Things to See and Do in Red Deer

Red Deer is midway between Calgary and Edmonton, so travelling to either city is easy. Red Deer is home to the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame & Museum, which celebrates athletic achievements by provincial athletes through interactive exhibits and memorabilia. An entire section is devoted to winter sports such as luge, and another gallery focuses on hockey. Visitors learn fun facts. For example, Edmonton Eskimos player Jackie Parker's nickname was "Ol' Spaghetti Legs" and Christine Nordhagen is a pioneer of women's wrestling.

The Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery has an extensive collection of First Nations artwork. Visitors should allow up to two hours to fully experience the exhibits.

Red Deer has more than 100 kilometres of nature trails in the city limits. Alberta's first federal migratory bird sanctuary is here, and visitors can enjoy both downtown and the great outdoors. They can hike, run, or ski the trails, and take in other outdoor activities such as skydiving and marathons. Agritourism is also popular for those who want the authentic farm experience.

The Danish Canadian Museum features the history of Danish immigrants to Canada, going back to the Viking era and exploring the pioneer days with a cabin and church. Visitors can sample Danish food served by costumed interpreters in the Saga Cafe. There are several hectares of Danish gardens to see, including a children's garden. The museum has more than 5,000 artefacts.

One of Alberta's main crops is malt barley, so a visit to the Troubled Monk Brewery allows guests to learn about Alberta's beer industry. Tours are available, and the microbrewery sells growlers and kegs. Troubled Monk Brewery won a silver medal in the World Beer Cup's American Brown Ale category; the winning brew was the Open Road Brown Ale.

Skyscanner is a valuable tool for exploring Red Deer. Visitors to this Canadian hidden gem can book flights, hotels, and rental cars there.
