Downtown Moose Jaw is almost like a period movie set. The entire area is a mash up of 1910s-1940s architecture, with a bustling and vibrant main street full of original shops tying it all together. I actually became fascinated by the alleyways because of their painted ads, old fire escapes, and crumbling facades. There is so much character in that small city, and they've done a decent job of banking on their brief historic connections to Al Capone and that era. I was genuinely surprised by what a unique place it was. It's certainly worth pulling off of the Trans-Canada for.
