Getaway #1 – Great Theatre
Rosebud Theatre is a theatre enthusiast’s dream come true. Located 100 kilometres from Calgary and 35 kilometres from Drumheller, Rosebud is a hamlet nestled in a beautiful valley. The vibrant and creatively gifted community thrives on creating magic at the Rosebud Theatre.
Getaway #2 – Great Food
Berry-filled goodness: Treat yourself to the Heartwood Inn’s scrumptious breakfast while visiting the Drumheller area. Owner and Chef Zeke Wolf’s breakfast hosts all the ingredients needed for the perfect French toast: fruit, flavor and lots of syrup. Filled with four types of berries and topped off with cinnamon and orange zest, these are hard to resist. Pure maple syrup is especially flown in from an organic farm in Ontario. Wolf was first introduced to the syrup when friends gifted him a jar and he just had to go back for more. He says he tried to use a variety of syrups but none of them “have as good a character.”
Getaway #3 – Great Festivals
Calgary nurtures vibrant and lively festivals in the summer that offer plenty of entertainment for adults and children alike. The Taste of Calgary festival in August is perfect for families looking to do something different. For picky eaters or the adventurous, the Taste of Calgary offers the world on a buffet. The long hours of the festival let eating enthusiasts pick a time of day that is most convenient.
