Central Alberta

I know the selection is "Red Deer" but I'm also gonna dabble on the other places around Red Deer and in Central Alberta.

<Center><b>Red Deer</b></Center>

Red Deer is about an hour or an hour and a half South of Edmonton. There's not really much to do in Red Deer but it is a nice lil city that you can take a short lil detour if you're driving from Edmonton to Calgary or vice versa. But like some VT member already mentioned, it's not exactly a tourist attraction.

<Center><b>Sylvan Lake</b></center>

Sylvan Lake is a nice lil spot approximately 20-30 mins West of Red Deer. Termed a "beach resort" (it's actually a lake), there's camping and other activites happening at the lake.


About 1.5 hrs Northeast of Calgary sits Drumheller. Made up of badlands, hoodoos, canyons and coulees, the area provides vast terrains of discovery.
