Tourism and Travel Talk

Calgary is preparing for the upcoming Junos (Canadian Music Awards) on April 6.  

Juno Awards
At One Tiny Suitcase, we’re feeling the buzz too. We are looking forward to hosting visitors as a member of Tourism Calgary.

We just posted our latest special offer exclusively on Travel Alberta’s website http://www1.travelalberta.com/en-ab/. We are offering Free Airport Delivery during the Junos so that visitors can have car seats, strollers, pack n plays and more waiting for them when they arrive at the airport.

It got me to thinking…do you check out the Travel and Tourism websites of the city you are visiting before you arrive?

Travel Alberta has a great Family Travel section that highlights some of the attractions in the area.

Toronto’s site www.tourismtoronto.com is really easy to navigate and also posts special offers to family travellers.

I also liked Tourism Vancouver’s site because of it’s section on family and kids http://www.tourismvancouver.com/visitors/things_to_do/family_and_kids/family_and_kids.

It’s too bad but, Manitoba and Saskatchewan’s sites didn’t seem to have a section that was family travel focused. We get a lot of calls from families travelling to those areas looking for Baby Equipment Rentals.

So, next time you are going to visit relatives in a nearby city, check out the Tourism and Travel websites in the area. You  just might need some activities to keep you busy on a rainy (or snowy) day.
