We live in a small town, with easy access to Edmonton (1 hr), Red Deer (30 min), and Calgary (2.5 hr). Driving in Alberta is required and fun - excellent roads that are wide, straight, and flat (100-120 mph). Alberta is known for its camping, music and cultural festivals, rodeo, and beautiful Rocky Mountains. Albertans are open and friendly people, and the community is safe and close-knit. For those who love driving, pack up and head over the Rockies to our west coast neighbor British Columbia or even the NE United States and if you're really adventurous, Canada's North or Alaska! Of course, flying might be your preference - luckily we are 45 min from the airport and I can arrange rides for you, to and from the airport, if needed. Of course, there are many things to do right here - a 3 hour drive will take you to desert badlands in the south, beautiful craggy mountains in the west, dense boreal forest in the north, and wide unending prairies to the east. You can choose city experiences, like concerts, cultural festivals, and fine dining, or you can choose to take a picnic lunch and explore the countryside, local lakes, and welcoming farms. Our short, precious summer is jam-packed with community events, so you''ll never lack for things to do!
