Head 40 minutes south of Edmonton to the City of Wetaskiwin to start your Highway 13 roadtrip into East Central Alberta. While getting the name right may take a while (pronounced Weh-task-awin), feeling at home here sure doesn't. A small city of nearly 13,000 residents, Wetaskiwin offers visitors a beautiful mix of modern amenities, shops, and cozy, small-town comfort.

ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS The Reynolds-Alberta Museum is a must see for car enthusiasts, especially June 8-9 during History Road – The Ultimate Car Show. Nearby is Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame where you will be inspired to reach for the skies. Stroll through the three floors of unique displays and interactive exhibits at the Wetaskiwin & District Heritage Museum.

OUTDOORS Feeling adventurous? Take a rip in a race car this summer at the Edmonton International Raceway (located just outside of Wetaskiwin). Did you know? Wetaskiwin is home to two superb golf courses, with seven others within a 35-minute drive. Explore the 2 km paved trail system at By-The-Lake Park, or enjoy a game of disc golf at the 18-hole course at Peace Hills Park. Playgrounds and green spaces abound in Wetaskiwin, making it easy to enjoy the great outdoors with your family. The Wetaskiwin Recreation Grounds is usually humming with activity, and features a tennis/pickleball court, horseshoe pits, skate park and football field.
