A Boomer’s Guide to Calgary

The best baby boomer experiences in Calgary before your trip to the Rockies.

Hang on Boomer travellers. We don’t blame you for wanting to rush off to our stunning Rocky Mountains but don’t let Calgary’s young and energetic vibe fool you. This dynamic city has endless opportunities for visitors in the second half of the game of life.

Having lived in Calgary for more than 30 years, we have taken our own children, and now grandkids to splash parks, ridden amusement rides, and petted more baby goats than can be counted. While family activities and the active nightlife scene of Calgary often take centre stage, Calgary is brimming with fun and active experiences for the Boomer visitor.
