Calgary, Canada offers a choice of free and minimal cost of activities for families and budget travelers. For me, the best activities in Calgary includes, but not limited to, rollerblading, dining in Kensington, hiking the nearest mountains or even having a picnic in one of its many parks. If you are interested in mountain sports, this city is exactly a place to be. There’s incredible trekking, skiing, water rafting, kayaking, and camping here. It’s one of the liveliest urban areas in Canada as it holds the week-long popular Calgary stampede in July, which more often than not attracts in countless of individuals from around the globe. The following are the spots where I for one think are worth a visit.

Calgary Stampede

The yearly Stampede brings in a large number of cowboys from everywhere throughout the nation and world. Calgary is recognized as a cowboy-area, and its truly a sight in the event if you’re visiting in July. Nonetheless, the Stampede is essentially a reason to party together and most individuals would come here just to go insane. Tickets for park entrance (not including rodeo attractions) are USD15. Most of anything will double in cost throughout this celebration, so bring a great deal of cash. (image by : Duncan Kinney)

Visit The Calgary’s Parks

With a number of wonderful parks scattered throughout Calgary, expect to have a good time hiking the trails or you can even do it just like me, spend a low-cost picnic time at your favorite park!

Stephen Avenue Walk

Stephen Avenue is a magnificent area to eat delicious food, drink and shop. Stroll along its cobblestone avenues, and shop at the collectible stores or the boutiques before taking a seat at one the numerous restaurants’ open air porches for a beverage. Well, at least that’s what I would do there.

Fish Creek Provincial Park

Lining along the Bow River is the Fish Cree. It’s ideal for strolling, climbing and rollerblading along its cleared trails. For your information, they have a great deal of great trekking trail

Crazy Nightlife of Kensington

Kensington is located in the northwest part of the city. It is where everything happens at night. In late July, there is a Sun and Salsa celebration. On the weekends, restaurants will be filled up before everyone hits the close-by bars and clubs.(image by : Joe Sampouw)

For your information, Calgary took an enormous big hit during 2013’s summer flooding, and a significant part of the city’s downtown center was destroyed. The government has invested a lot of money in the recovery effort, but a few things are still under development. Apart from that, Calgary has become a lot more expensive over the last few years because of the oil money. Prices of accommodation and food have gone up substantially. However, I can assure you that Calgary is still worth a visit. Just trust me on this one.
