'Sundown in the Paris of the Prairies. Wheat Kings have all their treasures buried.'
The Tragically Hip summed it up pretty well. Saskatoon, the Paris of the Prairies, is full of hidden treasures. The South Saskatchewan River winds through the lively downtown, enhancing the city's genteel air, a quality missing from its rival Regina to the south. This is the most-cultured stop between Winnipeg and Edmonton.
Despite the town's legacy as an 1883 settlement by Ontario's Temperance Colonization Society, it knows how to heat up cold winter days and short summer nights.
