Things to Do in Acadia
Within Acadia itself, you have some very popular hangouts. A good example would be the Peanuts Public House, a sports bar that draws crowds from far-flung locations in Calgary. Known for its 16 beers on tap and a large TV and mostly for its infinite supply of flavoured peanuts, this is one place you want to head to on game nights.
Wind up your day out with a few drinks at the Ranchman’s, which is one of Calgary’s best-known watering holes, especially during Stampede time. Make sure you head here early at this time because you will find quite a large crowd gathering here
