Travel website Expedia.ca recently released its list of the top 20 friendliest Canadian cities and towns, and the Town of Drumheller was ranked fifth friendliest town in the country.
Expedia used traveller reviews which associated the words “friendly,” “friendliest,” and “amiable,” among others used between January 2019 and December 2020 to narrow down the list.
“It is an honour for Drumheller to be recognized as number five in the top 20 friendliest communities in Canada, and number one in Alberta,” says Drumheller Mayor Heather Colberg. “All the credit goes to the businesses and residents of our valley. It is great to see a major facet of our community visitation come to fruition, which is ‘To be the cleanest, friendliest, most sought after community in Alberta.’ Thank you again to the people of this great valley!”
While Drumheller was ranked fifth friendliest town in Canada, it was ranked as the number one friendliest town in Alberta with only two other Alberta towns making the list—Banff at number nine and Canmore at number 18.
Radium Hot Springs in B.C. was named the friendliest town in Canada.
