Cochrane is noted for its western heritage, unique buildings, and very popular Main Street, as well as its small-town hospitality. Cochrane has become a popular tourist attraction for many, with the inclusions of the Cochrane Ranche, McKay's world famous Ice Cream. In the recent Years, Cochrane has expanded significantly with the addition of the Quarry, offering many new Big box stores and amenities which used to only be accessible by driving to Calgary.
Only 20 minutes from Calgary and less than an hour from Banff, with spectacular vistas of the rolling foothills and majestic Rocky Mountains, Cochrane combines a proud western heritage with all the modern conveniences of city living.
