Grande Prairie Northern Alberta

While you’re in Grande Prairie, try not to trip over any skulls from the late Cretaceous period. For real. The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum can get you up to speed regarding the locals circa 75 million years ago. In summer, make time for a local festival or agricultural fair. Add a bag of mini doughnuts and you’re practically a local. ● Believe it: The Pipestone Creek bonebed is rife with fossils. Get a tour and channel your inner paleontologist. ● Get urban: Muskoseepi Park features more than a dozen kilometres of paved trails begging for a bike picnic.
