Saskatoon has it all: the charms of a small town, the features of a big city, and the splendour of the prairies and all of nature’s majesty. If you’re looking for a change of scene this summer, pack the car and come to Saskatoon to do it all safely – after all, where can you find more space than in the Canadian Prairies?
There are plenty of things to do in Saskatoon this summer. Here are some of our favourites to get out while still social distancing!
WALK THE RIVER PATH
Saskatoon was lucky enough – or smart enough – to have the city buy all the land adjoining the river that runs through our fair city! That means that it’s absolutely gorgeous park land, perfect for walking, cycling, jogging, or even just sitting on a park bench and watching life happen!
Featuring miles upon miles of gentle, winding paths and the constant rush of water, one walk along the Saskatoon River is worth hundreds of hours of meditation apps or mood music. If you’re feeling stressed, there’s really nothing like it!
SASKATOON FARMER’S MARKET
Let us guess – you’ve been doing a lot of cooking this year. If that’s the case, you won’t find better ingredients than at the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market! Taking place year round but tripling in size in the summer when it opens up to a massive outdoors space, Saskatoon’s Farmer’s Market is a celebration of the prairies’ tradition of farming, and all the human connections that make life on the plains so special! Come and buy fresh garlic, astoundingly big veggies, sumptuous fruit, and all sorts of preserves and crafts prepared with care. The selection is really something special – don’t miss out!
It’s been a tough year for everyone, so we tell you with some confidence – you need a break. Saskatoon is a perfect place to get out under the big open skies and really hit reset on your mood, so we hope you’ll make a trip here. When you do, book your stay at the Home Inn & Suites Saskatoon South – our professional staff are up-to-date and dedicated to your health and comfort!
