From Brooks, the well-known city of Calgary is approximately 100 miles (161 kilometers) to the west.
From major tourist drawcards to lesser known nooks and crannies, Southern Alberta is wonderfully endowed with fabulous attractions. You may also wish to check out Taber, 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the north, and Vulcan 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the east.
If you're on the lookout for things to see that won't break the bank, take a tour of Southern Alberta's many outdoor cultural attractions such as open-air markets, open-air exhibits and open-air museums.
Sometimes, one of the most effective ways to truly dig below the veneer of a destination is by hiring local guides. The Southern Alberta offers a range of city walking tours, wildlife spotting tours and guided nature walks. Pack your gear or rent some when you get here, and discover the local water activities. Boating is one option. Another option is sailing.
Canada Day is held on the 1st of July, so if your visit coincides, set aside your sightseeing and spend the day celebrating with locals.
There is a saying, the world is a book and those that don't travel read the same page. So get out and make the most of the beauty and adventures that await in Brooks.
