When I told people I was moving to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, they questioned, “why?”
Saskatoon is unique for many reasons. The downtown core is cleaved by the South Saskatchewan River, connected by nine unique bridges. It’s one of the fastest growing cities in the Canadian Prairies, with a population of about 250,000+.
Saskatchewanians are probably the most comfortable people in the world to befriend. They’re open to conversation and very friendly without being loud and obnoxious (quite the contrary). They also say “Sorry” for everything, even when it is not their fault in any interpretation of the scenario whatsoever. Who couldn’t befriend someone like that!?
Before you travel to Saskatchewan, visit the Tourism Saskatoon website for seasonal events listings and things to do year-round: http://www.tourismsaskatoon.com/things-to-do/. There are over 65 annual events including festivals, expos, marathons, conferences and city celebrations – with about 40 of them in the summer! The Saskatoon food scene is phenomenal, with many excellent, independent farm-to-table restaurants, cafés, and bakeries.
