We will discuss many of the major worldwide destinations served via our affiliate network on this blog. Today we will discuss the two major cities in the prairie province of Saskatchewan, Regina and Saskatoon.
The provincial capital and the main urban centre of Southern Saskatchewan, Regina was named for Queen Victoria of Great Britain (regina being Latin for “queen”) after the region was referred to by its Cree name, Wascana, for the early years of European settlement. Wascana remains the name of a small creek and the man-made lake that resulted from a damming of the creek and is today a public park and community focal point in Regina’s core, Wascana Centre. The Provincial Legislative Building, Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the University of Regina campuses, and other arts and culture centres are concentrated in this area. The Warehouse District, formerly an industrial freight depot on the busy transcontinental railroad line, is now becoming Regina’s most fashionable and desirable neighbourhood to live, shop, and play. The Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders, a major feature of civic and provincial identity, play their home games at Mosaic Stadium.
Regina’s metropolitan area counts over 230,000 residents, which makes it smaller than Saskatoon to the north. Nestled on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River in the centre of the province, Saskatoon is Saskatchewan’s largest city, with 300,000 inhabitants in the metro area. The city is divided into east and west sides by the river. Saskatoon’s major attractions include the University of Saskatchewan campus, the historic and architecturally impressive Delta Bessborough Hotel, and the Mendel Art Gallery. River trails and other outdoor pursuits are also popular in Saskatoon, as are seasonal festivals.
Both cities are served by full-service airports, which offer flights to domestic destinations and sunny vacation spots alike: Regina International Airport and John G. Diefenbaker International Airport in Saskatoon.
