You’re Going to Need a Bigger Bucket

With so many new adventures opening in Alberta this summer, the question becomes — which will you toss in your bucket first?
Story by Jacquie Moore

It’s impossible to make summer plans in Calgary without considering a visit to the Rocky Mountains. Well, that, and a pilgrimmage to the Canadian birthplace of feminist-driven constitutional reform.

Wait — what?

While the Rockies have long been an iconic tourist attraction (we’re told the mountains even pre-date Travel Alberta brochures), the latter endeavour has only just made its debut on the world stage. This summer, Heritage Park’s Famous 5 Centre of Canadian Women joins two new Rocky Mountain attractions — all rolled out in part by University of Calgary alumni — that, together, make Alberta’s profile as a bucket-list destination even richer and more diverse than ever.
