When you’ve got visitors coming to visit you in Calgary this summer, there’s a route you perform with each guest.
You do the Calgary Tower, you walk along the Bow River, you visit Heritage Park, you take them to see COP.
You might throw in Fort Calgary, the Calgary Zoo, Telus Spark, a walk of Inglewood, 17th Ave, or Kensington.You’ll look at the Saddledome from Scotsman’s Hill, you’ll check out the wonderful outdoor art at the Bow Tower. You’ll have some ice cream at Village, you’ll have a beer at Wild Rose Brewery , you’ll have a steak at Caesars.
Then you go to the mountains because, honestly, Calgary is just the gateway to the Rocky Mountains for the tourists who come to town.
The Rocky Mountains define Canada to so much of the world. This narrow strip of mountains has come to symbolize the country around the world. We have colourful maritimes, eternal prairies, and ancient forests, yet someone will visit the Rockies and say “I’ve been to Canada.”
So when you have out of town guests coming to visit, a tour of the mountains will be on the itinerary. The easiest way to hit the highlights is to tackle all that Brewster has to offer and it’s best to plan ahead and buy the tickets now.
Brewster is selling the Epic Explorer package, getting you access to 4 of the best attractions in the Rockies for just $99.95 (regular $179.95, offer available until Jun 30, 2015).
The promotion is being tagged #EpicMadeEasy and, as you can see from my visits to each of the places since we’ve moved to Calgary, it’s bucket list stuff that locals and tourists alike need to check off.
Each Epic Explorer Package Includes:
A heart-pounding walk on the glass-floored Glacier Skywalk
An Ice Age exploration on the Glacier Adventure
A tranquil tour on the Banff Lake Cruise
A trip to the top of Sulphur Mountain on the Banff Gondola
While you’re out in the mountains, you can hike at Lake Louise, have a soak in the Banff Hot Springs, cycle the Legacy Trail, and more.
You know the routine. You know the highlights you need to show a guest visiting Calgary. You just need to plan ahead to save some money.
Disclosure: We were guests of Brewster’s on a recent visit to Banff and Jasper National Park.
