Start your day at one of the most unique landscapes in Canada and head out for a brief stroll. For the history buff in the car, we also included a seasonal museum as a bonus. Drive time to your second stop is 30 minutes.
Be wowed with expansive lookouts, stretch your legs and get your camera ready! Drive time to your third stop is 15 minutes.
Surely you have worked up an appetite by now. Pop into town and enjoy local roasters, un petit bistro, a funky brewery or a happening burger joint. We've also recommended a couple of our favourite up-and-coming shops. Drive time to your fourth stop is 25 minutes.
To end this surprise road trip adventure we're sending you to a few hidden (and maybe eerie) gems. If you want to keep going we have also included one last picturesque trail.

I am from Ontario and decided to do this trip while I was visiting Calgary. Getting to roam around former booming towns that have since been abandoned was BEYOND cool. I am also not used to the type of landscape here, so I was in awe the entire trip.
I would say the second stop was my fave between the viewpoints and the fun little photo op.
