Living in Alberta, we’re lucky to have one of the most beautiful natural gems right in our backyard: the Rockies. Would you say that because you live in (or around) Calgary, you stick to camping adventures in the mountains or just south of Red Deer? I can see why. Would you believe me if I told you there are some wonderful non-mountainous campgrounds in the upper half of Alberta?
The kids are out of school, it’s a beautiful sunny day, and a road trip is calling! Fortunately, you don’t have to go far because Calgary is surrounded by great parks, fun destinations, lakes, and recreational activities. Choose a direction and you’ll be rewarded with a new adventure every week of the summer!
The arrival of summer usually means one thing: time to head out into the great outdoors and make the most of Canada’s fabulous natural spaces. However, with the world still in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic, many family vacation plans have been cancelled or postponed due to border restrictions.
Vacation is a great way to escape the monotony and responsibilities of everyday life and to have fun, explore new places, and try new things. Unfortunately, traveling for vacation isn’t always realistic if money’s tight, you have time restrictions, or in unusual circumstances, such as stay-at-home orders during the pandemic. Despite such obstacles, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a refreshing break and memorable staycation!
