Introducing Regina

Regina has come far since its days as a hunting ground for the Cree people, who called it Wascana, meaning 'pile of bones.' Huge sums have gone into making the provincial capital an oasis in the prairie; lush parks like Wascana Centre cover former grasslands. Still, this compact city will never be a vital destination, rather it makes a convenient stop as you cross Saskatchewan. You can walk to most areas of interest, including the gentrified Cathedral Village area just west of downtown, and you'll never be more than a few blocks away from Albert St, the main north–south spine.
