We will begin our tour outside the “Cube,” one of the most modern additions to this typically classical city. This "Cube" opens up to one of the best music venues in town and your introduction to Winnipeg's entertainment scene.
Leaving the neighbourhood’s modern atmosphere, we are warped into the past to the city’s industrialized past. Here railroad barons, real estate tycoons and newspaper empires compete for supremacy in the cutthroat world that was Winnipeg.

We will begin with some of the best-preserved facades at Red River College.

From here, we will see the gates to the cities, China Town, built in the 1980s. This is but one of many symbols of the city’s multicultural heritage and current diverse population.

Next, we move onto Princess Street, once the location of the city’s most affluent businesses, including the largest car dealership in Western Canada housing an enormous inventory of 142 cars!

The tour then continues to Main Street. We admire the Neo-Classical architecture of the famous Bank of Montreal building with its surrounding structures giving Winnipeg its nicknamed “Chicago of the North.”

Lastly, we explore the heart of Winnipeg’s theatre district. Passing small playhouses, local breweries and distilleries, ending at arguably the city’s most beautiful abandoned building, the Pantages Theatre.

I moved to Winnipeg from Toronto because I love this city. The old buildings in the Exchange, local flavours from the people to food and the prairie spirit you find here.

For the last 7 years, I have worked with a prestigious tour company in the USA. Before that, I was a blogger for multiple travel-based blogs in Toronto. My life has been devoted to showing people the world. Now it is time to show them my new home.

Since arriving in town, I have scoured every bookstore, visited all the museums, taken tours and explored the city. Nothing is more rewarding than falling in love with a place and showing others how amazing it is!
