Emerald Park is #1 and Yorkton #4? For what, you say? It's a list from Expedia.ca, rating the "Coziest Cities in Canada".
How did they decide on this? Well, they analyzed "thousands" of their hotel user reviews and found the top Canadian cities "with the highest comfort ratings". The say the reviews "referenced everything from pillows to fireplaces and anything in between".
What about Moose Jaw? We ranked #40 out of 55. I supposed you could say being 40th in the whole country is good but I can't imagine anyone rating Sault Ste. Marie and Winnipeg ahead of us. They did. In fact, Winnipeg ranked #28, two spots ahead of Radium Hot Springs. I've been to both places. I'd rank Radium way better than Winnipeg.
Then again, Moose Jaw ranks higher than Fernie AND Whistler, BC. I spent a night in Fernie in the middle of winter, sitting around a fire and looking out at mountains of snow. I'm not sure I've ever been cozier.
Swift Current, Saskatoon and Lloydmister were the only other Saskatchewan cities to make the top 55.
