Best Day trips/foodie destinations near Calgary?
- MartinT Apr 3, 2010 01:00 PM
Calgary has an excellent selection of places nearby where a foodie can take a day drive and make a destination for a special lunch or dinner or other specialty.
My favorites are Route 40 Soup Company, Bison Mountain Bistro, Mackays Ice cream, and I'm about to try the Priddis View and Brew today. Any other suggestions?

Edgar Farms up here does an Asparagus Festival every Spring for instance(their pickled asparagus is fantastic) and Jungle Farm does upick berries and a fall pumpkin patch.There are also seasonal "Country Drives" and I know dee hobsbawn-smith does a guided bus tour they called "Foodie Tootle" look for ads for it in City Palate
