SK has about half the population concentrated in two cities both of which are much smaller than Winnipeg. And then has maybe 600,000 people spread out across the rest of the provinces.

Those kinds of spreads are a direct result of the geography and layouts of the waterways and lakes in both province:

I think it's underrated by many. Saskatoon is lovely town, but yes, the winters are something I'm not a fan of. Saskatchewan is a big place and much of it I don't know much about.

I spent some time visiting a farm in Saskatchewan when I was a kid, and remember the landscape being so different from where I'm from. I loved it.

I then got to know it a bit better when I worked on the trains. Sitting in the Park Car watching the sun come up over the fields was magical.

I haven't been in years, but a friend just got back from Saskatoon, and had a wonderful time.

Every one should experience the prairies. In some ways it can be more humbling standing in a landscape where the horizon is laid flat out in front of you, than in the middle of the mountains.

It isn't underrated by members of the Flat Earth Society

I'm just being silly - I've never had the pleasure of going. Same with Manitoba but I wouldn't mind checking out those Provinces and cities like Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Regina.

Saskatchewan is definitely underrated.

On my driving trips across Canada, I always stop in Regina. If I can catch up with a colleague there, so much the better, but it is an interesting city anyway. Lots of great places and shops along Scarth Street, and one of the best steakhouses in Canada (in my opinion) is The Diplomat, on Broad Street. Stay at the Hotel Saskatchewan for a taste of what travel used to be like (gentlemen, you may want to get a shave and a haircut in its barber shop--a real, old-fashioned barber shop, with real old-fashioned barbers). Or just stop into the lounge, where they will not laugh at you for ordering an Old Style Pilsner. Heck, given that "Pil" sponsors the Roughriders, they just might applaud you on game nights.

Saskatoon is ... well, Saskatoon. Yes, there is the statue of John Diefenbaker selling newspapers, but there is also the peace of the Hotel Bessborough's Sunken Garden. Heck, the Bessborough is another of Canada's great railway hotels, and worth a stay. The Bessborough also has the Samurai Japanese Restaurant--flat-top Japanese grill that beats anything similar I've had in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. Enjoy the river walk, just off Spadina. Saskatoon is different from Regina, and worth a visit.

Sakatchewan is underrated--except by those of us who have been there.

Don't spill the secrets Chevy. Otherwise they'll go to Prince Albert and Waskesiu as well.
