Calgary staycation ideas

Blog by Kim Twohey | August 17th, 2016


The other day I was in a store and wandered down an aisle that was apparently some sort of time tunnel to the future because it was packed with fall and Halloween decorations.  I bid a hasty retreat and thought to myself “uh uh. . . no way.  I am not saying goodbye to summer quite yet!”  I put together this list of summer Calgary staycation ideas so that we can get the most enjoyment possible out of the remaining dog days of summer!  Here are some great activities in and around Calgary perfect for enjoying in summer!
