“You Have To Stop HERE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2011

I really didn't know what to expect when we passed through Grande Cache. Living all my life in BC, I AM a scenery snob and really didn't have high hopes for ALBERTA!! I certainly wasn't prepared for just how breathtakingly beautiful Grande Cache is! AND I've stopped at a lot of tourism centres over the years; mostly for the bathrooms ;-) but Grande Cache's Tourism Centre is a MUST see! It's awesome! So much to look at! Our visit happened to coincide with a children's summer program on Spiders which my daughter was allowed to join in - gave us a chance to explore the grounds surrounding the centre (nice spot for a picnic!) and then back to the Centre to a meeting room they have upstairs so the kids could do a craft. And the write up didn't mention all the great stuff to buy in the gift shop. Jump start on my Christmas Shopping!
