Along the banks of the Red Deer River lies the small, quaint town of Drumheller, sometimes known as the Dinosaur Capital of the World due to the vast amounts of fossils found in the valleys. The town itself is charming and historic, with small, independent museums, and a friendly, laidback vibe.

The kids love it, and you get a great view of the surrounding green hills. Drumheller Reptile World has creatures that you can see up close. From crocodiles to snakes, and there are talks and events where you can try holding the friendlier reptiles.

You’ll also see plenty of unusual dolls, as well as celebrity and movie inspired dolls. Drumheller Homestead Pioneer Museum has artifacts from the early days of the town’s founding, from spinning wheels to period clothing in a small, independent museum. During the summer months, the out of town amphitheater hosts the Canadian Badlands Passion Play. Set amongst the rocky landscape, the play uses natural scenery to give it an authentic historic feel.
