The drive from Lacombe to Alix is beautiful and to say the least the scenery along the way is gorgeous! Our first stop was the Alix Wheel Wagon Museum, here we got to tour the museum and learn a vast amount of Alix’s history. The staff of the museum were so wonderful and informative, they showed us various exhibits showcasing life as a pioneer, the history of Alix, wildlife of Central Alberta, and much more. We were surprised at how big the museum was, just when we thought we had come to the end of the museum there was more interesting and intriguing things to see.
Our favourite exhibit was the sports exhibit, it contains uniforms, sports equipment and trophies from decades of Alix sports teams.
Stop by anytime from 10am-5pm, Tuesday through Saturday and say hi to the wonderful staff. Admission is by donation!
Our next stop was Alix Lake even though the day was a bit gloomy, the lake was beautiful and so peaceful. At the lake there is as an 11 site campground, day use area, playground, swimming area, concession, and calm waters for water-ski and wake board enthusiasts!
After roaming around the lake for a while, we got quite hungry, so our next stop was The Pantry. This is a quaint little café which is home of Sweet Crumbs Cakery, is also a local cake and pastry shop. They had so many options for lunch, from soups and salads, sandwich’s and specialty drinks. Everything looked so amazing!
It was pretty busy when we first got there, but the staff were fast and efficient and the food was delicious! We had the Strawberry Spinach Salad with chicken, the Chicken Bacon Swiss Melt and we both got the Italian Peach Soda.
Before we headed back to the office, we stopped once again at the Pantry to get one of their famous cinnamon buns. The cinnamon buns were warm, soft and so delicious!
There are so many things to do and see in Alix, we had such a great time on our daytrip! We’d love to hear about your visit to Alix, share with us on Facebook or Twitter!
