Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

So yes here it is. The last place on my list. And in almost no way is this place exceptional. I would have to say to most people they would find Winnipeg, quite unexceptional. However, it is my hometown, and holds a special place in my heart. One of the best ways to describe how Winnipegers feel about Winnipeg is they love to hate on it. But at the same time, if you hate on it, you better watch out, because we will defend this city to our death (ok maybe not that far but you get the idea). Listening to this song really captures how Winnipegers feel about their city. Anyways, enough hate, I now have to convince you how I see this place as exceptional. Well three words come to mind instantly GO JET GO, yes we just got an NHL team back and the city is more passionate than ever. Also, the Canadian Museum of Human Rights (last photo) is under construction and is going to look wonderful once it’s complete. The city is also home to many wonderful and different churches. (With Knox United and the Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedrals taking the cake as the most aesthetically pleasing in my opinion.) Another interesting place in Winnipeg is the Exchange District. The Exchange District has some of the best preserved buildings from the early 1900’s in North America and is often used for filming older movies like Capote and The Assassination of Jessie James. The Manitoba Legislative Building is also beautiful and is topped off with the cities’ own Golden Boy Statue designed in France. I could go on and on about Winnipeg but to me it’s exceptional because it holds a special place in my heart. So while I have made a list of places that I deem exceptional, in reality, any place can be exceptional, it all depends on your definition of the word and feel for the place.
