This bustling western Canadian city is a mix between a busy metropolis and rural western culture.
Calgary, nicknamed Cowtown, has a population of just over 1 million residents and is filled with activities for everyone to enjoy. Unleash your inner cowboy at Heritage Park, where you’ll find 66 acres of historic reenactments of fur trading posts, visit the historic 1860's replica village, or learn about the area’s history at the Gasoline Alley Museum.
The Glenbow Museum has one of the largest and finest collections of art from around the world in Canada. Kids will want to check out the Calgary Zoo, with 1,400 animal species throughout the grounds. Calgary is also known for skiing, due to its location in the Rocky Mountains, and was the home of the 1988 Winter Olympics. Visit Canada Olympic Park to see the slopes and slides of the 1988 games. Take ski lessons, try out the bobsledding or luge tracks, or visit the Olympic Hall of Fame Museum to learn about the games in Canada.
Downtown Calgary’s streets are filled with businesses and are usually quiet outside of normal working hours. Kensington, on the other hand, is always filled with things to do. The up-and-coming neighborhood is home to hip cafes, restaurants, and great nightlife. Uptown 17 has the best bars and clubs, while Inglewood is where to go for the best antique shops and restaurants featuring food from every corner of the earth. Calgary locals are extremely welcoming and friendly. Canadians, in general, are known for their almost extreme politeness.
The city is great to visit in the winter for the skiing, but the summer is the best for the warmest weather for outdoor activities.
