If you are a visual person, login to Instagram and search #finditdowntown. This might just be the best way to see how vibrant, diverse and artistic Winnipeg’s core is.
You’ll be met with stunning shots of Winnipeg’s famed architecture, which is a mix of turn of the 19th century, and early 20th century masonry (or, as we like to say, stone skyscrapers) and modern glass buildings. You’ll also be introduced to downtown’s culinary scene, where gourmet sandwiches, food trucks, and handcrafted cocktails are all the rage these days.
Above all, you’ll see the people that make this place so great, like the singer/songwriters on stage at downtown’s many live music venues, the tour guides who can introduce you to landmarks like the much-photographed oculus at the VIA Rail Station, the chefs and shop keepers of the trendy boutiques and restaurants, the vendors at The Forks Market, and our famed Golden Boy, who looks out from his perch on top of the Manitoba Legislative Building.
