I decided to drive, along with my best friend, from Vancouver to Saskatoon. When I told my friends, their reactions ranged from "Saskatche-where?" to "Why would you want to drive two days only to end up there?" But if you think that Saskatoon is just some hick town in the middle of the Prairies, then think again. I discovered a vibrant city that has retained its small town charm while producing new restaurants and shops that rival those of its bigger neighbours.
Are you sick of hearing about the financial woes in your country or city? Think there's nowhere in North America, Europe or maybe the entire world where you can duck from the doom and gloom of an economic downturn that seems like it will never abate? Then you need to go to Saskatoon.
