About Longview

Longview is a quaint little stop along the Cowboy Trail that lives up to its name. The town once known as 'Little New York' is the most direct gateway to the Kananaskis Provincial Park and offers galleries, gourmet dining, one of a kind events, a family friendly campground, and views for days.

Home to Alberta's strong ranching heritage, you’ll find the historic Bar-U Ranch just south of town, as well as history pieces throughout our eateries and galleries. Speaking of food, from a world famous steakhouse and jerky to the history of the Twin Cities Hotel or the flair of New Little New York Bistro, Longview offers options no matter your taste or budget.
