Cochrane Southern Alberta

Grab a cone of famous MacKay’s ice cream and listen up: Cochrane is a super cute outpost just west of Calgary. It’s popular as a day-trip by bike (five to six hours round trip) or just a 20-minute drive from city limits. ● Marketable history: On Saturday mornings in summer, visit Historic Cochrane Ranche, where Alberta’s first large-scale livestock operation started in 1881. The Farmers’ Market and historical demonstrations might set your tummy rumbling, so follow a trail to a picnic site. ● Flip out: Zero Gravity skatepark is big enough to see from the highway. Bring your own skateboard or hang out and watch the action.
