Not only will you enjoy an awesome experience, but some pretty amazing deals, too!
VisitLethbridge.com is encouraging Central Albertans to hit Highway 2 for a trip south and rediscover some of the many possibilities the region has to offer.

“The hotel and restaurant industries have been particularly hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. As an industry that contributes greatly to the local community, this program is offered to help both business and Albertans” says Sacha Johnson, president of the Lethbridge Lodging Association, commonly known as VisitLethbridge.com.
“Visitors to Lethbridge enjoy the iconic architecture of the High Level Bridge, the peace provided in Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden or our culture and history at the Galt Museum & Archives” says Sacha Johnson, president of the Lethbridge Lodging Association, commonly known as VisitLethbridge.com. “We have stunning views of the coulee landscapes and families can learn about our First Nations heritage as we are located on the traditional Blackfoot Territory. Our downtown is filled with culture, arts, unique shopping, and farm to table dining. Lethbridge has so much to offer … an urban nature reserve, more than 130 parks, and walking, hiking and biking trails throughout the city, making Lethbridge uniquely enjoyable.” Johnson notes.
