Lions, tigers, and fighter planes, oh my! When it comes to family vacations in Calgary, you have your pick of activities to explore with the eager brood.
With your hotel taken care of, prepare to hear the lions’ roars, watch the mountain goats leap, and be amazed at the gorillas’ depth of intelligence at the animal park.
Unsurprisingly, Calgary Zoo is the second most-visited animal enclosure in Canada and one of the highest recommended kids activities in Calgary. Aside from visiting the animals, if your kids love shooting paper planes all over the house, head over to the Aero Space Museum. The historic museum features fighter jets, cargo planes, and antique helicopters.
Calgary is the perfect city for family fun. It’s easy to bond when all of you are floating down the Elbow River or watching the cowboys ride the bulls during the Calgary Stampede. The little ones may also enjoy Butterfield Acres Children’s Farm. The farm allows kids to hold baby ducks, ride ponies, and rubs their hands through the tough wool of sheep. October is a popular month to visit, as the Harvest Pumpkin Hunt is a legendary good time.
