#ExploreABWithMe 2022 – Plan and share your Alberta Adventure with Me!

This Summer 2022, I am excited to bring back the #ExploreABWithMe (Explore Alberta With Me) initiative I started last year, encouraging you to embrace and explore your own backyard (Alberta)!

Although more people are planning farther-away trips these days, I’ve always believed being a tourist in your own town (province) is one of the most fun things you can do—and it’s something I highly recommend even if you do have a chance to go outside of province this summer too. 

I can honestly say I have explored more of Alberta than the average person, and yet—there is still SO many places within Alberta I have not yet been—things I haven’t seen, food I haven’t tried, towns, cities, parks, regions, I haven’t visited. There is so much to see and do here, I can’t recommend exploring Alberta enough. And I hope you’ll consider doing so this summer—and tagging me in your adventures! 

This Summer 2022, I’m encouraging you to: #ExploreABwithMe!

Use my blog travel guides (listed below) to help plan your Alberta Adventure this summer. Share about your adventures on social media for a chance to win some prizes (details below). And try to go where I’ve been—use this initiative as an Alberta travel passport!

Can we talk about this gorgeous courtyard?

I stayed / worked with Coast Canmore a couple of years ago and absolutely loved the hotel, dining options, and proximity to mountain adventure. 

Coast Canmore Hotel and Conference Centre is located in the heart of Canmore, just minutes away from Banff National Park. Pet-friendly and bursting with authentic mountain town energy, the Coast Canmore Hotel, and its on-site restaurant Table Food and Drink (also pet-friendly on its beautifully sunny patio) are the perfect home base for any mountain adventure. Whether you are looking for a fun family staycation or a romantic getaway for two, there is something for everyone. With access to vast wilderness and endless trails, an incredible culinary scene and amazing local shops nearby, there is no shortage of ways to spend your time at the Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre!!
