Feel like you are on the East Coast without leaving the prairies. You might do a double-take when you see these photos, as it isn't Peggy's Point in Nova Scotia. It is the last place you'd expect to see this because it isn't remotely close to the ocean. Instead, the super cute Cochin Lighthouse in Saskatchewan overlooks a sea of grass.\nOne hour and forty-minutes from Saskatoon or a four and a half hours drive from Regina; you can reach this quirky attraction. It is the only lighthouse in Saskatchewan and has no ocean in sight.\nEditor's Choice: This 6-km Hiking Trail In Ontario Leads To Towering Caves & Breathtaking Views\nBuilt on the peak of Pirot's Hill, you'll undoubtedly want to wear flat shoes to visit. The path up is a mini staircase workout, which is much easier than Vancouver's famous Grouse Grind.\nTo reach the lighthouse, you'll need to climb 153 steps to the top of the hill. So skip your gym session, and get a leg workout under the sunshine here instead.\nWhile the 306 steps round trip might not seem like much, they might have you burning a sweat. The path is slightly steep and uneven in places, so you'll want to go slowly.\nBut, the view from the top is stunning and worth the effort.\nView this post on Instagram 𝙸'𝚕𝚕 𝚋𝚎 𝚢𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚕𝚒𝚐𝚑𝚝𝚑𝚘𝚞𝚜𝚎, 𝚂𝚑𝚒𝚗𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚋𝚛𝚒𝚐𝚑𝚝 𝚏𝚛𝚘𝚖 𝚍𝚞𝚜𝚔 𝚝𝚒𝚕𝚕 𝚍𝚊𝚠𝚗. ♡ A post shared by 𝓜𝓪𝓻𝓲𝓷𝓮𝓵 ♡ (@itsnheiixlife) on Aug 5, 2019 at 8:16pm PDT\nAround the 11.5-metre tall lighthouse, you can enjoy a magnificent lookout. The viewing platform will let you see a long stretch of swaying grass, farmland, plus Murray and Jackfish Lakes.\nView this post on Instagram Early this morning we were in Weyburn. Now we’re in Cochin. That’s a nice 550kms of Saskatchewan driving. #exploresask #lake #summer A post shared by Kyle Burgess (@kylejamesburgess) on Jun 30, 2019 at 9:05pm PDT\nIf possible, you'll want to time your visit for early in the day to see the sunrise over Murray Lake, or at dusk for the sunset over Jackfish Lake.\nWhile you can't enter the working lighthouse, it is free to visit the exterior year-round.\nAre you saving up for a trip to Canada's east coast?
