You can have fun in Calgary without spending mega wads of cash. The current Alberta economic slump has impacted tens of thousands of people across our province, but that doesn't mean you can't still lead a fulfilling life! Treating yourself to some frugal fun will keep you motivated and productive in the long-run. Whatever limits you may be dealing with right now, please remember how important it is to take breaks to recharge.
Camping is a beloved Canadian pastime, but booking a popular campsite during the peak summer months can be as challenging as catching rare Pokémon. For more and more families, a great alternative to enjoying camping is during the ‘off’ season, when the air is crisp and the woods are lined with pristine layers of white snow.
If the long-range forecast is correct, Calgarians are in for a longer, colder, and snowier winter than we had last year. While some of you may be cheering, others may be wondering how to keep the kids entertained through these long, cold months. First and foremost, it’s about attitude - if you complain about the cold weather, so will your kids. If you dress for the cold weather, there’s absolutely no reason not to get outside and enjoy our beautiful Calgary sunshine and view of the Rocky Mountains. Also, winter offers us a great opportunity to slow down, get a little creative, and maybe even get around to some tasks we’ve been putting off all year. Here’s my list of top 5 boredom busters for tweens and teens.
