Just a short drive outside of Calgary, you will find the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary. It’s the only facility of its kind in Canada for a very unique animal. It oversees the rescue and safe sanctuary of wolfdogs that have been neglected, abandoned, or otherwise displaced.

Inside Calgary’s historic Anderson Estates
A peek inside one of the city's oldest residential buildings

Anderson Estates in Calgary

Anderson Estates is one of Calgary’s rare historic properties that has retained much of its original charm and vintage structure. Located at 808 18 Avenue S.W, the residential complex is an old throwback to pre-war era living that has rarely survived in Calgary’s limited stock of heritage buildings.

The World’s Most Beautiful Beer Festival

Banff Craft Beer Festival

Craft beer has never been more popular so an entire festival dedicated to the cause seems more than appropriate for suds-loving Albertans. It was my first time visiting the Banff Craft Beer Festival and what a treat! It’s a good excuse to get out of the city and visit Banff, my home away from home. Hosted at the historic Cave and Basin, it was a great way to sample brews from over 40 Alberta breweries. I find it amazing that Alberta’s craft beer scene has grown in such leaps and bounds with so many local beers to choose from.
