The Forks: Winnipeg's Meeting Place
For more than six millennia, The Forks has been a meeting place, first for the early aboriginal peoples, then itinerant European traders, various settlers, railway and riverboat workers, and now more than four million visitors each year. Located downtown at the intersection of the Assiniboine River and Red River, The Forks offers up seventy-five shops featuring fine wines and flowers, handmade jewelry, aboriginal art, apparel, toys, and much more. Dining options run the gamut from the posh dishes and stunning patio views at Sydney’s at the Forks to the quirky confections of the Mini Donuts Factory. Kids will enjoy the Children’s Museum, and the whole family can catch a fun show at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People. Best of all, after a busy day of shopping, dining, and entertainment, you’re just a short walk away from our hotel.
