Brief look at Saskatoon
Apart from being fun to say out loud, Saskatoon, with its thriving art and live theatre scene, is the place to visit when going to Saskatchewan (mostly because there really isn't much else to do in Saskatchewan to begin with). Saskatoon is centrally located in the province and is actually larger (population-wise) than Regina, the capital city of the province. Booking a hotel downtown Saskatoon is a safe choice if you'd like to be in the heart of the city, known as the Central Business District. However, if you want to save a few bucks and need to stay near the airport you can easily find a hotel near Saskatoon Airport, which is only about 7km northwest of the downtown core.
What to do in Saskatoon
Saskatoon is home to many award winning golf courses and something like 7 bridges throughout the city and has been appropriately nicknamed The City of Bridges. In addition, because Saskatoon spans across the South Saskatchewan River, many riverbank trails can be explored, if bridges alone don't tickle your fancy.
Saskatoon is really known as a hub city. Many travellers moving across our huge country tend to end up in Saskatoon to overnight. The closest major city would be Regina, which is about 250km southeast of Saskatoon.
