From Lundbreak to Athabasca, where there are mountains, there are also plenty of breathtaking waterfalls. This week we’d recommend seeing as many of them as you can, but not just because it’ll give you something to do. The springtime is actually the best time to go waterfalls watching due to the water pressure being so high from all of the ice melting and trust us, you won’t want to miss out on all of the action.
After lounging our way through the winter months, we think that it’s safe to say that a lot of you are ready to stretch your legs and get back outside. One of the best ways to really make the most of the spring or summer? By taking a leisurely ride on a two-wheeler, of course! Check out the link above for the 10 best places for a bike ride in Calgary!
This week, dine like the kings and queens that you are! Foodies In The Park are back, this time with a Royal-themed dining experience.
