Calgary is full of stunning views, great locations to shoot and the city skyline is something you do not want to miss. Calgary also gets these INSANE sunsets that will literally blow your mind. We have a ton of talented photographers, who show some of the best locations to capture that perfect photo. Take a look at Ana's Instagram, one of Calgary's best photographers.
Breakfast: If you're like me and loveee a good breakfast, make sure you check out Monki Bistro. They have delicious options for vegans, vegetarians and meat lovers. Get there early, the line is always out the door.
How to Get Around: In Calgary, Uber is the way to get around. It's easy, fast and obviously convenient. Need a promo code to sign up? Use the code "jennam277" P.S. Take an uber from the airport as opposed to a Taxi, it will be WAY cheaper.
Shopping Anyone?: You do not want to miss out on PLANT, it's basically heaven for anyone who loves plants or just love that Scandinavian design feel. And, it's in the heart of one of Calgary's coolest neighbourhoods, called Inglewood. (Stop for a bite at The Nash while you're there) (SO MUCH GOOD FOOD IN YYC)
