Located in the south of the Alberta province of Canada, right at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Calgary guarantees to provide wholesome entertainment for your family. A city with a cosmopolitan population, Calgary provides its visitors an eclectic mix of fun-n-frolic – thrilling outdoor sports and a vibrant cultural scene.
The city is considered to be one of the sunniest in Canada. However, due to its proximity to the mountains, there can be a nip in the air after sunset.
The Calgary Stampede attracts the largest number of tourists. Held annually in July, the city is at its best when it goes western for ten days. Known as one of the grandest outdoor festival in the world, the Calgary Stampede lets you relive the cowboy days with the Rodeo and the Chuckwagon Race! Right at the Stampede Grounds, Calgary’s Pengrowth Saddledome plays host to sports like hockey (Calgary Flames), junior hockey (Calgary Hitmen) and lacrosse (Calgary Roughnecks). And ever since it hosted the 1988 Winter Olympic Games, Calgary maintains a state of the art facility for winter sports activities like snowboarding, skiing and bobsleighing. The Calgary’s Telus World of Science and the Calgary Zoo is a favorite haunt for kids and science lovers. The Calgary Tower is another favorite among Calgary’s sightseeing places. From 160 meters in the air, visitors are granted with a breath-taking view of the city and rise of the imposing Rocky Mountains. For those who appreciate art and culture, Calgary supports an energetic professional and amateur theatre scene.
