Introducing South of Edmonton
Located halfway between Edmonton and Calgary on Hwy 2 is Red Deer. This growing community boasts an agricultural heritage and benefits from its proximity to the two major centers. Beyond being a rest stop and an all-else-fails place to stay during the tourist season, there is very little for the traveler here. Red Deer is about 1½ hours away from either city, and accommodations will not be as tight nor as expensive. For more information, contact the Red Deer Visitor & Convention Bureau, or just drive through the city where you'll have your pick of chain establishments.
