Nestled on the eastern edge of the Canadian Rockies, Stoney Nakoda Resort is both an inviting respite for folks driving between Calgary and Banff, and a travel destination in itself. Here, the Alberta Rockies’ only casino offers Vegas-style gaming while the 111 room hotel boasts an indoor waterpark and meeting facilities. Dining options include The Ridge Buffet (try a prime rib dinner or gourmet Sunday brunch), Peaks Café and Sidelines Lounge with sports on a huge drop-down screen and five plasmas. Watch for live entertainment and dinner shows at the Chill Showroom and take a Kananaskis Helicopter Tour over impressive 2800 m (9200 ft) mountains that rise from prairie flats. Nearby are outdoor adventures that draw travellers from around the world such as golfing, rafting, hiking, biking, horseback riding and skiing.
