    Bestie and I are road-tripping to Calgary for the May long weekend. Does anybody have any suggestions for good, wallet-friendly things to do? We're on a bit of a budget, but I haven't been back to Calgary since I was 4, so we'd like to do something fun. Also, any suggestions for a nice places for good eats?

    Also, does anyone have any Calgary entertainment book coupons they are not using and would like to trade for coupons?

    Thanks!

    Things I did to keep costs low on a Calgary trip.
    • stayed at hotels in the NW part of the city
    • explored the wind-powered LRT to get around the city
    • walked/explored the downtown. Do some shopping?
    • since you have a car, you can also take a short drive to the Rockies (Banff) or Edmonton to the North
    • If the recent weather continues, you can try to make snowman.

    Have you ever been to Banff? It is only about an hours drive from Calagary and is sooooo beautiful!! I recommend going there and have a picnic near one of the gorgeous lakes or go for a hike! Hiking is free!

    I agree with the above comments:
    - The zoo is great! It's still recovering from last year's flood but most exhibits are now open. The penguins are my favourite
    - Shopping downtown or Cross Iron Mills (just N on Deerfoot)
    - 17th Ave has lots of great restaurants and pubs
    - There is a park entry fee to go to Banff (its a National Park) but Canmore is closer and there's still lots to see/do

    Hope you have a great weekend!!

    Thanks to everyone for their great suggestions! We are definitely going to do a bunch of shopping and possibly try to do Banff or Canmore. At the rate I'm going, I may need to sell my soul to pay for all the shopping I'd like to do. Does anyone know if Coach takes souls as payment? ;-)

    Have you considered Coach knockoffs for savings?
