As the long weekend approaches, we will look at some of the fantastic daytrips you can take from Calgary! We are blessed with everything from mountains to foothills to badlands, all within a few hours travel.
Going south, one of my personal favorites is the Cowboy Trail. After you have meandered along the trail admiring the foothills and the mountains, you can turn west to visit the Crowsnest Pass or go east to visit historic Fort Macleod and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump.
Going east, you can go Walking with the Dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller.
Looking for some family canoeing or a quiet hike? One of our staff members had a great day at Forget-Me-Not Pond.
Check out some of the great books Calgary Public Library has on daytripping from Calgary, such as Southern Alberta for City Folks.
The possibilities are endless - more to come next week.
