City Of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

In 1882, the founders of Saskatchewan's largest city pitched their tents on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River. They were searching for Utopia. Today, as you sip cappuccino in a café in the trendy Broadway shopping district, jog around the campus grounds or watch Shakespeare under a circus tent, you'd have to say they built it for themselves.

Saskatoon shines! That's the byword in this vibrant city, a university town that boasts more than its fair share of craft shops, galleries, attractions and festivals, from jazz to flicks to river races. Enjoy the Western Development Museum, Ukrainian Museum of Canada, Diefenbaker Canada Centre, Saskatoon Zoo and Wanuskewin Heritage Park. Explore the Meewasin Valley Trail, 21 km of riverbank trails through the heart of the city.
