    Default Things to do in and around Calgary (out of town guest)

    I have a guest coming from out of town this weekend. She currently lives in LA, and has travelled quite a bit.

    We already have Banff and the mountains for 2 days, so I need to take her somewhere else for another day.

    Are there any good places to take her in or around Calgary? All I can do at most is a day trip somewhere.

    nose hill park? plan a picnic if weather is nice. either make your own or u can get some pre-made picnic. I think mount royal still does picnic things, they usually do it for shakespeare in the park. Or u can go rafting on the bow. Or walk the bike path downtown. Rollerblading, biking? go karting, mini-golfing??

    If your friend is coming this summer, I would check events calendars around calgary and see if there may be a festival on at that time. Lilac, salsa etc. If she is here on a Friday night, there is a Movie in the Park that is a little different to go to (if she doesn't feel like going to party). I agree with the floating down the bow as well.

    You could drive down HWY 22, go to the Bar-U Ranch then come back up on HWY 2 and stop off at Head-Smashed-In Bufffalo Jump.

    instead of banff i would highly reccomend doing the drive to the icefields parkway...and go the icefield. i trip i would reccomend is take off a little earlier int eh morning to see the glacier and then on the way back stop in at banff.
