Landmarks & Buildings Attractions & Entertainment

There’s no denying Albertans are good at building new things. Take a look the glittering downtowns of the big cities. The structures from the past tell stories of Alberta’s booms and busts. • Now you know: Sandstone was the building material of choice a century ago. Check it out in the Beaux Arts style provincial Legislature Building in Edmonton and throughout Calgary’s downtown. • Ask the pros: The Historical Society of Alberta makes sure nobody forgets the good old days and the stories behind heritage buildings. Check out their Alberta playlist, especially on Heritage Day in August.

Jimmy Jock Boardwalk

Big Valley, Alberta

The Boardwalk features current local businesses and some others; like the local undertaker and the house of ill-repute (which have long since been closed). Visitors can visit a unique collection of businesses - an art gallery, a fudge factory, a tea room and a custom cowboy hat shop. Jimmy Jock Boardwalk is named after a local Chinese restauranteur who operated a restaurant on this same site in the earlier days. Today, a U-shaped boardwalk similar to a frontier town stands.
