Entertain yourself! You have to get creative in a capital city that does not have a movie theater, ice cream shop, coffee shop, bowling, batting cage all the things you don't normally care about but suddenly will miss! You can hike to the top of Three Sisters for a view of the city, you can drive to the dunes (really 1 or 2 sand mounds but that's the dunes) for amazing photography opportunities, go 2.5 hours south to EcoLodge and Parc W, and get brave and try restaurants not judging by the exterior - get out there and explore but always with someone. - Aug 2015
