Visit Calgary

Introduction

Calgary is the largest city in Alberta and sits between the foothills of the Rockies and the Prairies. Calgary travel offers a great escape from the mountainous wilderness of nearby Banff National Park. Established in 1875, Calgary is a built up city that still retains old character despite the presence of skyscrapers. Visit Calgary Tower for incredible views of The Rockies.

Calgary Stampede

Your Calgary holiday should definitely feature the Calgary Stampede. This famous 10-day festival entertains the crowds with a massive parade, rodeos, wagon racing and many more enjoyable events. Cowboy boots aren't a rare sight on the busy streets of this city that reminds you of its cowboy roots.

Parks

View the host of wildlife at Calgary Zoo and floral displays in the Botanical Gardens. Or prepare for a picnic at Prince's Island Park. Follow the hiking trails in Fish Creek Provincial Park or its cross-country ski trails in winter. And don't forget Canada Olympic Park where Calgary hosted the 1988 Winter Olympic Games.

Arts and Museums

Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre combines architecture and colour to impress, whereas the Glenbow Museum displays artifacts of First Nations history. Pay a visit to Calgary for its performing arts and celebrated old buildings such as Fort Calgary History Park and Heritage Park Historic Village.
