  • West Edmonton Mall

    Edmonton Tourist Traps

    If you're coming here solely to shop, just skip it. It's the same stores owned by the same corporations across the globe. La Senza, Hollister, the Disney Store, Sketchers, The Body Shop...yep. The attractions are worth wandering around. Galaxyland is a pretty-cool themed amusement park. Get a day pass and go on a few rides so it's worth the cost,...

  • Calgary Stampede

    Calgary Tourist Traps

    During Stampede, all of a sudden the drinks are more expensive, the cover charge is more, or if there wasn't cover charge before, there is now!!! One of the best examples of this is Cowboys, which is considered "the place to be" during Stampede. Not only do they charge you $10 to get in (as opposed to the usual $5), you pay up to $10 for a drink,...

  • Calgary Tower

    Calgary Tourist Traps

    I like the Calgary Tower. At the time of it’s building, 1967, it was the tallest free standing structure in North America. I remember seeing it slowly rise into the sky during 24 days of continuous concrete pouring. The view from the top was breath taking. You could see the tower from just about anywhere in town and it became one of our proud...

  • Heritage Park

    Calgary Tourist Traps

    Heritage Park - a theme park in Calgary that gives visitors an authentic look at life in a Canadian town in the early 1900's. First of all...it is really expensive to go for what you get. However if you are interested in the 'little house on the prairie/ anne of green gables' kind of town you may find it worth the cash. You can ride on an authentic...

  • Fort Calgary

    Calgary Tourist Traps

    Calgary began as a fort built between the Bow and Elbow rivers. On the original site, the part of the fort has been rebuilt, the front wall (what Hollywood calls a façade). To the side is a small expensive museum with some frontier artifacts. Save your money for the Glenbow museum which has a better collection of artifacts and Heritage Park with...

  • PEYTO LAKE VIEWPOINT

    A little over 20 miles north of Lake Louise on the Icefields Parkway, you will come to a viewpoint over Lake Louise that is an obligatory stopping point for travelers. The view over the glacially turquoise waters of Peyto Lake below are sublime. What most people don’t realize is that another one of those hiking gems of the Canadian Rockies also...

  • LAKE AGNESS

    The teahouse is the magnet for sweating masses out of the Chateau Lake Louise. The lake is named for the First Lady of Canada, Lady Susan Agness MacDonald, who was the second lady to have officially visited the lake - the first was also named Agness :-] The lake is a little over five kilometers up from the hotel - almost 400 vertical meters are...
