"Visitors to Saskatchewan always remember the people: friendly and down-to-earth and they will welcome you warmly, show you around the place and ask you to come back."
Saskatchewan’s cities are warm, welcoming and full of excitement. Visitors come to Saskatchewan for a variety of reasons - to enjoy its natural beauty, for business and as a vacation destination. Visitors who are looking for an urban experience will find culture, entertainment, sports, shopping and great food in Saskatchewan’s cities. The province’s two largest cities, Regina and Saskatoon, offer visitors a big city experience with a small town feel.
A land of great natural beauty, with rolling hills, vast prairies, and many lakes and rivers, natives of Saskatchewan have great respect for the outdoors. Grasslands National Park is dedicated to preserving a huge swath of undisturbed prairie grasslands and protecting several endangered species. Visitors will also enjoy a visit to Wanskewin Heritage Park, to explore the traditions and culture of Canada's First Nations people.
The pioneer spirit is still alive and well, and it is evident in the many rodeos, fishing derbies and pow-wows all over Saskatchewan. Feel the thrill as real life cowboys practice their riding, roping, and racing skills, pitting themselves against untamed animals, at rodeos taking place regularly all across Saskatchewan. So popular is this western sport that many high schools have a rodeo team!
