When you have the choice of everything from a thundering steam train to antique midway rides to beautifully preserved heritage buildings and homesteads, deciding what to do first isn't easy. Located in Calgary, Alberta, Heritage Park is Canada's largest living history museum, with hundreds of exhibits, rides, shops, restaurants and daily demonstrations and activities to keep the young and the young-at-heart captivated in the past. No two days at the Park are the same, so come back as often as you like for a history lesson you won't find in any textbook.

You must go if you haven't. Something for everyone from the classic car displays to the Ferris wheel and carousel to the BEST train ride you will ever have ! Then end your Day on the S.S.Moyie steam boat.

I enjoyed the festival, however, because of the time of year, almost everything was closed. I would like to go again when more is open because it seemed like it would be a great place. I enjoyed gasoline alley, and all the events happening for the festival. Also the bakery had phenomenal baked goods.

This is such a beautiful and fun place to go at Christmas. Although the weather didn't cooperate this year with the outdoor activities, there was still lots to see and do. There are carolers in the street, gingerbread cookie decorating, a beautiful old model train set up, playing the opera house. We love this place at Christmas it really gets... More

We had family company from Ontario & like us they really enjoyed the brunch at the hotel. As soon the platters became empty they filled them right away. Our server looked after us very well. The coffee was delicious too as we liked ours a bit strong. Will go back again.

We went as an extended family group: three generations. All of us enjoyed ourselves. We did it all: rode the old train; boarded the old ferryboat; ate at the restaurant, and visited most of the houses. Our favourite? The collection of antique cars.
