Each year we spend about 2 weeks each summer in Calgary, Alberta with my sister and her family. Our kids always look forward to seeing their cousins and love spending time with them there.

We usually have a few favorite things to do while we're in town. Here's some kid friendly places we loved visiting during our trip this time!


This year, I decided to buy a seasons pass to the Zoo. If we made 2 visits there during our trip, it would have been paid for with the general admission prices. We also thought that next summer we could also use it if we did the zoo first (It expires after one calendar year). I love that the Zoo also has other perks like discounted admission to other zoo's all over the country and USA.

The kids loved the Calgary Zoo too! There are so many animals to see, lots of space for kids to walk and run around, a prehistoric area with lots of climbing, and a few playgrounds throughout the park. After 2 days spent there, we probably saw most of the zoo. Animal highlights included the pandas, flamingos, penguins, and meerkats.

It's a perfect thing to do with the kids!


We always try to make a visit to Heritage Park each year. Its hands down my favorite attraction to visit. It's a historical village with lots to explore...and who doesn't love the olden days? I love how they've preserved old buildings to make it truly a living museum you can explore. A few of our favorite things to do there included the horse wagon ride, train & boat steam rides, cookies from the bakery, and vintage amusement park.

There is so much to see and do there - we all had such a fun time there. It's a wonderful place to bring your kids to!


We made a little drive out to Canmore which is a small town before you get to Banff. We stopped by the cutest cafe and then did a walk around the river. It was so beautiful there and being outside was so nice. I'm sure there are lots of hikes you can take around there, but with 5 little cousins we decided to do something simple and easy.


We took a visit last year here and it was a great little park and trail you can take in the park. The nature playground was really fun for the kids to play in and we brought a picnic lunch to have while we were there.


I think this was actually one of my kids favorite places to visit! It's a heritage house that's been transformed into a home filled with books. And I mean there are books everywhere! There are so many adorable nooks and crannies that kids can snuggle up in and get comfy to read. It was such a great place for the kids to explore and find special books to read for an hour or so. And each person got to take a a book home! Yes, a free book! How amazing is that! Ben chose a Harry Potter book, Ellie got a Little Mermaid book, and Maddie picked a shark book. Our little visit made for such a relaxing and fun afternoon. My kids already asked if we can go back there!

If you're planning on visiting Calgary anytime soon, hope these suggestions help you out!
