On day four of our Saskatchewan road trip, we traveled south on Highway 11 (also known as the Louis Riel Trail). This four-lane highway connects the three major cities in our province. There are many roadside attractions that can be seen from the highway. No matter how many times we’ve traveled this route, we’ve never stopped to take a closer look at any of them. It seemed we were always in a hurry to get somewhere (appointments, weddings, sports events, etc). We decided to change that on this trip.

The World’s Largest Coffee Pot welcomes visitors to Davidson, SK. It symbolizes the warmth and hospitality of this prairie town of approximately 1,000 people. At 24 feet tall, if filled with coffee, the pot would hold 150,000 cups.

I included our car in my feature photo to give a better idea of the size of the pot and cup.

Each side of the pot has a different collage of art, representing all things Saskatchewan and Canada.

There’s a picnic area with washroom facilities on site, as well as two more roadside attractions, which I’ll feature separately over the next two days. We had an enjoyable hour long stop here, during which we learned so much about this area and it’s history.

“Because the greatest part of a road trip isn’t arriving at your destination. It’s all the wild stuff that happens along the way.”
