Take in this very multicultural city. Winnipeg (A.A. Milne, named Winnie the Pooh here) offers a fasinating history with the best choice of resturantes than most other major cities. Canada's fourth largest city about half of Manitoba's population live in this city.
Winnipeg is the geographical center of Canada thus the gateway to the north, east, west, and south. It's a major stopover point for travelers crossing Canada. Excellent connections for air/rail and road travel. Just a two-hour drive from the North Dakota border, it's not the easiest city to drive around. Major highways into the city, tend to change names once within city limits. lots of divertions/road works in the summer months due to exstream climate dammage to the city streets. Winnipeg's Portage Ave runs east/west, part of the Trans Canada Highway, while Main St runs north/south. Most downtown side streets are one-way, alternating in direction as a rule. Skywalks across Portage Ave, connect many of the major department stores in the downtown area. locals call the Portage and Main Corner of this city; "the windiest in North America". Summers very hot and winters very cold.
