though if you are staying in the... More
