Winnipeg surprises. Rising above the prairie, it's a metropolis where you least expect it. Cultured, confident and captivating, it's more than just a pit-stop on the Trans-Canada haul, it's a destination in its own right. Wander its historic neighborhoods and lap up a vibe that enjoys being the butt of a Simpsons joke ('That's it! Back to Winnipeg!'), inspired Guy Maddin's haunting and hallucinatory 2007 film My Winnipeg and revels in one of the world's best fringe theater festivals.
