being at old market square makes you feel as if you have travelled back in time. original buildings from the 19th century in the middle of an urban city. you almost feel the buildings wanting to tell you about their history

Old Market Square is the starting point of the Exchange District. Fun to simply walk around and take in all the historic buildings or make some stops at all the great shops, theaters, food vendors and galleries. There isn't much street parking, but plenty of parking lots around the area (for a fee.) Though if you are staying in the... More

Best place to start your tour of the Exchange District neighbourhood. Concerts at the cube in the summer are cool, too. Close to Bronuts and lots of good restaurants!

Look up while you walk along the streets and see the 1880-1900 era building and their fantastic architectural detail. You'll find a mix of great restaurants, unique shops, artists' studios as well as manufacturers that have been there for decades. When you're looking up, check out the old painted signage still to be seen on the sides of the old... More

The whole area is a treasure trove of late 19th century architecture. Many movies shot here (eg. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) because of the well preserved buildings. Keep your eyes on the surrounding buidings, they don't make them like that anymore.

The revitalisation of Winnipeg's Exchange District is anchored by Old Market Square. The home to cool shops, interesting organisations, great restaurants and pubs and at its core and very fine, if peculiar, stage that is... More

It's Winnipeg, so there's not much to do or see. I guess this is one of the more interesting and nature appealing aspects.
