A website called flightnetwork has named Canora as one of the top 50 small towns to visit in Canada.
Shereen Mohammed, who authors a blog on the site, said she spent “a few days in Canora last summer and really enjoyed my time there.”
The list can be found at http://www.flightnetwork.com/blog/canadas-top-50-small-towns/.
“When Canadians or international travellers plan a trip to Canada, they tend to choose major cities as travel destinations. However, the Great White North offers far more than these metropolitan cities.
“With the Canadian dollar continuing to decrease, this list of 50 small towns in Canada would make a great option for a family, a couple or even a group of friends. These destinations can easily be explored as a weekend getaway or simply hopping on a quick flight,” she said.
For the site, she says that Canora’s best features are its natural ones. The area’s lakes, trails and wilderness provide some of the best outdoor recreation in Saskatchewan for those who enjoy truly getting away from it all.
“Anyone who prefers to spend a majority of their vacation outdoors will find Canora a perfect vacation destination. The town is known for offering some of the best hunting and fishing in the province, but visitors can also explore countless nearby lakes and hiking trails.”
As the site refers to as a “fun fact,” it notes that Canora is located in the centre of Saskatchewan’s “Good Spirit Country,” which is known for its abundance of hunting and fishing spots, golf courses and other areas welcoming outdoor sports enthusiasts of all kinds.
For the main attractions in the community, she recommended that people visit the CN Station House Museum, Canada’s only Toy and Autograph Museum and the Canora Ukrainian Heritage Museum.
