Winnipeg doesn't get nearly as much respect as it deserves. While the winters here really are some of the coldest in Canada, this city features some of the country's best museums, music, and architecture. Winnipegers are fiercely proud of their hometown, which played an important role in the westward expansion of Canada and which today enjoys a vibrant, indie culture scene. Many of the country's best musicians come from Winnipeg and the city hosts one of the best fringe festivals and one of the best ballet companies on the planet. At once sophisticated, quirky, and edgy, Winnipeg is a unique and unforgettable experience.

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.
