    Edmonton Things to Do

    If you were thinking of taking in a show while at the mall head up to Silver City in Phase 3 to get your ticket. If you get there in time you'll get to see the fire breathing dragon. There are 12 screens and and IMAX in the theater. There is also an arcade to spend some time in while waiting for your show to start. Of course there is the popcorn...

  • Calgary Stampede

    Calgary Things to Do

    Stampede was never my idea of a good time as I am not into the whole "cowboy" culture thing, which is very big in Alberta. But having said that I did spend a weekend in the city during stampede and had a fantastic time. I never made it to the actual stampede grounds but walking along Stephen ave is a great time. There are top notch buskers...

    Calgary Local Customs

    After 2012 Centennial many including myself thought Stampede 2013 be somewhat a let down, how wrong we were. 2 weeks to the day that the parade starts off the official beginning of the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede the banks of the Elbow River that run through and along the Stampede overflowed with a velocity that made the opening of the Stampede...

    Banff Things to Do

    I was told the Cascade Gardens are beautiful, and that I must see them as I enjoy gardening and flowers. I think I must have been here at the wrong time, as there were hardly any flowers in bloom, I was disappointed. The lawns were nice, as was the setting, and I loved the stone building which is the headquarter's of Parks Canada. I have seen...

    I think that the ole Griz is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere period. Not only do you get to try all sorts of exotic meats, you get to cook it as well. While there is a full menu of different dish's that you can try, if your going to the Grizzly House the only way to go is with the full meal combo's. Minimum Two Persons Your meal starts...

    Yes they may be cute - you may feel the desire to take pictures of them - you may want to even pet them. Always remember that they are wild animals. The animals in the park always seem to be in their rutting time. Each animal has it's own time. Never feed the animals. A fed bear is a dead bear!Not only are they dangerous wild animals but it's...

If I happen to be at Pyramid Lake Lodge it's a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel.Pyramid Island has been a popular spot to visit since the first foot bridge was build in the 1930's. Couples strolling hand in hand or families sharing a picnic by the lake. In the summer many couples...

    The first thing to mention is the view. Try to have breakfast here at sunrise. It is a spetacular scene to see the sun hit the mountains out the window of this restaurant. You will not be disappointed. If you are staying here they will ask for your room number and name and everyone will call you by name. Makes you feel at home. If you can get a the...

  • Reliable food, poor service

    Fort McMurray Restaurants

    I was visiting my brother- and sister-in-law in Ft Mac for the weekend and we decided to go out to eat on Saturday night. There aren't a lot of options for dining out there - mostly just the standard places like Moxie's, Earl's and the like. The food at OJ's is always good so off we went. The in-law's did say that pretty much any place on a...

    Fort McMurray Things to Do

    I've just visited Fort McMurray for the first time, and I can say there's not a ton to do there unless you're into outdoor activities. I was only there for the weekend with my siblings-in-law who live there, so we decided to check out the Discovery Centre as they hadn't been there either.The museum isn't very big, and the display areas are laid out...

    Cold Lake Restaurants

    We were advised about 3 great places to have pizza. This was the second of the three and we never got to try the 3rd which says a lot about how much we favour this store. The service has been great (all but once) and the delivery time is usually estimated to be within 45 minutes to my place. The food always arrives piping hot and thanks to debit at...

    Cold Lake Restaurants

    Friends had raved about the food at Dairy King and so, one evening we dropped in to see what was on the menu. The staff were warm and welcoming from the start and the menu showed a wide variety of edible goodies. Since it is so rare to find donairs (well.. good ones) in the area, we opted to try those with some of their fries and a milkshake. The...

    Red Deer Things to Do

    As the timing worked out, the first weekend that my wife and I as well as all our daughters, their husbands and our grandchildren converged on Red Deer coincided with a hockey tournament being played in 'nearby' Caroline, toward the west and not far south of Rocky Mountain House. Consequently, we all went for a pleasant winter's drive where we were...

    Drumheller Things to Do

    For a little bit of relaxing fun, head over to the Funland Amusement Park. There are bumper boats, a batting cage, and, my favorite, dinosaur themed mini golf! The course is very small, but it is still fun and takes a decent amount of time to go through. It looks like it should only take 5 minutes, but it takes just as long as any other mini golf...

  • the most horrible chinese food ever

    Lethbridge Restaurants

    We ordered $65.00 worth of chinese food and it was the most disgusting food we have ever tasted. The ginger beef tasted like jerky in a elmers paste glue. The beef and brocolli was more of an over-cooked green slime with chunks of something called beef. The egg rolls were petrified and greasy. All of the food was cold. When we called to complain...
