Be Mine, Valentine: 5 Reasons to Share the Love at Our Hotel In Saskatoon
Did you know that Saskatoon is known as the Paris of the Prairies? While the nickname is derived from the number of bridges that cross the South Saskatchewan River, like the City of Lights on the Seine, Saskatoon is also known to be have an air of romance. If fact, it has been listed on more than one occasion as one of Canada’s most romantic cities by Amazon.ca. Take your better half on a romantic getaway to our hotel in Saskatoon this Valentine’s Day and seek out some these loved up events and attractions:
1. Go for A Walk along the Railway Bridge
Another similarity between Paris and Saskatoon can be found along the latter city’s Railway Bridge, which was built in 1908 and is the second oldest surviving bridge in Saskatoon. Frowned upon by the city’s maintenance crews, the CPR bridge has been known as a site for love locks, which began as a tradition in Paris when couples would leave a padlock on a bridge railing as a token of their love. While you may not be able to leave a love lock, you can still enjoy a leisurely stroll along the bridge’s pedestrian walkway, which was added in 1909.
2. Flashback to the ’80s with a Date to the Arcade
If you’re looking to relive or experience a date night from the 1980s, why not hit one of the two Ruckers amusement centres in Saskatoon? Enjoy a game of air hockey or fish out the tokens to play the pinball machine or other vintage arcade games such as Pac-Man or Donkey Kong at the Ruckers location on 22nd Street West, just a 15-minute drive of our Saskatoon hotel. You and your date can also enjoy a burger, fries and shake at Fuddruckers, located at Ruckers’ 8th Street East location.
