Together with Regina-based technology startup Krugo, Tourism Regina has launched a modern, accessible digital guide to help visitors and residents navigate all that Regina has to offer as a destination.
“Whether you’re from around the corner or across the country – here for a day or lived here all your life – our new guide feature is designed to help you discover an authentic and valuable experience that leave you with a taste of being part of our community,” Tourism Regina’s Chief Tourism and Visitor Growth Officer Chelsea Galloway said. “And as Covid restrictions ease, the opportunities to experience Regina will only get better!”
The guides allow visitors to explore a wide variety of “only in Regina” experiences. It includes sections on Regina attractions, landmarks, art scene, dining, neighborhoods and activities. It provides sample itineraries in and around the city. It’s designed to be expanded and updated by the minute, ensuring visitors will always find something new.
Regina’s hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions continue to do remarkable work to provide fun, memorable and safe opportunities for visitors and residents alike. With Covid vaccinations on the rise and case numbers dropping, Saskatchewan’s Re-Opening Roadmap will create even more opportunities.
Starting in June, and as guidelines permit, Regina’s iconic Saskatchewan Science Centre and RCMP Heritage Centre hope to open their doors once again, with more attractions working to re-open soon. Restaurants, breweries and pubs have already begun to open with reduced capacities. Add to that the many events that are working closely with the Saskatchewan Health Authority to be able to welcome event goers – residents and visitors alike can be optimistic about a busy, safe summer. At the same time, Tourism Regina will launch an “Only in Regina” marketing campaign, highlighting unique to Regina experiences.
“Covid may have changed the way we do things for a while, but it hasn’t changed our ability to show our visitors an amazing time,” Saskatchewan Science Centre CEO Sandy Baumgartner said. “This summer and beyond, we’re going to do what we do best: roll out the welcome mat and make people happy. We can’t wait!”
The guide feature is a key part of a broader short-term recovery plan for the sector. While still being finalized, the plan is the result of hard work from key industry stakeholders and will be formally announced in the coming weeks.
