If you are looking for the convenience of the city with a little less hustle and bustle, look no further than the communities of Airdrie, Chestermere, and Cochrane.

These areas offer the quaintness of a small town with big-city amenities and plenty of lush green open space. What are you waiting for? Here are a few reasons to make your next move to one of Calgary’s surrounding areas.

New homes in Cochrane

Are you curious about new homes in Cochrane? Waking up to a beautiful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains every morning is just one of the reasons you will want to call this town home.

Don’t forget to take a trip to one of the most famous Cochrane haunts, McKay’s Ice Cream for a treat after a day out in the wind.
