In northern Alberta, about 275 miles northeast of Edmonton is a well-known city called Grande Prairie, Alberta. The city is surrounded by rolling hills of farmland to the north and heavily wooded areas to the south. This area is also known as the “foothills” as immediately west is the rocky mountains. Grande Prairie is filled with Malls and Park as well as, Restaurants and obviously some local attractions. Definitely, a place to check out if driving through northern Alberta.
