Overview
More
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have been an integral part of Canada's historical and cultural landscape since 1873, helping to form and protect our great nation, and playing a significant role in creating the Canadian identity. Situated on the doorstep of RCMP Academy, "Depot" Division in Regina, Saskatchewan, where Mounties have trained since 1885, the RCMP Heritage Centre is appropriately located where the tradition begins. The Centre brings to life the incredible story of the RCMP and its role in the development of Canada using state of the art exhibits, multimedia technologies, and engaging programming and tours.

We are coming for our grandsons graduation June 10,11,12 and are wondering what are the closest hotels to stay at? We are flying in and will have to rent a car, but would still like to be close to the Heritage Center. Thank you for any help, for a couple of old crocks.
