Planning a trip doesn't always have to mean getting on a plane and taking off somewhere across the world. As much as we'd all love to do that, we don't always have the time and or cash to make something like that happen but there's plenty of opportunities to create adventures that are close to home.
Moose Jaw is perfect for making a day trip when you want to get out of the city and explore a different scene. The downtown area has a number of cute little shops, places to eat, and things to see. So the next time you've got a free Saturday or Sunday, hop in your car with an adventure buddy and make the most out of visiting MJ.
Here is a go-to guide for a day trip to Moose Jaw:
10:00 am - Pit stop at Common Cafe & Bakery
Kick off your day trip by grabbing a cup of coffee and a snack at one of Moose Jaw's most charming cafes. The common is a bustling place where locals hang out and is great spot for taking in all the action that's going on downtown Moose Jaw.
10:30 am - Shopping Spree at Rowan Clothing Co
Once you've got your caffeine fix for the day, take a stroll around downtown and check out one of MJ's trendiest clothing boutiques, Rowan Clothing Co. They've got some killer clothing styles for both men and women so there's a good chance you won't be walking out of there empty handed.

1:30 - Spa afternoon at Temple Gardens
You've had a busy morning of touring around so now it's time to settle in for some serious afternoon relaxation. Book yourself in for a massage or spa treatment and then go for a dip in the mineral pool. You'll leave this place feeling fresher than the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

6:00 - Grab dinner and check out some live music at Bobby's Place.
Before you start heading back home, stop off at Bobby's Place Olde World Tavern for your final meal of the day. Offering some Maritime favorites right here in Sask, it's definitely worth try. If you're there at the right time, you might even catch some local musicians entertaining you as you eat.
