Adventure Awaits in Calgary – So much more than the Stampede and Flames!

Family adventure in Calgary? Sure, if you plan on going to the Stampede or a hockey game, right? No really, after travelling to Calgary to visit family my whole life, I considered myself somewhat a local. (Although their streets still mess me up!) So when I was invited for a weekend of family adventure in Calgary I thought, sure… but what is there to do that haven’t seen before?

The team at Tourism Calgary had me eating my words. I had NO IDEA how family friendly Calgary was and how many amazing family adventures there were around every corner! The only problem I had with Calgary was that there was too many things to do and not enough time!!!

Did you know?

  • Calgary is Canada’s sunniest major city with an approximate average of 2,405 hours of sunshine per year?
  • Calgary was recognized in 2013 as the cleanest city in the world!
  • Calgary has the longest urban bike pathway and the largest urban park? Calgary, Alberta, Canada!

 

Mark one up for Calgary and be sure to put it on your own road trip calendar. This time I’m not waiting for another family reunion to make the trip! I’m dying to try out Canada’s Fastest zipline (140km/per hour!) at Olympic park, do a Round the Block Tour and check out the urban parks in beautiful downtown Calgary!

Kids playing at Calgary Zoo.

I was very glad that I made room for my telephoto lens! The butterflies were amazing to capture at the Calgary Zoo!

We felt like we were being watched or followed through some of the exhibits at the Royal Tyrrell Dinosaur Museum! Might as well play along and pose!

Heritage Park was a step back in time. So many fun things to see and do, we could have spent the whole weekend there!

One of the highlights at Heritage Park was the Paddle wheeler Ride! We were greeted by bright beautiful skies!
