Saskatoon has been ramping up its public art in a major way lately, specifically when it comes to murals. I’m sure there’s more than double this many new larger-than-life pieces this year but I went out and captured a few notable new ones for you.

There’s no doubt that the most charming streets in Saskatoon are those built around pedestrians, with lots of small, unique, locally-owned shops. Let’s not, however, be too quick to forget about 8th street.

Saturdays & Sundays are for enjoying yourself – you’ve worked all week and whether you’re hungover from a big weekend night or not, brunch can be the best way to begin a good day-off in the city. Once you’ve assembled your brunch team, you’ve got a few options to enjoy.
Ask a resident what their favourite part about Saskatoon is, and if they don’t say “the people” they’ll surely say “our river.” So how can you make the most of the South Saskatchewan River beyond just taking great instagram photos from The Broadway Bridge? We’ll tell you!
Coffee is crucial. How is anybody supposed to change the world if they don’t start with a great cup of coffee in the morning? Let’s take your through some of the best coffee shops in a few of our favourite neighbourhoods in the city shall we?
