Eau Claire Accommodations

The Calgary Stampede has been billed as “The Greatest Rodeo Show on Earth”. Stay in vacation rentals instead of a hotel. Catch the excitement. The modern-day city of Calgary – the oil capital of the Province of Alberta – is known for its friendly “White Hat” hospitality, and has been affectionately called “cow town” by many of its long-time residents. It is located in the grasslands and natural parkland regions, bordering on the Canadian Rockies foothills to the west, and covers 726.5 square kilometers, 280.5 square miles.

The neighbourhood of Eau Clair is one of the five areas making up Calgary’s downtown. Many an office worker has taken their bagged lunch and walked over the footbridge to Prince’s Island Park. In your vacation rental accommodations, prepare a picnic and join then. Staying in vacation rentals rather than in a hotel makes you feel right at home. Enjoy a stroll through Eau Clair and explore its unique shops. Join the outdoor enthusiasts who jog, walk and bike along the river trails. The Eau Clair Market’s eclectic variety of specialty shops, boutiques and restaurants is open in the springtime and summertime.

Instead of cooking supper in your holiday home accommodation, this is the time to taste Canada's Best Hamburger” . Head North up the Centre Street hill. Turn right on 16 Avenue NE (TransCanada Highway 1). Drive 350 meters and you have arrived at Peters’ Drive-In. Tourist buses continue to stop here and grandparents are bringing their grandchildren to what once was a little burger shack, and their favorite hang-out. Nearly covering a city block, the parking lot is lined with trees. Sit at one of the many picnic benches. Enjoy real-fruit milkshakes, single fries large enough to feed two people. Don’t be surprised to bite into an extra half patty in you single cheese burger! The quality has remained the same over the years, and so has the service. A swipe machine is non-existent. One of the 80 employees will take your order, pencil down the cost of each item, tally what you owe, and accept your payment in this cash-only establishment. Afterwards, go to the Eau Clair Market Cineplex and catch a movie at one of the cinemas. Later on, enjoy the conversation of friends and family as you gather in the living room of your comfortable vacation rental.

With only a five-minute drive from downtown, it is easy to visit the Calgary Zoo, Botanical Garden and Prehistoric Park on St. Patrick’s Island in the Bow River. Walk through six acres of botanical gardens. Treat yourself to brunch at the Safari Lodge. The Prehistoric Park uniquely presents an image of Western Canada as it may have looked when dinosaurs roamed this area. The Eau Claire YMCA is located beside beautiful pathways, parks and the Bow River. Enjoy a swim; play a game of racquetball, or avail yourself of the fitness studio or workout areas.

Calgary is the gateway to BanffNational Park – famous for the Town of Banff and Lake Louise - in the Rocky Mountains. For your summertime hiking or wintertime skiing vacation, stay in a condo rental in the Town of Canmore, located just before the park’s gates. Owner Direct Vacation Rentals has chalet rental accommodation, condo rentals, holiday home rentals nestled in the forest, cabins, lake-side cottages, apartments in the city, and other lodging accommodations.
