Things to see in Saskatchewan
Regina is Saskatchewan’s capital city and home to the Provincial Legislative Building, which was constructed using 34 types of marble shipped in from various parts of the world. This building hosts unique galleries that are worth a stroll. While in Regina, don’t forget to watch as recruits train in Regina’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Training Depot and Centennial Museum. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, you can drive to the city of Moose Jaw, just west of Regina and visit its infamous underground tunnels, rumoured to have been Al Capone’s hideout during the prohibition and used for smuggling alcohol. If visiting Saskatchewan in the summer, take a dip in the small saltwater lake formed by receding glaciers called Little Manitou Lake, located south-east of Saskatoon in south central Saskatchewan.
