Alberta

Canada's never been as united as it appears. Albertans see themselves as different and don't always get along with the rest of the country. If you can get past the cowboy redneck stereotypes, it's a beautiful province with lots of interesting architecture, festivals, and scenery. People call Alberta the Texas of Canada, with the exception that it doesn't snow seven months a year in Texas.

If You Go
It's hard for me to be objective about my home province, but I think Alberta's a fun place to visit in summer. The big cities can be expensive, but you're not nearing B.C. prices. There's mountains, plains, lakes, dinosaur bones, and big cities. Edmonton has tons of cool festivals. I wouldn't go in winter unless all you want to do is ski. May to October are when it's pleasant enough to be outside.
