This beautiful city by the river is Saskatoon and it provides the traveller with hidden gems to eat and drink at, from patios on Broadway Avenue to rooftop locations in the downtown area. Saskatoon is a vibrant city with festivals and events all summer long. It’s like the city comes alive after the long cold winter! To find out more about what’s happening during the year go to Saskatoon Tourism .
The University of Saskatchewan has a beautiful campus to wander around and there are museums you can visit while there. If you’re travelling with children there’s a Forestry Farm Park and Zoo, as well as a Riverside Park and Kinsmen Park.
There’s a reason they call Saskatchewan “Land of Living Skies”, but don’t be fooled into assuming the landscape is flat!! The rolling hills to the south and the boreal forest to the north give the traveller plenty to look at.
If you’re wanting to get out of town for a daytrip head to one of the lakes or parks surrounding the city, or take a drive to Batoche National Historic Site and step back in time to learn more about the history of Canada and in particular this area.
