Welcome to Lethbridge!

Alberta's southernmost city, Lethbridge's most magnificent characteristic is its coulees—a network of large rolling hills that were formed by glacial spill water over ten thousand years ago. Sitting on a hillside, the University of Lethbridge is a unique building that appears to emerge out of this landscape. Crossing the coulees and the city's river source, the Old Man River, is the world's largest High Level Bridge—an impressive structure at 314 feet. The area's rich history can be explored at Fort Whoop Up and the Sir Alexander Galt Museum. During the Second World War, Japanese Canadians were forcibly relocated from the west coast to the Lethbridge area where they were made to work as farm labourers. This accounts for a strong Japanese cultural presence today, a fine example being the impressive Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden. Also standing as a symbol for amends now made, the garden's name means Japanese and Canadian friendship. The WorldWeb.com Travel Guides for Waterton, Fort Macleod and Fernie offer information for nearby destinations. Visitors like to stay a while to explore the area and in response, there is a good selection of Lethbridge hotels and motels to choose from.
