While it’s certainly been hard not being able to travel very far and wide over the past year with the pandemic, booking a local staycation is a great way to still get all that excitement from a vacation while keeping safe and close to home.  Swift Current has plenty to discover — especially in the springtime. Keep reading for fun-filled activities to make the most of a seasonal Saskatchewan staycation. 

 

Book a Tee Time 

Golfing is a favourite local pastime in Swift Current and we have plenty of greens to show for it. The Elmwood Golf Club is one of the oldest courses in Canada, dating back to 1919. The 18-hole championship golf course sprawls across more than 6,000 yards, and the surrounding woodlands and creek makes both for a scenic and challenging terrain to play on. The on-site restaurant is currently offering dine-in, take-out, and curbside pickup.

 

Explore the Great Sandhills 

Located an hour north west of Swift Current within the Great Sandhills Ecological Reserve and spanning more than 19,000 square kilometres, the Great Sandhills are some of the biggest sets of active dunes in the country. It’s truly a unique sight to behold and the sweeping, ever-changing landscape is perfect for nature photography and bird watching. 

 

Stroll Around Riverside Park 

Quiet, scenic, and versatile, with a walking path that frames the creek, Riverside Park is the perfect place for a peaceful springtime stroll. Pack your lunch for a picnic or go play in the many recreational areas that include tennis courts, a soccer field, and 400 metre oval track. 

 

Of course, no staycation is complete without an overnight stay! Book your getaway with us here at Home Inn Swift Current for comfortable, convenient, and clean accommodations in the heart of town.
