Posted on: Sep 25, 2019

Fall in Alberta is short and sweet. The beautiful colours provide the perfect escape, with an afternoon hike or a drive out of the city. They also provide the most perfect backdrop for selfies, family photos, couple photos, pet photos and more!
We did a little tour and found some beautiful fall spots to check out. Be sure to get there before the leaves blow away and the snow arrives! And please share your favourite fall spots in the Foothills – we’d love to check them out.
If there is one thing that Spruce Meadows is known for, it is beautiful trees and gorgeous fall colours. Spruce Meadows is open every day of the week – stop by to play in their playground and take a stroll through the stunning grounds. There are few better spots for a fall photo!

A drive in the country is a great way to clear your mind, and there are few greater times to enjoy a beautiful country drive than fall. Fuel up and head out the Leighton Centre – not only is it a stunning drive, there is so much to enjoy once you arrive, including beautiful spots for unforgettable photos.

Continue that country drive with a stop at the Chuckwagon Café. If you’ve never been, you simply must go. Their food is incredible and most of all, their service is like no other place you will visit. You are treated like family from the moment you step in the restaurant to the moment you leave.
