The Forks is a really great place to go with friends or family and is one of the largest attractions in Winnipeg. During the summer The Forks is bustling with people there to shop, eat, and listen to the performing buskers, and during the winter people go to The Forks to skate and play hockey on the river, go tobogganing, and see the ice sculptures. It's also an exciting place to go to on Canada Day when they hold different activities and have fireworks in the evening.
When my mother and I went yesterday morning we decided to take a look around to see some of the new things at The Forks, mainly the Canadian Museum For Human Rights in the picture below. The Museum is still currently under construction and a lot has been said about it's amazing architecture. All the other photos below are just cool things that we love about The Forks or new attractions that we've never seen before.
Inside the main building or "the market" are a bunch of snack and food shops. Two of my favourite are Caramel Crepe and the Mini Donut place. We decided to buy a dozen mini donuts since they could be shared. I thought it was so awesome that they made the donuts fresh for us because they're best when they're warm AND we got to watch the machine make the donuts!
If you're looking for fun places to go to with your family or for a date but can't think of anything, try visiting The Forks. Even though it's winter, they still have a lot going on and have a lot of great places to eat. Seriously, I barely scratched the surface on all the cool places to find food, plus I didn't even talk about the restaurants inside and surrounding the Forks.
