Calgary Southern Alberta

Calgary’s got small-town heart and big-city diversions. Between street festivals, nightlife and all the things to do outside, the work-hard, play-hard approach is in this city’s veins. Need proof? Every July, the Calgary Stampede transforms the city into a Wild West-inspired playground. It’s 10 days of infinite free pancakes. ● Day Trip: Pedal the city’s 800 kilometres of paved pathways. The path winds past public art and through protected parks and riverside retail neighbourhoods. ● Eat up: There are enough beer halls, cocktail bars, top-notch restaurants and casual dining options to keep you for fed and watered without repeats for a long, long time. ● Explore: Do like the locals do: Make the city your home base for adventures in the Rockies and Badlands.
