boy-1690454_1920

Summer break is officially here in our household, and as a stay at home mom what the heck to I do with my kids. We live in such an amazing city, it’s so easy to play tourist in our own backyard. 

Here are some of my favourite things to do in the summer and also some great resources for you to add to your list!

Calgary Stampede – I would be remiss if I didn’t include the greatest outdoor show in the world. Thousands of visitors come to Calgary just to experience this 10 day extravaganza. www.calgarystampede.com

Splash Parks – Calgary has a plethora of free splash parks, that I’m just starting to discover. The city of Calgary has a great link of all the locations. Click here for more info.

Arts & Crafts – hit your nearest dollar store with your kids and stock up on some great arts and crafts items.

Calgary Attractions – This is an obvious item on our list. We really do have the most amazing attractions here. Did you know you can get some great savings on entrance fees by going to www.calgaryattractions.com

Bike Paths – I hope to hit up some of our bike paths this summer, now that my girls can handle longer rides. Calgary maintains approximately 220 km of local pathways which is pretty amazing. Bike path info
