4. Montrose Cultural Centre

This contemporary (and eco-friendly!) cultural hub – home to the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie and the Grande Prairie Public Library – is the perfect interior to capture content on rainy days, or really any time of the year!

5. Kakwa Falls

Need we say much more about this stunning backdrop? It’s a coveted photo subject, but a tricky one at that, as Kakwa Falls is only accessible by foot, riverboat, or ATV.

6. Dunvegan Bridge

Holding the record for Alberta’s longest suspension bridge, Dunvegan Bridge was built in 1960 and is a little gateway back into that era of Canadiana. The bridge offers a majestic photo op year-round, and can be found by driving north past Rycroft towards Fairview.

7. Saskatoon Mountain

Catch a glimpse of the distant Rocky Mountains from the slopes of the slightly less mountainous Saskatoon mountain. This provincial recreation area was once the site of a military radar base and offers magnificent views of the surrounding landscapes in every direction.

8. Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum

If dramatic architectural backgrounds are your thing, look no further. The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum was designed to resemble the skeleton of a giant reptile – fitting, as it sits on top of one of the world’s densest fossil sites, the River of Death bone bed at Pipestone Creek.
