A highway in the prairies is just a highway, isn’t it? The road from Regina to Yorkton may seem like just another stretch of uninteresting highway, but for travellers who are willing to look a bit closer, the route offers everything from museums to parks to a hand-painted church. With so much to offer, Highway 10 from Regina to Yorkton is worth a second look.
The journey starts in Regina, where travellers can visit the Saskatchewan Science Centre. IMAX programs, visiting exhibits, and much more make the centre interesting for the whole family. Visiting the RCMP Academy (Depot) and Museum or the Saskatchewan Legislature can fill an afternoon or more before setting out on the highway towards Yorkton. History was made in the area along the route, a story that visitors can experience at the Fort Qu’Appelle and Melville Heritage Museums, and train enthusiasts will want to visit the Melville Railway Museum.
At the end of the journey are the sights of Yorkton, including the Western Development Museum, which showcases Saskatchewan’s social and economic history. With other locations in North Battleford, Saskatoon, and Moose Jaw, the museum gives an extensive picture of life in Saskatchewan. The St. Mary’s Ukrainian Church is also worth seeing for its brick structure and painted dome. On the Regina to Yorkton highway, the end of the road is just as interesting as the beginning.
