The Calgary Stampede
If you want to get the biggest bang for your buck, make sure to visit the Calgary Stampede with the family. There are enough activities to fill up your whole week in Calgary at the Calgary Stampede. From the Splash N' Boots dance show and the Western musical, to the miniature horse show and the petting grounds, both you and your children will have a wonderful time. If you come early enough in the day, you will have time to have breakfast, visit the interactive Ag Zone, and then close the day with the evening rodeo show.
The South Glenmore Spray Park
If you want to cool off for the day, visit the South Glenmore Spray Park and have an excuse for you and your family to get your clothes wet. Located at the south end of the Glenmore Park in Calgary, this attraction is perfect for the tiniest tots and even adults. With a variety of different water features located around the park, you can cool off and get sun at the same time. After you get sprayed, take your kids to the neighboring playground so that they can dry off.
There is nothing more fun than seeing exotic animals face-to-face.

The zoo has more than just exhibits; there are also educational shows so that your children can learn while they are on vacation.
