The best place to stay in Calgary

Calgary comes alive in the summer! Here are some of our favourite activities for taking advantage of the sunshine!


THE CALGARY ZOO

The Calgary Zoo is one of Canada’s biggest and most amazing menageries! It’s easy to spend a full day here, marvelling at this incredible display of animals and learning about their habitats and how we can protect them. My personal favourites include the penguins, and the recently acquired kermode “spirit” bear! Even better, the new display “The Land of Lemurs” is opening this summer!


TELUS SPARK

Just a few hundred metres from the Zoo is the Telus Spark science centre, a fun and interactive way to learn about the natural sciences! It’s great for families, but it’s also fun for adults!


THE STAMPEDE!

We’ve already told you about the Stampede, and we’re going to do it again. Taking place July 7-16, this is a must-visit party.


INGLEWOOD BIRD SANCTUARY

A gorgeous walk in a preserved park, the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary has only been open for a few years since it was wiped out with a major flood, but we’ve counted our blessings ever since. The temporary home of many migrant birds, this a paradise for birders and a great walk for the rest of us.
Last time I went, I even saw some deer!


CALAWAY PARK

A short drive out of town, Calaway Park is Western Canada’s largest outdoor amusement park! Fun for the whole family, I dare you to ride the Vortex roller coaster!


GLENBOW MUSEUM

Sometimes, you need a break from the sun. If you want to make the most of some air conditioning, check out the Glenbow Museum. A unique combination of art, history, and more, the Glenbow is always fascinating and informative.


HERITAGE PARK

A “historical village” featuring trained actors, Heritage Park is a way to experience the history of settlement in Western Canada in a fun, interactive way!


MILITARY MUSEUM

Celebrate Canada’s legacy as peacekeepers with The Military Museum! The largest of its sort in Western Canada, this tri-military museum examines the history of Canada’s Army, Navy, and Air Force!


FORT CALGARY

A genuine piece of living history, Fort Calgary is one of Calgary’s oldest museums and outposts that has been restored as a museum. Fun and educational!


ESCAPE ROOMS

If you’ve never tried an escape room, you’re missing out on one of the most fun trends of the last five years! Confined is a fine example in Calgary, filled with fun, puzzles, and teamwork!
