JUST returned from this whirlwind 2-day trip. Took I-94 out of MN to I-29, which took us into Canada. The landscape along these stretches of road are pretty uneventful, especially I-29 after you get into Canada. Never have I seen such a flat place! Winnipeg is a wonderful city though. My three companions had never been to Canada, and got a kick out of the fact that people really do say "eh" there. There are lots of great restaurants in the Osbourne district and in the Forks. I recommend a place called Sushi Train. I got 12 rolls, miso, and rice for $8 Canadian! We stopped in Fargo, ND and ate at the Space Aliens restaurant. VERY kitchy and lots of fun. The overall cost of the trip for gas, hotel, and food worked out to be around $90/ person. I'd recommend this trip for any bored Minneapolitan with a weekend to spare.
