<< Beautiful and Regina don't mix >>. I don't know if that is a sarcastic statement or not, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.
Regina is a city stuck onto a flat tract of land, part of the Canadian prairies. Regina has no mountain as a backdrop, no major river passing through, and no massive architectural masterpiece acting as a beacon to mankind. But I don't think ugly is a word that would be in the same sentence with Regina, not by a longshot.
There has been a lot of talk about the legislature buildings, in the area of the city now called Wascana Center-> http://www.wascana.sk.ca/index.php?id=home.
This is a map of the area, which shows some of the features and buildings-> wascana.sk.ca/fileadmin/…Guide_Map.pdf
There are several notable places to visit in the Wascana Park area, one in particular, the Mackenzie Art Gallery/TC Douglas building-> http://www.mackenzieartgallery.sk.ca/
Places mentioned before, Hotel Saskatchewan, Casino Regina, Cornwall Center, along with a host of other places can be found downtown. The twin towers are also downtown, and can be viewed from Victoria park. Some of the streets are one way and parking can sometimes be quite the issue, but you could easily spend a couple of days downtown, shopping and siteseeing. Here is a map with a list of various places-> reginadowntown.ca/images/pdfs/downtown_regin…
