We can probably all agree that fall is one of the best seasons here in Calgary – cue cozy knit sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin picking, corn maze adventuring, and leaf stomping!

Although the season may be short and sweet here in YYC there is definitely no shortage of fun adventures to be had. This is the time to spend as much time outside enjoying the beautiful weather before the cold hits, so be sure to head up to the mountains for a hike or two, or try your luck at one of the many 5K or 10K runs happening around the city in support of some tremendous causes.
