OLD TIME RELIGION IN THE STRAWBERRY HILLS: One of Saskatchewan's best kept secrets is the wonderfully scenic Strawberry Hills, a rolling, pastoral paradise of farms and acreages just minutes east of Saskatoon along Highway 5. Besides its natural beauty and endless views, the area is also home to two quaint historic churches built in the early 1900s.
HYDE PARK: If you're not lucky enough to live in the Rosewood neighbourhood, feel free to drop by and enjoy Hyde Park, the spectacular wetlands conservation area that graces its doorstep. A co-operative development between the City of Saskatoon, the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation and Ducks Unlimited Canada, the park is home to a wide variety of plants and is a natural stopover spot for more than 100 species of birds. While it has its own winter beauty, you will enjoy it more come spring.
CASWELL SCHOOL: One of Saskatoon's historic gems
CRANBERRY FLATS: Lots to see and enjoy in the 10-minute walk from the parking lot to the river lookout

VISIT TO THE WEIR: Lunch for pelicans, entertainment for people
32 MINUTES IN ABERDEEN: Strip of blue morphs into angry cloud and wall of water; as clouds pass overhead, deluge hits
