Known as the Paris of the Prairies because of its eight bridges spanning the South Saskatchewan River, Saskatoon is one of the fastest-growing cities in Canada. Just like the City of Light, there’s a palpable sense that this is a place on the move, with exciting additions around each corner, whether it’s the recently-opened Remai Modern museum or a string of new restaurants, breweries and bars. To tap into the vibe, check into one of these fine Saskatoon hotels with a pool – all bookable with Culture Trip.
Doing a good impression of the deck of a cruise ship, the newly revamped water park at the Saskatoon Hotel has a giant waterslide, pools for both children and adults, two whirlpools and a snack bar. Once you’ve dried off, drive down to the Forestry Farm Park and Zoo and hang out with meerkats, Goeldi’s monkeys, grizzly bears and the latest star attraction – a snow leopard.
