OK, in the middle of doing some research, and resorted to cheating via this forum due to info overload. Off to the Rockies skiing beginning April, flying to Calgary with wife and 10 yr old girl. Plan is to take a couple of days chilling out before hitting the slopes. Any recommendations on hotels to stay at, places to visit in or around Calgary etc?
If you’ve got a couple of days….and seeing as you’re travelling with two females…. you could drive up to edmonton and visit west ed mall – the largest shopping mall in the world. Its about a 3 hour drive if I recall correctly. Bloody big shopping mall too I might add.
Ok, ta for this. Plan is, we’re off skiing in Fernie beginning of April, arriving in Calgary on a Weds, only need to be in Fernie on Sat morning, so thought we’d spend rest of Weds chilling out, and then we’ve got Thurs and Fri to look around Calgary or maybe stop off somewhere en route to the Rockies.
Thinking of just checking out a couple of sights in the city, maybe some museums or something, some nice nosh, and maybe basing ourselves somewhere handy for the airport cos we’ll be picking up a car and driving across to Fernie.
Read a bit about the Bowman museum and the dinosaur park?
