Southern Alberta’s rural charms, lakeside villages and western history make for all kinds of adventures you just couldn’t experience anywhere else. ● Cowboy culture: Hop on a horse for a day or three. You’ll see firsthand what indigenous people, early pioneers and ranchers saw in this part of the world when it was still a wild, wild west. ● Theatre: Dinosaurs and Jesus? Yeah, it happens in the world-renowned Canadian Badlands Passion Play. ● Go local: Hit a rural or urban farmers market for local produce and grass-fed beef, pickles and preserves, artisan crafts and homegrown entertainment.
