Edmonton to Morinville to Westlock to Edmonton

Your first stop will be an interesting visit to the grounds of the St. Jean Baptiste Parish in Morinville, the heart of the local French Catholic community.  Surrounded by parklands and informative signage, the 1907 built church and original Convent beside it speak volumes to the faith of the early settlers to the district.  Continuing on, we head into Westlock County, located on the Alberta Plain astride the divide between the Athabasca and North Saskatchewan River systems.

The Canadian Tractor Museum, considered by many to be the best agricultural implement museum in Canada, will be your main morning stop.  You will be fascinated by the many restored antique tractors, but don’t forget to see the world’s tallest functioning weathervane while you are there!  After your included lunch, visit the Westlock Pioneer Museum – a stunning collection showcasing pioneer life in the area.  From Aladdin lamps, to guns, to sound machines, Kewpie Dolls and so much more, there are lots of things here to pique anyone’s interest.

Complete your relaxing day in the country by returning to Edmonton via a different scenic route through the Alberta Plain to arrive approximately 5:00 p.m.

THERE IS PLENTY OF STORAGE SPACE UNDER YOUR MOTORCOACH FOR THOSE EXTRA PURCHASES!  YOU ARE WELCOME TO BRING A SMALL COOLER BAG.
