If you live in Sylvan Lake, take advantage or the proximity to major metropolitan centers such as Calgary and Edmonton that are only two hours from town. Sylvan Lake is the perfect location. Though we have most of what you’ll need in town, taking a trip to the big cities can be a nice change of pace. Edmonton attractions such as the West Edmonton Mall and the Royal Alberta Museum are a great way to pass a day with your family. Want to do something historically educational? Check out Fort Edmonton Park! There are so many options when you are only a two hour drive away.
Calgary has just as many exciting attractions as Edmonton including the Heritage Park Historical Village where you can relive the age of the European settlers in a fun, educational and interactive manner. Make sure to visit the Calgary Zoo and check out the incredible animals they have.
Seasonal events such as the Calgary Stampede are a fantastic time to visit the mid-west. Take a drive down to the rodeo and come home to Sylvan Lake after a long day for a nice relaxing meal at one of our town’s exquisite restaurants.
Take advantage of all that being so close to everything has to offer. Sylvan Lake is such a convenient place to live or vacation due to its location half way between Alberta’s biggest cities.
If you live in either major city, take a weekend trip to Sylvan Lake and experience what our town is really all about.
