Awesome photos!

Unlike Edmonton and Calgary, Winnipeg preserves many heritage buildings.

Awesome photo thread, Flar! I've been to Winnipeg many, many times, and you've captured the downtown area beautifully. Majorly underrated city, if you ask me.

Adelaide's a grand old city, and an apt comparison. Winnipeg's finally showing significant growth again so maybe they can catch up to Adelaide in population.

Really? I always thought Winnipeg has the same climate as Edmonton and Regina since all three cities are in the prairie that is usually hot and dry in the summer.

Winnipeg is a great city to explore, lots of history. The climate is mostly dry. They get some humidity in the summer, but it's not muggy like the mid to south eastern parts of North America.

Proof that there is much to urban Canada between Vancouver and Toronto!

I'm surprised about the amount of heritage buildings left.
