Melissa's Story

Armed with an International Relations degree from the University of Calgary, Melissa Vroon travelled the globe studying, working and volunteering in more than 40 countries before she and her husband decided to make Calgary their preferred city to raise their two children. In addition to being a mom & “boo-boo” kisser, travel addict, lover of books, Melissa is also a co-owner of the go-to resource for parents in Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Saskatoon, Toronto, and Vancouver that are looking for great things to do with their children in their hometown. She is the co-founder of Family Fun Canada, an online travel magazine for Canadian families.



Why Calgary?

"Calgary is a vibrant city filled with young families who love to get out and have incredible experiences. Whether it’s going for a hike in the great outdoors, taking in a theatre performance or trying a new restaurant, Calgarians are adventurous. Over half a million Calgarians visited in 2015 looking for the latest activities and events happening in the city."
