Fort Calgary Museum Admission
"Visit the place where Calgary began! Situated at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers Fort Calgary has been important to the Blackfoot and other Indigenous peoples for centuries. When the North West Mounted Police (now the RCMP) arrived in 1875 it was a natural place for them to build a fort. Made of simple logs this fort stood for only a few years but the site continues to be a important marker of Calgary's heritage. Today the Fort Calgary Museum and Interpretive Centre provides an engaging overview of Calgary’s vibrant history and the tumultuous history of this site. Your museum visit includes opportunities to try on an RCMP uniform

Calgary Craft Beer Tour
"Enjoy a day dedicated to notable beer while immersed in Calgary’s legendary western hospitality. Your day begins in our picturesque downtown at the base of the iconic Calgary Tower where you will meet your guide. After some quick introductions our luxury vehicle will make it way to Village Brewery. Enjoy your first tasting as Village Brewery shares their craft story; one that is closely tied to the arts and cultural scene. Next stop is always a favorite - lunch at Craft Beer Market offering over 120 local and international taps flowing with perfectly chilled craft beer.  Their steel draft lines that rise up from the towers to cross the ceiling and cascade down into the glass-enclosed keg room ensuring the brew they serve is as we shuttle you to Calgary's first nano brewery; Dandy Brewing Company. Working in a small space these innovative brewers use creativity and alternative-brewing equipment to produce some “dandy” brews. With their enterprising tale you might be tempted to set up your own home brew system. Next stop is Tool Shed Brewing Company
