It’s true, Regina can get chilly in the winter. However, being a true Canadian means not being daunted by the minus degrees and windchill. Reginians love spending time outdoors regardless of the weather, -40 has nothing on us. Not completely sold on the cold weather? Not to worry, Regina also offers plenty of indoor activities to keep you both warm and entertained.

10 Ways to Enjoy Winter Like a Local:

1. Eat some brunch: basically, all Canadians love to brunch, but really, everyone loves to brunch! Check out Fresh & Sweet or Skye Cafe & Bistro.

2. Sip on a warm drink: Regina is full of cute cafes to grab a latte! Some of our favs include The Everyday Kitchen, Core Coffee YQR, and The Naked Bean Espresso Bar & Café.

4. Shop until you drop: Do a little South Regina shop around tour. Browse for home décor at Crocus & Ivy, shop designer labels at Havik and finish up at Southland Mall.

5. Stroll through an art gallery: several galleries in the city all feature different art genres, try Slate Gallery, Nouveau Gallery, or the MacKenzie Art Gallery.

6. Listen to some live tunes: there are lots of live music venues in the city hosting different musical genres. Check them out Casino Regina Show Lounge or The Cure Kitchen + Bar.

7. Enjoy a live production: Conexus Arts Centre hosts many things from theatre, music and dance. While Globe Theatre offers outstanding theatre (they are closing June 2020 for several years for renovations, so enjoy it while you can!)

8. Relax with a cocktail: after a long day exploring the city kick your feet up and enjoy a signature cocktail at Avenue Restaurant or The Capitol. 

9. Pamper Yourself: Enjoy a float at Float Now, a practice that promotes ultimate relaxation and stress reduction. Alternatively, book yourself a massage or pedicure at Damara Day Spa in the Hotel Saskatchewan.

10. Indoor Fun: There are plenty of activities perfect for groups and socializing. Try out the batting cages at Baller’s Rec Room or chuck a couple of axes at Lumberjax Axe Throwing.
