Regina is the capital city, and cultural
and commercial hub of Saskatchewan, the Canadian province bordering
the US states of Montana and North Dakota. While not a celebrated
tourist destination in itself, the city is the region's main
transport hub and a common stop for travellers. Visitors spending a
day or two in town will find a few interesting museums, good
shopping opportunities and a few vast green spaces scattered
In fact, Regina may have more open space
per person than any other Canadian city, making it a popular choice
for outdoor enthusiasts interested in biking, cross-country skiing
and long walks. The Wascana Lake occupies the centre and is perfect
for boating in summer and skating in winter.
The city is also known for its famed
Wascana Centre, a park built around Wascana Lake. It's home to the
Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the Regina Conservatory of Music and an
art gallery, as well as the Saskatchewan Centre of Arts. The
Cathedral Village has cafes, bookshops and a few good restaurants.
Visitors should also be sure to check out the local dance, music
and theatre scenes.
