Spending Time at The Forks
The Forks, located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, has been a meeting place for over 6,000 years. Indigenous peoples traded at The Forks, followed by European fur traders, Scottish settlers, railway pioneers and tens of thousands of immigrants.
If you’re in Winnipeg you should add a “stop at the Forks” to your to do list. You can start out with the tour around the campus. There is so much interesting history.
We went on a tour with a guide who really knew her stuff. She was great at answering all our questions.
Come experience an exceptional array of dining options, fantastic local makers and retailers, a constantly changing slate of entertainment and events, and many unique attractions that encompass the site’s natural, historic and built features.
Then my favorite part is the Market. It’s not like a mall food court, these are amazing restaurants that each have a spot.
We even did a wine tasting! They paired some wines with the amazing food from The Common.
I loved my dinner from the KYU Grill. I ordered the Korean style beef tips and it was delicious!
There’s also shopping and a huge outdoor area. I’ve been told that when the river freezes there’s ice skating and they even do a pop up restaurant on the lake! I’m definitely going to have to check it out in the winter.
