Let’s take a minute to embrace a place that embraces winter. Like occasionally -40 😳
Our guide - Photographer, Cytotechnologist, & Panda and Shiba Inu Enthusiast Vanessa @vanpetays. "I moved to Regina first in 2013 for schooling, and i wasn't too keen on the city at first but I ended up discovering the beauty of the city. I firmly believe now that anywhere can be beautiful, its all in what you make of it!
Regina is a small city in the heart of the prairies with harsh winters but the hottest of summers. The local scene is thriving, and you will never go hungry as we have the most restaurants per capita then anywhere else in Canada! Regina has that close community feel, everyone supports everybody and that why our local businesses are doing so well! We are proud of our city and the people born and raised here.
I'm always looking for the next adventure and new place to explore with my camera. I am more of a summer person, which is ironic because I live where we have the longest and most harsh winters. However, my passion for photography and adventure draws me out on even the coldest of days."
Hey everyone! @vanpetays here, your local tour guide to Regina or more commonly know among the locals as The Queen City 👑 #slay
So if you ever find yourself in Regina and you ask the best place for breakfast (my first question I ask wherever I travel) , 10/10 people will say @freshandsweet
Here you'll probably eat yourself sick because you won't be able to choose just one item off the menu. Kinda like at thanksgiving giving when you know you should stop eating but you still go back for seconds cause it's just sooo dang good!! When the menu offers things like bacon & peach pancakes and chocolate banana bread French toast it's kinda a given you are going to gorge yourself. But hey relax everyone knows calories don't count on holidays anyway 😉
When you live somewhere where occasionally in the winter it hits -40 degrees Celsius and you can't afford to fly to the Bahamas every weekend you find ways to deal with it. My favourite escape is the Regina floral conservatory @reginagardeners When you walk in it feels like you've just escaped to a tropical paradise!!😎🌺 The conservatory is completely run by amazing and extremely knowledgable volunteers so although it's free to go look be sure to leave a couple $$ in the donation box!
Personally I love myself a good latte and one of the best places to go in Regina is @cafedripregina They make delicious drinks, and healthy fast food! They are located in the heart of the warehouse district which gives their shop such a unique feel. Exposed brick, open ceilings and these gorgeous wooden bench tables. It's insta worthy 💁🏽 @vanpetays
Dreamy local art and dreamy sunlight. Need I say more?🙌🏽😍 I love this little space filled with so much talent. @slategallery is the place to go if you want to see amazing Canadian and local art or if you just want to bask in the sunlight and enjoy a few minutes of peace and quiet😄😄 @vanpetays
Omg. Where to even start with the TAE library. Located in the back of @artfuldodgerregina is thee perfect place for everything. Sipping coffee, chatting with friends, listening or creating music. This room is magic. Grab yourself a latte and a delicious crepe or stone oven pizza from the cafe and come enjoy the magic! 🔮📚 @vanpetays
One of my fav places to eat dinner in Regina is @maltcity 🥃🍔🍷Not only is the food here to die for but the building is gorgeous! Your food might even go cold because your too busy staring at the gothic revival styled heritage building. Also just as a side note, if you want to see the best beards in town this, is the place to go as all the male servers have very impressive beards😎🙌🏽💁🏽♂️
Hey all! @vanpetays here continuing your tour through Regina, Canada. Personally I'm a huge fan of people watching and let me tell you there's no better place to do this than @atlantiscoffee The outside walls of the coffee shop are completely made of glass and it's located on one of the cities busiest streets so there always something to entertain! So grab a coffee and just sit back, relax and enjoy the show😆
Happy Saturday everyone!!😁 @vanpetays here to tell you the best place for Saturday brunch in Regina is @huntergathereryqr This vegetarian friendly hot spot is so delish. Even the meat lovers of your crew will be begging to go! Order the melt of the day with side homemade hash browns.You'll never have life regrets about this choice 😋😋
