The Historic Exchange district if Winnipeg s a vibrant and cosmopolitan neighbourhood brimming with galleries, cafes and boutique shops alongside beautiful heritage buildings. This downtown core of the city is easily walkable and a range of walking tours are available which explore either the history or the food of the area – these can be booked quite easily online.
The meeting point of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers is now a National Historic Site and nearby railway buildings shave been converted to house shops, a market and several cafes. It is a little touristy but it a great place to sample some interesting foods and enjoy a stroll along the river walk. Next door is the Canadian Museum for Human Rights which explores this subject in both a national and international context; this is an interesting and thought-provoking attraction.
