In Alberta, fall is bustling with life and growth and fun. As the seasons change, many families are looking to get out and experience the harvest feeling. There are U-Pick farms to visit, which are producing the last of their season’s yield, farmers’ markets bursting with fresh seasonal produce and baking, and corn mazes and hayrides just begging to be experienced!
The town of Cochrane is located 20 minutes west of Calgary and makes for a great day trip close to the city for a weekend family outing. You’ll experience mountain vibes, fresh air, and country living without having to make a longer drive out to Canmore or Banff.
For Albertan families, this is our second summer of vacationing at home, and many of us are itching to get away. Some have been lucky enough to snap up a campsite this year, but not everyone owns an RV or a tent - or even likes roughing it!
