National Geographic Travel - 50 Places of a Lifetime: Canada
National Geographic Travel has partnered with the Canadian Tourism Commission to launch a "digital super magazine", 50 Places of a Lifetime: Canada. Aside from spectacular photography and intriguing stories, the super mag’s content includes practical travel information on when to go, where to stay, how to get around, what to eat or drink, what to buy, and what to read or watch before you go. There are also helpful links as well as a fun fact about each destination.
Among the places that made the list are three Saskatchewan destinations, here's what the magazine had to say about each destination:
No matter how wired or worldly we may be, the old-fashioned romance of the outlaw hiding in wide-open spaces never seems to fade. Just north of the U.S. border, Canada's wild west lies in the rugged middle of the country, in Saskatchewan's Big Muddy Valley.
Surrounded by endless fields of shimmering wheat, today’s Saskatoon is a pocket of Saskatchewan's culture, vitality, and welcoming prairie spirit. These days, city streets are buzzing with an infusion of new restaurants and residents, breweries and bars, making Saskatoon one of Canada’s fastest growing cities.
Here in Saskatchewan's heart lies a million-acre park, where vast prairies meet parkland and boreal forest, and free-roaming plains bison mingle among a diverse collection of wildlife, including timber wolves and 195 species of birds. No wonder this is the most popular of Canada's 54 national parks.
