Hi Fellow VTers,
was hoping you could give me a few pointers. My family of 7(age from 2 to 90) will be visiting Sakatoon for a couple of days in oct(around 12th or 14th). Can you recommend a few places to visit ? especially any advice on scenic drives to see the fall colours etc. or even nice tourism sites.
unfortunately only there for 3 days(we are doing an 8 day tour of saskatoon, regina and winnipeg in that order).
thank you for your help in advance.
does anyone have experience with massages in Saskatoon? what did you like? What didn't you like? What was the masseuse's name?
v's larger hotels.
Anyone know about Confederation Inn, or The Westgate Inn? Both along 22nd St W & Circle Drive W
They're definately a lot cheaper than hotels like, say, Days Inn or Country Inn & Suites.
But is it worth it? I wouldn't be spending a lot of time there & extra comforts (found in more expensive hotels) aren't a priority. But then I don't want to stay in a dive either!
I just want a comfy bed, a clean room, hot water and a feeling of safety.
I'll have a car too, so distance to things won't be a problem.
So just wondering if anyone knows of & can give an opinion on these two places.
can you tell me a little more about the statues by the river? that would be very helpful! like stuff about the statues and who created them?

Well I am going to visit the lovely Saskatoon in July and looking forward to it from what you all say in the tip pages etc.
You are all in the know, so tell me if you think Westjet will have a fantastic seat sale after I buy my flights from Toronto to Sask this week ( I am looking at Canada Jazz airline) - raise your hands if you think I should hold off for a while (get those crystal balls out) It is crazy to think I can get from Belfast in NI to Toronto cheaper - anyway...
The next thing is, do any of you have brilliant insight into Car Hire in Saskatoon - I need to get a car/
big car to fit 6 of us and luggage and head to Yorkton.
Any advice would be great.
Looking forward to tasting those berries.
Love Traveldi x
Lots of advice would be greatly appreciated!
My patner and myself have been looking into moving to saskatchewan, he will be doing long haul driving, so I am looking for a nice area for myself and my three year old son to live (and feel safe) whilst he is away. I wil hopefully be going to the uni of sask, so would like to live in a nice area near to the uni, that wont take me too long to drive there each day, also i would need a nice primary school for my son.
Some general questions also...I am still young ;o) so would like to know about nightlife, shopping (the clothing type!), restaurants and that kind of thing. From what i've seen saskatchewan looks like a very nice place to live but would greatly appreciate your thoughts...many thanks.XxX
Hi, as a family we are moving to Saskatoon this Summer from just outside Manchester, England. I am trying to find the best way to transport my 2 dogs from Calgary to Saskatoon. Air, train or road I don't care. Does anyone knonw of an Airline that will take them, West Air won't as they are over the size permitted. Canada Air won't for the same reason. Is there a train that runs between the two places? Is it feasible to drive? Please I need some HELP!!

I am an American who plans on living and working in Saskatoon this summer. Since my father is a Canadian citizen and my sister is dual, I was told I too should apply for Canadian citizenship as it would have several benefits, specifically when it comes to getting a job. Does anyone know how I would go about starting the process or if it is even worth it? Any input is appreciated, thanks.
I am a crazy American who will be living in Saskatoon this summer playing baseball for the Yellow Jackets and I had a couple questions about the area. First of all, what is the weather like in the summer cuz I heard it is cold as hell in the winter. Second, ah...I got a lot of questions but I guess I'll wait and see if anybody replies first. Holla back.
I'll be visiting Saskatoon during the first and second week of May on business. Some of the information I need is: What type of clothes to pack? I know it's springtime but mother nature can be fickle. Also a nice quiet place to get a beer or three after work. I'm not looking for a meat market type dance club, (my wife won't let me date!) just a typical pub style with a good selection of tap beers.
