Food, Shopping & Relaxation

Because no traveller can survive on caffeine, beef jerky and breathtaking natural wonders alone, refuelling is essential. • Eat up: Your Alberta things-to-eat checklist: all the beef, all the bison, at least one bite of poutine (it’s very filling), and some locally grown vegetables. • Shop: You need souvenirs. Or jewellery by a Canadian designer. Or a new lamp. What you don’t need is an excuse to drop some loonies at Alberta’s big malls and quirky retail neighbourhoods. • Spa-ahh: Pause your hike, park on a log and ask your favourite travelling companion for a foot rub. Or, even better: soak in a natural hot spring or book into a relaxing mountain spa.

Leighton Art Centre is where art and nature come together in Southern Alberta’s Foothills. More than just a unique historic home once owned by a pair of renowned artists, it's a vibrant and open space for creativity, inspiring all who visit to explore, appreciate and create. In 2012, Barbara Leighton - a woman who lived and unconventional life and the Centre's founder - was posthumously honoured as one of '100 Outstanding Albertans' in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede. Her legacy is a beautiful one indeed.
