My wife and I recently had the pleasure of visiting the absolutely electrical Calgary Alberta! We had never been to Canada before and so for this year’s vacation we chose a location that perhaps might not be at the top of everyone’s list of places to see, but as we’ve found sometimes it’s the more obscure locations that offer the most unique experience.
Among our adventures in Calgary we visited the Titanic artifact exhibition which was a real treat! My wife is a die hard fan of the Spielberg movie so I wasn’t getting out of this one. Of course we couldn’t miss the Calgary Tower — the city’s most famous and identifiable physical landmark, offering a breathtaking 360-degree view of the city! Then of course there was the zoo where we saw a surprising array of animals from all over the world.
My wife and I like to fly by the seat of our pants and so most of the attractions we visited were those we were referred to by our hotel staff. There was one in particular however which we had always wanted to see — a national historic site called Fort Calgary. As much as we Americans like to poke fun at “the Mounties” their story was actually a quite fascinating one.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to take everything in with one weekend so we will be going back, eventually. Electrical indeed!
