  • Calgary Stampede

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    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...

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...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Jasper National Park Things to Do

    The Athabasca Falls are breathtaking in both the summer and early spring. In the summer you can see the rainbow in the spray of the water as it courses through the gorge. In the early spring the ice almost looks blue. There are paved paths for you to walk around. It's not exactly stroller friendly because there are areas where there are stairs to...

    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...

    Quite a good place to start your skiing life as it has a good range of runs for people of every skill, many of which are novice to intermediate.One of the green trails (novice) has a somewhat nerve racking section on a path only a couple of metres wide, with hill and drop on either side, and little room to manoeuvre the skis to slow down, but over...

    Kananaskis Lakes Warnings and Dangers

    Wildlife is abundant in the area, you will see them while hiking or driving along the road. They may look gentle and docile, but they are not.

    I have traveled to Fort McMurray by car and by airplane. When flying into the Fort McMurray Airport you had one of two choices, get off the plane and walk across the tarmac to get inside the airport or you get to use the one aircraft bridge to bring you in. Once in the tiny airport there was only one baggage belt for your luggage. When you are...

    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...
