Calgary – a City Like no other

Calgary – a City Like no other



If you’ve always wanted to visit Canada, why not travel to
Calgary, a city that offers excitement and variety in the middle of the
Canadian heartland.  Calgary, located in the beautiful foothills of the
majestic Rocky Mountains, happens to be the largest city in the province of
Alberta, and the third largest city in all of Canada.  With such a sizeable
population, you would assume that Calgary has lots to offer.  And it does.


Your first stop through this
Canadian city should be the Calgary Tower.  This magnificent tower, which
stands more than 600 feet above the city, allows you to view the greater
metropolitan area of Calgary with the majestic Rocky Mountains in the
background.  Ride up to the observation deck and step out on to the amazing
glass floor where you can look directly down at those below.  But if you’d
rather catch a glimpse of the stunning Canadian skyline, look straight through
the equally clear glass panes.  If all this gets you a bit woozy, order a cold
soda at the Tower’s revolving restaurant.  Just don’t sit down at noon, as the
restaurant makes a 360-degree rotation. 


Once you leave the tower,
head over to Calgary’s amazing Stephen Avenue Walk, the city’s National
Historic District.  This avenue is dedicated solely to pedestrians from 6 am to
6 pm each day.  This pedestrian area compliments the avenue’s historic
buildings that line the street.   Stroll through its many boutiques, pubs,
restaurants and unique shops.  If you want to purchase a painting or two, don’t
miss stopping in one of its highly acclaimed galleries.  But if you’re
searching for that perfect piece of jewelry or crafts work, do stop by one of
the street vendors that sell their goods along the avenue. 


If you happen to be visiting
during the month of July, don’t miss the renowned Calgary Exhibition and
Stampede.  This event, which runs 10 days each year in July, features the old
Wild West at its best.  Here, you’ll be privy to a real-life, action-packed
rodeo show, where real-life cowboys show you how to rope in a cow.  If that’s
not enough, watch one of the chuckwagon races or climb aboard one of the
amusement park rides. 


In Calgary, you’ll experience
Canada at its best.
