I haven't gotten many responses from a question posted in the Canada forum, so let's try you TRAVEL folks!

I'll be taking a road trip between Winnipeg, MB and Banff, AL between July 2 and July 8th.

I'm the kind of traveler who enjoys historic sites, museums, and gentle hikes of no more than 4 miles or so. I don't mind a night or two of camping. I'm not so much a city person except for visiting some really good museums.

What should I see and do in the Winnipeg area? Western MB?

What should I see and do across central Saskatchewan?

What should I see and do in Alberta before I get to Banff/Calgary (where I'm doing a Roads Scholar program)? Is Edmonton a must see, or should I skip it for more scenic places?

On the way back, I'll be driving from Calgary to my next stop, Medora ND. Since I've already driven Hwy 2 in Montana and ND just a few years ago, I kind of want to stay in AB and SK until I drop down towards Medora (probably on 85).

So, what should I see and do in southern AB and SK on the way back?

I really don't want to hear from folks who only want to say "it's flat out there". What does that have to do with anything?

Thanks in advance!

It's REALLY flat out there...

I can't really speak to MB, because I just don't have that much experience there.

Saskatchewan - Regina, you can tour RCMP Depot, which is where all Mounties are trained, Wascana Lake is nice in the city.

As you head west, Grasslands National Park https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/sk/grasslands/

Sand Hills Provincial Park https://greatsouthwest.ca/great-sandhills/

Cypress Hills

Alberta -

Dinosaur Provincial Park by Brooks https://www.travelalberta.com/us/pla...FRQZgQod8x4L5A

Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump UNESCO site https://www.travelalberta.com/us/lis...FQgDgQodJvYHcg

I'd skip Edmonton unless you have a need to go there, or Fringe is on.

Heading back I'd make sure to see Frank Slide, Waterton National Park, and there's a ton of historical sites and towns dotted across the prairies.
