Canadians are being encouraged to add Red Deer and other “hidden gems” in central Alberta to their 2023 travel bucket list.
The non-profit group Go RVing Canada wants to ignite an interest in more domestic travel by spotlighting this nation’s unique landscapes. And they don’t come much more diverse than when badlands transform into Prairies and eventually into mountain foothills.
The website’s suggested trip itinerary for next spring and summer recommends crossing into Alberta from Saskatchewan, with a first stop at the other worldly Horseshoe Canyon, which has exposed rock that yields fossils going back 70 million years.
After a stop in Drumheller, with its hoodoos and dinosaur attractions, Red Deer is a recommended place to explore and restock on supplies. This central Alberta city was noted by Go RVing Canada for its many conveniences, as well as our scenic Red Deer River banks and Red Deer’s Waskasoo Parks system — with more than 110 km of trails and “stunning nature views.”
Sylvan Lake’s beaches are the next tour stop — with a final destination of Crescent Falls, off the David Thompson Highway between Abraham Lake and Nordegg. This two-tier waterfall is described as a “must-see” on Canada’s list of beautiful landscapes, with surrounding “indescribable views” that must be seen to be believed.
