The Prairies are Canada's breadbasket, three geometrically-shaped provinces which in addition to the wide-open expanses of flat prairie land also collectively include mountains, hills, lakes, shoreline, and metropolitan cities.
The Prairie provinces
Alberta Rolling hills, lush prairie, graceful mountains, bustling cities, lovely economy, untapped natural beauty
Saskatchewan Rolling hills, beautiful water systems, gleaming parks, shiny cities
Manitoba History, heritage-full, farming, hydroelectricity, large lakes, beautiful wilderness areas, "watchable" wildlife and rolling hills, woodlands and many lakes in its western highlands.
Edmonton (1,102,000) - Largest mall W of Asia and Canada's largest historic park are two of the big attractions. It also has a lush river valley which is the largest parkland area in North America and is dubbed Canada's festival city. Aside from that, it has a good science centre, cool history, nice architecture, the fastest growing international airport, and exquisite up and coming and already there urban neighbourhoods. It is the capital of Alberta.
Calgary (1,139,000) - this city is a fast growing city with world class Calgary Stampede and one of the biggest international airports in Canada. It is a product of oil culture, meaning, without the big oil boom in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, Calgary would have half the population. It has a lush river and is close to the mountains. It knows how to get out and doo activities.
Winnipeg (750,000) - the historic and cultural capital of the prairies. Those interested in architecture, art, museums, and culture would do well in Winnipeg. Also home to the largest French-speaking community outside of Quebec.
