I get asked all the time, "Ben, what is your favorite place you've traveled?" My answer is always the same - Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Everything about the city from the airport arrival process to driving out of the airport and into the city is amazing. That is only the start.
Drive west an hour and you're in the most beautiful mountains on earth. Some of the most beautiful storms on earth are in Alberta. You can find wildlife from Grizzly Bears to Elk to Wild Horses all within a day drive of Calgary.
