Reviews of Winnipeg

For being such a small town, Winnipeg has a surprisingly impressive arts and culture scene. Some highlights include the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and 'Folklorama' that is a set of performance venues throughout the city and blends all the wonderful cultures it takes place in the summer. Unfortunately, when it's not below zero, windy and covered in snow and ice - you're likely to be dodging the mosquitoes.


Lets face it, Winnipeg is known for it's super cold temperatures in the winter and the mosquitoes in the summer. If you look past those things though, Winnipeg is a city with a small town vibe. There are some AMAZING restaurants (Nuburger, Segovia, Boon, and Fude to name a few) and a great cultural scene. If you want to experience the best of the Winnipeg community, Fringe Festival, Folklorama, and Folk Fest are amazing places to do it.

Visited when I was very young. I remember it being pretty cold there. We did go catfish fishing near by and caught some amazing fish
