Red Deer Tourism & Travel Guide
Welcome to Red Deer!
Conveniently located directly between Calgary and Edmonton, Red Deer combines the convenience of urban amenities with the quaintness of a rural life. When in Red Deer don't miss historic Heritage Square and Fort Normandeau. Both sites showcase Red Deer's frontier roots and are portals to the past. The Red Deer and District Museum also contains some impressive exhibits and artifacts. The interesting architecture of St. Mary's Church and beautiful Waskasoo Park round off a list of interesting sites and attractions. Red Deer is in lake country and two nearby lakes of note are Sylvan Lake and Gull Lake. Both of these lakes offer excellent boating opportunities and are often bustling with activity during the warm, dry summer. Red Deer and the surrounding area are also home to a myriad of local shops, restaurants and cafes, which all add to the personality of the area. A wide variety of Red Deer hotels and motels are available for those looking to stay a while.
