599. Rockies Roadtrip | Day 15 - Calgary

On day 15, we arrived in Calgary. After several days fully immersed in nature, we were starting to miss the city life. So our short one night stay in Calgary was a nice change of scenery. It's a pretty small city and very quiet (compared to Toronto) so it only took us a quick few hours to walk around the whole city. It was nice to go at a slower pace and relax for a bit though.

First we walked around the park which was right beside our hotel (Sheraton Suites Eau Claire) then from there we walked all the way to the downtown core which I guess is Stephen Avenue; a pedestrian-only street lined with restaurants and patios.

lobster mac and cheese
For lunch I had the most delicious lobster mac and cheese I've ever had!! Actually this was probably my first ever mac and cheese with lobster, but it was really good.

After lunch, we walked around and didn't really know what else to do. So we decided to go to our favourite spot..Cactus Club for drinks. As you know, I love Cactus Club (just had dinner there tonight lol) and in Vancouver we visited multiple times in various locations pretty much every day. However our experience here was the worst. Actually it was the worst dining service I've ever received in my life. I won't go into full detail on what happened as we did end up getting in touch with management and they were nice to rectify the situation in some way. We were just unlucky to get the worst server. I still love Cactus Club and would recommend it.

After that, we went back to our hotel for the hors d'oeuvres and cocktails hour (we had upgraded to a Club floor suite which included that). It was really nice. I brought my laptop as well to work there in the club lounge. We sat for several hours then left for some drinks at Fionn MacCool's (which was attached to our hotel) for another couple of hours where we had some nice memorable chats.

  1. I wish we had spent another night in Calgary because I get the impression that we only saw half of the city :(
