We always visit the Forks when we visit Winnipeg. Unfortunately man of the shops are being converted to food areas so there was less to see. Still a must place to visit. Hopefully construction will be completed soon.

Really enjoyed my visit to the Forks. I really loved the fact that the shops were genuine hand made items. Only complaint is that it took almost half an hour for a taxi to show up.
