Located in the Saskatchewan province of Canada, Humboldt offers a genuine escape from the hustle-and-bustle of city life. Established as a telegraph station on the Carlton Trail, which was a popular wagon train connecting Western Canada to Fort Edmonton. Founded in 1878, this humble township played an integral part in the development of Western Canada. If you're looking for a truly relaxing vacation, or a new place to call home, you must consider Humboldt.
Humboldt - The Heart of Canadian Wilderness. Awarded the Best of Saskatchewan in 2013 by Prairies North Magazine, Humboldt is not what you'd expect from a city just under 6,000 residents. While Humboldt doesn't feature massive shopping districts and sprawling downtown cityscapes, what this town does offer is much richer than the stereotypical suburban strip malls and cookie-cutter restaurants.
With over 50-percent of the population coming from German descent, architecture and restaurants reflect this heritage. Main Street is a favorite among locals as its wide roadways are flanked by German-themed buildings. With its beauty and intrigue, Humboldt makes up for what it lacks in attractions with its individuality and small-town quaintness.
While its architecture and friendly locals are a draw within itself, what's there to do in terms of attractions? Boasting an award-winning museum and various art galleries, Humboldt is an unlikely destination for art lovers. Don't feel like spending the day inside? Then the immense outdoor green spaces and public parks outfitted with hiking trails and peaceful vistas, Humboldt is the ideal destination for those seeking quiet time with nature.
Although there are far more crowded and amenity-rich cities in this region, Humboldt is a destination for the relaxation-minded traveler. With a solid real estate and job market, you may just find your new home nestled among this Canadian prairie town.
