Moose Jaw Things to Do

  • The Tunnels of Moose Jaw

    A fun adventure, this tour is based on local lore about the tunnels. They were thought to be old wives tales until a car fell through the road about 20 years ago. Rumor has it that Al Capone ran a bootlegging business here.There are two tours: The Al Capone tour and the Chinese History tour. Both use actors to tell the story. They get the tourists...

  • City Hall

    City Hall is a classic structure. Gives this smallish city a regal air. The city may be small, but it is not to be trifled with (unless, of course, your name is Al Capone, then trifle away).The City of Moose Jaw has one of the best websites around for a city of its size. If you are passing through Moose Jaw or staying overnight, I strongly suggest...

  • Brunswick Hotel

    Moose Jaw was incorporated as a city on November 20, 1903. That means as I write this tip--Moose Jaw is 100 years and two days old. On theday of incorporation the newly formed city held a celebration at the Brunswick Hotel. It is said that the festivities lasted until 3:30 a.m. when God Save the King was sung by all in attendence. The Brunswick...

  • Many murals of Moose Jaw

    It is a charming tradition to decorate the old brick and mortar buildings with murals chronicling the history of Moose Jaw and Saskatchewan. In this case we have a mural showing the importance of agriculture in this part of the world. The endless grainfields of Saskatchewan are legendary and at one time they were farmed by horse and steam. Hard...

  • Al Capone haunts Moose Jaw

    Most people associate Al Capone with Chicago and Alcatraz. But the infamous and cutthroat mobster had to get his bootleg booze from somewhere. It became impractical supplying the thirsty denizens of a city the size of Chicago with bathtub hootch. Capone was first and foremost a businessman--not so different than Ken Ley of Enron. Anything to turn a...

  • Homemade goodness

    Named the Chocolate Moose, it is actually more of a tourist souvenir store than a sweets shop. There's lots of t-shirts, posters, souvenir mugs, etc. Quite large selection, but I wasn't looking closely so I can't speak for the prices.The fudge and ice cream counter is what likely draws the people in, but they both take up the smallest space. They...

    For the life of me, I have no idea what a night's stay at Capone's Hideaway Theme Motel would be like. This was our view of the motel as we sat eating our dismal pizza across the street at Brewsters. We saw lots of people come and go from the Theme Motel. They advertise theme rooms. But what goes on inside is anyone's guess. Do they have gangsters burst into the room at three o'clock in the morning with tommy guns ablazing? Or is every mini-bar just filled with Capone's bootleg hootch? All I know is that I'm not brave enough to try to find out.

Moose Jaw Off The Beaten Path

    Did you know that Moose Jaw has a hot spring that you can soak in? On the fourth floor of Temple Gardens Hotel is a mineral spa. The healing waters are suppose to be very similar to those that the Romans bathed in in Bath, England. I was fortunate enough to be be able to watch the Canada Day (July 1st) fireworks from the hot springs. If you find yourself in this small town in Saskatchewan, the spa is definitely worth a visit!
