Saskatoon may not be one of the first cities in Canada that spring to mind when you think of cultural sophistication, but it should be. With a plethora of scenic waterway-spanning bridges, uber-fresh farm-to-table cuisine, and a thriving local music scene, it's a great place to sightsee and unwind. And those aren't the only reasons why airfare to Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International Airport (YXE) looks pretty attractive. Engaging theater. Vibrant independent films. Year-round sports recreation. Flights to Saskatoon carry world-weary vacationers to a surprisingly cosmopolitan city that's been called "Paris of the Prairies."
Travelers won't have to worry about getting right into the action once their Saskatoon flights have landed. The airport is about four miles from downtown, and there is an abundance of transportation options. You can buy bus tickets and board one of the buses that service Saskatoon International, or ask a taxi coordinator (who's on duty from early morning until the last flight arrival every day) to help you catch a cab. Also, your hotel in Saskatoon might even be able to get you into the city; at least six hotels offer complimentary shuttle rides. After you check in, take a moment to see the sights Saskatoon has to offer. Learn a little about Canadian government at The Diefenbaker Canada Centre, which combines Prime Ministerial archives with a museum. Stretch your legs at the Wanuskewin Heritage Park while discovering the history of the area's indigenous peoples. Or grab a bite to eat downtown where you'll find restaurants specializing in Vietnamese, Indian, French, and diner fare.
