Are you in Alberta? Or Saskatchewan? That depends on which side of Meridian Avenue you’re standing on. The provincial line runs straight through Lloydminster, so you get the best of both provinces all in one place.
A Tale of One City
Unlike most cities that straddle state or provincial lines, Lloydminster is one single municipality. While governing the city presents unique challenges, travellers benefit from seeing both provinces from one beautiful starting point.
Geographically, you can expect aspen woodlands, wetlands, shrub lands, fescue grasslands, and gently rolling hills – a combination that makes the area picturesque and great for birding. Check out Sandy Beach Regional Park on the Saskatchewan side and book hotels in Lloydminster near Vermilion Provincial Park. Both have excellent opportunities for lake or riverfront fun.
Making the Most of Your Trip
A holiday in Lloydminster isn’t complete without a taste of local cuisine. Farmer’s markets provide fresh garden greens and homemade preserves. Visit the Cheesiry for cheeses made in the Tuscan tradition, or head to Harvest to Home Market for healthy cuisine or cooking lessons with trained chefs.
Attractions such as the Lloydminster Cultural and Science Centre, the Border City Petting Zoo, and live music venues downtown are also great reasons to visit the city.
