Alberta is the second westernmost of the 10 provinces in Canada (only British Columbia is farther west). It includes parts of the Canadian Rockies and is known for its oil and natural gas fields and cattle farming.
Alberta has a lot to offer visitors. It is a surprisingly diverse province in many ways, from the beauty of the Rockies to the serene flatness of prairie to the wilderness of the northern forests. The two largest cities, Calgary and Edmonton, offer the amenities that most cities in North America have and also have some unique attractions of their own.
