  • Christopher Lake

    Christopher Lake in Pince Albert National Park is a 'get-away' people come to to enjoy the weather, the view and sailing their boats.This area of the National Park doesn't cost anything to get to or to sail your boat.I was taken by how big it is. It's lined with trees and some holiday cabins. The water is very clear and clean. There are areas...

  • Prince Albert National Park

    Prince Albert National Park is huge. There are villages and holiday/vacation areas within the National park (I've written a review of Waskesiu which is a holiday/vacation village). Driving through, taking the 'scenic' routes were beautiful. The colours of the trees, the rivers and lakes, the wildlife and the calm were a delight to my eyes.Going...

  • Galaxy Cinema

    Have a taste of what a Canadian cinema is like and visit Galaxy. Admission is under $10 and is cheaper for children and seniors.Galaxy shows up to date films and you can buy snacks and drinks in the cinema too.Great idea for a chilled night out or to spend some time when the weather is not so great.

  • The Northern Lights Casino

    The casino is the place to be when the weather is bad and you can't travel far. I was so surprised how busy it was during the day. We went twice, once I won, the other I lost! But hey ho, I won a lot more than I lost!!!My Uncle and Auntie took us. We signed up as new members for free and got a booklet withvouchers in. 1. $5 off a meal in the casino...

  • Prince Albert Historical Museum

    Again the College kids here were so knowledgeable it made this museum come alive. Located on the river at the end of central avenue in Downtown.

  • Evolution of Education Museum

    This building was right next to the police & corrections museum, lots to see and experience in such a small place.

  • Police and corrections Museum

    The prisoners actually hated this device worse than the cat o 9 tails rack. It is the Paddle table, a prisoners was bent over the table tied down and pants pulled down, the spanked with a leather paddle with hole in it theat would leave welt on the prisoner not alowing him to sit for a week. Used into the mid 1960's.

  • Police & Corrections Museum

    This rack was used until the mid 1960's. The prisoners were straped to this rack when they entered the correctional facility and whipped with a cat o 9 tails and when they had served there time and were ready to be release they were put back on the rack and whipped again just so they remembered what jail was all about...Ouch!!

Prince Albert Restaurants

  • Visit Smitty's in South Hill Mall

    What I really enjoyed here was the warm and friendly welcome. The staff were all so attentive and served you with a smile.The restaurant is spacious with an option of places to sit; by the fire, by the windows (overlooking the car park), in the middle or along a bar.The menu is good. There is a choice of fish dishes, chicken dishes, liver & onions...

  • Good sized portions!

    My Uncle and Auntie took us here for a treat to celebrate my Auntie's birthday. There is lots of choice on the menu, mainly Italian dishes along with burgers, fish dishes, steaks and chicken dishes.There are televisions around the restaurant (which we were able to watch out beloved Manchester City on), and sports memorabilia hung on the walls.We...

  • Casino buffett = BAD

    The sign out fron listed so many items we thought the buffett was going to be 100ft long, It turned out to be food Old Country Buffett would of been embarrassed to serve. The buffett was about 15ft. Don't go. $12.95.


Prince Albert Nightlife

  • The only pub in PA!

    My family and I went here twice; once in the afternoon, and again for a night. It's a big pub with plenty of tables to sit at. There is a separate room if you are just dining if you prefer to sit there.You can watch all of the big sports matches here. It boasts the largest HD screen in Prince Albert.The owner of The Brew Pub brews his own larger...

  • JT'S

    This seemed like the place to be, there was a great bar downstairs and a comedian was upstairs...lots of people and fun. The are also known for there ribbs here. When the waitress came to our table she said to me "You must not be from around here" I asked how she new that. she said " she had never seen someone wear a pressed shirt in the bar...

  • Bugsy's Bar/Grille

    Captain Cokes were $4.50 and Beers were $3.00, clean and had lots of tv's...the food looked really good but we had just eaten at the casino buffett (Don't eat at the casino).


Prince Albert Transportation

  • Trucks

    Just so you know, in my reviews/tips when I talk about a truck, the picture above is what I mean! There are cars, but mainly trucks on the roads.Also there are interesting road signs; that quick frankly, made me chuckle!!

  • Flying at 30,000 feet above...

    Flying at 30,000 feet above the northern end of the huge expanse of Lake Winnipeg. You can see this large curved bay on most maps! We were flying in to Kasba Lake, NWT from Winnipeg for 4 days of prime fishing

Prince Albert Shopping

  • The TXMaxx of Canada!

    I would liken Winners to TXMaxx. It has clothes, furniture, homewear, shoes, books, beauty products, Halloween dressing up outfits (I assume this is only at this time of year?), accessories and jewellery. It's a shop you have to rummage through, but when you find that bargin you're looking for, it's so worth it!! Anything that takes your...

  • Visit the Mall!

    The Mall has different shops catering for different tastes and needs. There are clothes shops, beauty shops, sports shops, $1 shops, furniture shops, shoe shops and a food court.It's not a big Mall but shopping is shopping! I enjoyed the time I spent here mooching around the shops!The opening hours are:Monday - Wednesday 10am - 6pmThursday 10am -...

  • Shopping for art

    The photographs are of the original paintings by Native artists.The first photograph is of a set of three paintings to create a full scene. This scene really interested me and I was constantly looking at it and discovering different parts to it all of the time. The scene is of the inside a teepee; a family sat inside and the view of the setting sun...


Prince Albert Local Customs

  • Pow Wow

    We were very lucky to share in this Native tradition in Prince Albert. As my Auntie is a Native from the Cree tribe, she goes every year to show her support and watch her Grandchildren dance.Everybody participating in the Pow Wow dress in traditional (sometimes exaggerated I'm told) clothes. They are all handmade, colourful and the bead-work very...

  • In a Canadian home

    Just a quick tip!When entering a Canadian home, take your shoes off and leave them by the door (on the inside) unless your are directed to put them into a closet nearby.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Walk-in clinics

    Favorite thing: It's handy to know that throughout Canada there are walk-in clinics.
    Travel insurance including medical insurance will cover costs.
