Welcome Home to Calgary, Alberta!

With all the bad press that our beautiful city has been receiving lately, we thought it would be the perfect time to highlight why over a million of us call Calgary home.  


Situated in between beautiful British Columbia and the great plains of Saskatchewan, Calgary, Alberta offers the best of both worlds. To the west, we have gorgeous views of the mountains, abundance of ski hills just at our doorstep, and plenty of recreation such as hiking, canoeing, camping, and fishing. We have made the mountains near Banff and the Kananaskis County our home for long weekends and family getaways year round. Our red and white Wild Rose Country plates are often found all around our sister province of British Columbia due to the short commute between the major citiies (Calgary to Vancouver 972.5 kms which should take you roughly about 10.5 hours drive through the scenic route). 


To the east, we are in awe of the radiant sunrises over the prairies and land that stretches for miles and miles. The land also offers a vast array of breathtaking lakes such as (to name just a few of many): 


Pigeon Lake
Lesser Slave Lake
Lac la Biche
Gull Lake
Morraine Lake
Lake Louise
Sylvan Lake
Maligne Lake
Lake Minnewanka
Winefred Lake
Jackfish Lake
Waterton Lake
Crimson Lake
Peyto Lake
Lake Newell
Beaver Lake
