Red Deer Central Alberta

Red Deer is more than just excellent doughnuts on the highway between Calgary and Edmonton (though it’s that, too). The mid-sized city has a great food scene, no doubt inspired by the local bounty, and plenty to do outdoors. Go big: Red Deer has a reputation as a place to do crazy things like muddy obstacle races and water sports that’ll make you feel like a superhero. ● Eat up: There are 9,100 farms in the area with some offering tours, eats and other tributes to rural life. ● Only here: How wily are you? Ranch Tracker lets you loose on a real ranch. Your job? Try and escape the clutches of a cowboy. Win or lose, you get a steak at the end.
