This has been my hometown for almost 30 years. It does not have great cultural institutions like major cities such as London, Paris, Rome or New York, but the proximity to the mountains and all the outdoor pursuits they offer are a major reason to visit. While here, there are some pretty good restaurants to enjoy.Recommended for:

Calgary - Cow Town, the home of The Flames. The biggest city in Alberta is the start, end and highlight of many a trip to this neck of the woods. Home to the Stampede a vibrant restaurant and bar scene and a stack of cowboy culture. Giddy-up!Recommended for:

This is now (2013) my home base again after being out and about this beautiful world. I have lived in this city for half of my life. This city is only a hour away from the mountains and the best skiing in the world. It is also home to many festivals and of course the Calgary Stampede. Lots to do, many many different cultures mixed together, great food, music, theater and dance. The city have a Louge and an in-city ski hill for winter fun and lots of golf courses in the summer and parks etc.Recommended for:

Good place for ice wine and nature. Love the Lake Louis in the national park. Went there twice, once in summer, once in winter. I love the winter better, just because you get to ice-skate on a lake IN THE NATURE. And there is also a hot spring pool around too.

Great town. Stayed in the local Fairmont Hotel - as with others in this chain, a fine old railway hotel. The trains still run right by. Found a wonderful cheese & wine bar on the pedestrian mall: select your cheese from a list of several dozen. Nice. Nice small city to stroll around, and a gateway into the mountains. I would like to go back for the famous rodeo.

Magnifique ville, très propre et pleine de passerelle, Calgary donnaient des contraventions aux piétons en 1992, qui traversent pas la rue au feux de circulation.
La vie au centre ville de Jour est calme, avec un grand parc où tous les jours les travailleurs viennent y manger leurs lunchs.
Je suis allé à Banff, c'est pas loin en auto.

i dislike Calgary for everything its worth, you would think the place you were raised would be the most love in your heart but this is not the case, there nothing but Crap to deal with here, the laws are EFFED. you deal with social services pretty much if you have a child, and if your a good parent you will lose them if your a bad drugged up parent you get to keep them THATS how messed Calgary is

We flew into Calgary on our way to Banff and the Canadian Rockies, and found it surprisingly nice. we only had one afternoon and evening there before heading out to the mountains, and it was a very pleasant evening. it was nice walking down the streets, and dinner was good, too. would have spent a couple of extra days there if we had the time. oh well next time i guess...
