Happy almost weekend, everyone! We are down to the wire and the weekend is just around the corner. That means you need to start planning all your adventures. We came up with a list of things to do in Calgary this weekend so you don't have to put your thinking cap on. If you don’t see something you love on the list then you aren’t looking hard enough.
Summer has come to an end and so has the workweek. In a matter of hours, we'll have two glorious days off.
Now is the time to get on the group chat and start planning your weekend.
We came up with eight must-do, unique activities that are perfect for kicking off fall.
Just because things are cooling down doesn’t mean you have to bunker down inside.
Put on a cozy sweater, fill up a to-go mug with your fave pumpkin spice, and hit the town.
From hidden bars to photoshoots galore, this list has something for every personality trait.
