乐天的静This is my favorite place of all places in Edmonton. The regular day pass is a bit expensive, so I usually buy it when I find discounted tickets or when there are special events, but there will be a good experience here, with my family or young children (it should not be 2 Children under the age of) or find a lot of fun here with friends. The best part here is (at least for me), you can enjoy the beach type weather even if it is snowing outside and the temperature is minus 30 degrees Celsius! !
_GG***98This is really a nice park in the city. It is very accessible since the train stops here. They have various animals including pandas,penguins,bears,cougars etc. It is quite tiring since it has a large area but it's worth a visit.
KlesisDidn’t get a chance to go up as we wanted to spend our money elsewhere like checking out the museums and dining at Top 100 restaurants in Canada located in Calgary; nonetheless, we still snapped a couple photos of this iconic tower
GLS***72If I could I'd give this a 6 out of 5. Truly amazing and my family all loved it. Right from the vintage cars at the gate this place enthrals. The volunteers in the historic roles all were wonderful, especially the saloon keeper and the fort trader. I learnt so much of the history of Alberta and Canada. Plenty to see, we spent 4 hrs and could have stayed longer. Also all the rides come included in the entry price and good value for money.
GLS***35Beautiful park right on the river, Princess Island hosts many festivals such as the Calgary Folk Music Festival, Shakespeare in the Park, Carifest, Canada Celebrations, Heritage day Celebrations, Afrikadey, Expo Latino, and Barbecue on the Bow
乐天的静If you are in Edmonton or have never been, this is an absolutely "not to be missed" place. There are many historical relics here, there are many things that the whole family can do together, and the price is very close to the people. It is highly recommended to those who want to go back in one day.
We travelled to Jasper National Park in Canada in around end September to catch the Autumn colours, and hike a few of the mountains. We were pleasantly surprised to catch glimpses of wildlife too.
Jasper is the largest of all the Canadian Rockies national parks, which spans approximately 11,000 sq km (4,247 sq mi) from just south of Grande Cache to the northern edge of Banff National Park. To get to Jasper, we flew to Vancouver, rented a car and drove to Banff before arriving at Jasper (we wanted to explore both parks). While Banff is more popular, Jasper is more scenic and beautiful, and because it is relatively quieter, chances of spotting wildlife such as bears, goats, elk and bighorn sheep is much higher. Jasper is also the home to some incredible features, such as Mount Columbia (Alberta's tallest mountain) and Maligne Lake (second-largest glacial-fed lake in the world). It is surrounded by snow-capped mountains.
There are so much which one can do in Jasper such as hiking, biking, camping, fishing or simply driving/walking around to enjoy the beautiful scenery and spot for wildlife.
Lake Louise is a glacial lake within Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. It is located 5 km west of the Hamlet of Lake Louise and the Trans-Canada Highway. Lake Louise is named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and the wife of the Marquess of Lorne, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883. The turquoise colour of the water comes from rock flour carried into the lake by melt-water from the glaciers that overlook the lake. The lake has a surface of 0.8 km2 (0.31 sq mi) and is drained through the 3 km long Louise Creek into the Bow River.
Canadian Rockies, segment of the Rocky Mountains, extending southeastward for about 1,000 miles (1,600 km) from northern British Columbia, Canada, and forming nearly half the 900-mile (1,500-km) border between the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. The Mackenzie and Selwyn mountains farther north along the border between the Northwest and Yukon territories are often included in the Canadian Rockies. To the west, the Rocky Mountain Trench (a geologic depression) separates the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies from the Columbia Mountains, which include the Cariboo, Selkirk, Monashee, and Purcell mountains and are also often considered part of the Rocky Mountain system.
About 50 peaks in the Canadian Rockies surpass 11,000 feet (3,350 metres). Mount Robson (12,972 feet [3,954 metres]) in British Columbia is the highest. Others include Mount Joffre (the first glacier-hung peak north of the U.S. border), Mount Assiniboine (the “Matterhorn of the Rockies”), Mount Columbia (12,294 feet [3,747 metres]; Alberta’s highest point), and Mount Forbes. Spectacular alpine scenery is found in Banff, Jasper, and Waterton lakes national parks on the eastern slopes in Alberta and in the Kootenay and Yoho national parks on the western slopes in British Columbia. The Canadian Rockies are the source of many headstreams, notably of the Kootenay, Columbia, Fraser, Peace, Liard, Athabaska, and Saskatchewan rivers.
Important rail and highway passes include Yellowhead, Crowsnest, and Kicking Horse; the latter, selected in the 1880s as the route for the transcontinental Canadian Pacific Railway, is now also used by the Trans-Canada Highway.

Well what can I say from this very nice place, good atmosphere and decent food. However, what separates the good from the bad is the service. Best service I have ever had in my life. It's life changing! Make the good fantastic! And what's special for me is that I get attention and fun for me from this experience makes me so much better! Funny how things get better with good service. Overall I recommend, but I can't guarantee that it will be that good. What makes the overall experience great. . . really ours. And sometimes that's all you need to enjoy your dining experience.
Known as the dinosaur capital of the world, Drumheller is located in the heart of the Canadian Badlands. In the late 1800’s, while searching for coal amidst the rolling coulees near the Red Deer River, a dinosaur skull was found. Visit the Royal Tyrrell museum to see a wide variety of dinosaur and fossil exhibits, or visit the Atlas Coal Mine, a National Historic Site.

This city just has something about it that always drags me back. It is just so interesting to visit all the museum's,art exhibits and just walk around this city. It has its own magic to it for being as large as it is.
We found this place by accident. You know when you are starving already and you are searching for a place where you can park your van but stumbled in these beauty. And then we forgot we need to eat ha!
