We are planning a roadtrip from Minneapolis to Winnipeg this weekend and we're still deciding on what to check out there during our short stay. What are some recommendations for attractions, parks, inexpensive but cool bars and restaurants, etc. Also, what are the best cheap hotels close to downtown, I'm talking $50-80 range. So far the only place I definitely know we'll be checking out is The Forks park area.

Assiniboine Park, The Forks, Osborne Village, Corydon Avenue, or check out http://www.destinationwinnipeg.ca/up...s/DES_VG09.pdf

You don't want to stay in "cheap" hotels in downtown Winnipeg.......I assure you. Stay in the burbs and cab it is the safest method.

There are alot of hotels in the downtown area, why wouldn't we want to stay there? Besides parking I don't see why I would have anything to be concerned about there. Taking a cab from the outskirts sounds costly and unecessary. Is there a reason to be concerned about safety in downtown Winnipeg? Being a resident of South Minneapolis I feel humored by this response.
