Seriously though, it's awesome.
Okotoks is vibrant, alive and full of coolness! For starters, the town is named after a giant 16,000 ton rock that migrated from the mountains! You can't make this stuff up! It travelled all that way just to be here, so this place has got to be amazing. Or maybe it's the abundance of restaurants, parks, pubs, eateries, cows, and shops. Okotoks feels like a big city, but you can get to know everyone. We're just that darn friendly here.
Okotoks has been Calgary's favourite bedroom community for decades, so even Calgary knows that Okotoks is a better place to live. And when you start throwing all sorts of cool people from Calgary into a town like Okotoks, something incredible happens: you get a perfect blend of the old and the new. Heritage homes nestled amongst new architecture and dynamic culture. In Okotoks, you can spend time with the peaceful prairies, say "hi" to some cows and rabbits, eat some sushi or go shopping. It makes no sense, but it's awesome!
Check in on this site every week or two and see just how awesome Okotoks is!
About us, and about this site
We're crazy about Okotoks! Every week or two we post a list of 10 awesome things in Okotoks. Sometimes we stick to a theme, sometimes it's pure random craziness. Either way, it's awesome. There's so much going on that even the people living in it might not know it all. Where's the best sledding hill? Who's hot-wings are the greatest? Where is the best cat-portrait? We're going to find it all out and then post it on here. If you know of something awesome in this town, then tell us what it is so we can get it on here. We'd love to hear your favorite businesses too!
Okotoks is Awesome is the pet project of real estate agent extraordinairre Karen Salmon. During the day, she's an on-the-go Okotoks area real estate agent, selling and finding the best Okotoks homes for people like you. By night, when not REALTING, she fights crime and works on this blog. Karen knows Okotoks is a vibrant, friendly, and beautiful town, and it's time that everyone else knows it too. But, this site is not about Okotoks real estate, and it's not about Karen Salmon. It's about Okotoks and everything in it. We can't wait to see your submission! Stay tuned!
