Explore Medicine Hat

This Prairie oasis truly has it all: Culture and history, family activities, golf, great shopping, and plenty of great restaurants just footsteps away from our Medicine Hat accommodations.

We’re one of the best hotels in Medicine Hat for visitors who want to take a bite of Canada's rich history. From cultural artifacts to beautiful riverside parks, guests can easily access many of the top Medicine Hat tourism attractions.

Learn. Experience. See. Play.

Some of the most beautiful—and free—places to explore the coulee landscape are in the riverside parks. The 300-acre Police Point Park is every nature lover’s dream with dozens of trails, including shale paths along the river, and learning opportunities at its Interpretive Centre. On the other side of the South Saskatchewan River, you’ll find Strathcona Island Park, a water playground perfect for cooling off the little ones. After meandering the shaded trails in these parks, entertainment for the young continues with the Windmill Garden Centre & Butterfly House, home to exotic butterflies, birds, fish & turtles.

If you want to learn a little more about how this city came to be, visit the Medicine Hat Tourism Centre and stand under the World’s Tallest Teepee which was designed for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. For a living museum experience, visit the 150- acre Medicine Hat Clay Industries National Historic District and learn how the Medicine Hat's clay-products industry came about through collections, exhibits, interpretation, guided tours, and educational and artistic programs. Most notable are the Medalta Potteries and Hycroft China factory complexes.

Enjoy a relaxing round of golf in the breathtaking river valley landscape at Medicine Hat Golf & Country Club, Cottonwood Coulee Golf Course or the links-style course at Desert Blume. Or if engines are more your thing, the Medicine Hat Drag Racing Association ¼ length track is located just off the Trans Canada Hwy and is home to the NHRA National Open.
