Vacay.ca Spends a Local’s Weekend in Calgary
Who better than Vacay.ca’s Jody Robbins to show you around Calgary? A local gal, Robbins recently delivered a terrific guide to a perfect weekend in Calgary, if you want to avoid the touristy parts of town.
Robbins writes: “It’s no secret Calgarians love to shop. But locals hit the high streets just as often as the mega malls. Many prefer to pop into the posh stores in Kensington Village before crossing the controversial Peace Bridge onto Prince’s Island Park. This island oasis within the city features a well-equipped playground and River Cafe, which ranked 22nd on the Vacay.ca Top 50 Restaurants in Canada Guide for 2013. The restaurant has re-opened and is doing bustling business after the June flood forced it and many other businesses to shut down. Inside, you’ll feel like you’re in an upscale hunting lodge as you warm up by the wood-burning fire and tuck into seasonal, sustainable cuisine (including many game options) amid the rustic furnishings.”
