Calgary

City of Cowboys

1 Jan to 01 Jan
 
Known as the most fun and festive city in Canada, Calgary welcomes its visitors with lots of excitement, joy and... Rodeos! The cultural offer is immense and you'll have at your disposal activities for all tastes and for the whole family.


Calgary is easily recognizable by its skyline formed by huge skyscrapers, but it is in the downtown area that most of its attractions are located. Here you can visit, among many other things, the Zoo, the Telus World of Science Museum, the Glenbow Museum, the Art Gallery, the Performing Arts Centre and the Convention Centre. Prince's Island Park and the Calgary Tower, one of the city's postcards, are also mandatory visits. Then stroll through the vibrant and colourful Chinatown, where you will find several shops and restaurants. When you feel the need to recovery energies, there's nothing like relaxing in the Devonian Gardens, one of the largest inner urban parks in the world. Restart your itinerary by walking along Stephen Avenue where you can shop in the many stores you will find there.

In a city with a great sports - and rodeo - culture like Calgary, you cannot miss the points of interest related to sports and cowboy's lifestyle. The Scotiabank Saddledome is the city's Olympic stadium and is well worth a visit, as well as the Canada Olympic Park and the Spruce Meadows Equestrian Centre (if you visit Calgary in the first half of July, do not miss the famous local rodeo - the largest in the world!). Then go to the western part of the city where you can visit the Heritage Park Historic Village and get to know better the local history. Callaway Park is Canada's largest amusement park and offers fun for the whole family. Nightlife lovers must visit the 17 Avenue and the Olympic Plaza with its fantastic bars, restaurants and clubs.
