Saskatoon is a small city, more the size of Nanimo than Winnipeg. But, it felt alive – the streets had people, and shops were not all borded up. It even has an American Apparel and Lululemon downtown, and two Starbucks. You can hang out in the park down by the river, and according to the cute girls I met at the ice cream stand, that’s all there is to do on a summer’s afternoon in Saskatoon.
While the update may not reflect it, I liked Saskatoon. It wasn’t as spread out as other prairie cities, and it had people in it.
