In the rolling hillside between the prairie and Rocky Mountains of southwest Alberta is a pretty town that wins visitors over with its beauty, history, and pioneering spirit.
Located centrally between Waterton Lakes National Park and Glacier National Park in Montana, Cardston is one of those rare places on the map that doesn’t need to be commercial or flashy to be worthy of a visit. The landscape alone in this quiet and historic town is enough reason to stop by. Majestic snow capped mountains grace the horizon, appearing so close it almost seems you could reach out and touch them. But there is a lot more to Cardston than meets the eye. Hundreds of years of cultural, religious, and municipal history are kept alive and celebrated here, showcased in a number of attractions, both well established and new.
