Dry, flat prairie wheat fields in the east of this region gradually rise to soft hills and pine forests as you head west toward the Rocky Mountains. Cities and varied sights in the southern part of the province offer a look at key elements of Alberta's history. You can study the world of the dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller; learn about the role of the locals, settlers, and the North West Mounted Police in Fort Macleod; and explore prosperous, modern Medicine Hat.
