Tours & Tickets
Alberta’s largest city, Calgary, lies at the division between smooth prairie land and the jagged peaks of the Rocky Mountains, and for many travelers is the jumping off point to popular ski destinations such as Jasper and Banff. Or, you're part of the million plus cowgirls or cowboys who descend upon Calgary in July for the Calgary Stampede, the most famous rodeo in the world. For kids, the Telus World of Science Calgary, Calgary Zoo, Calaway Park (one of Canada’s largest amusement parks) and the Olympic Plaza won’t fail to impress. Couples can take advantage of the day strolling the beautiful grounds of the Prince’s Island Park and later grabbing tickets to a Calgary Flames hockey match in the Pengrowth Saddledome. The growth of Calgary has led to impressive hotel upgrades, and luxury digs are plentiful. Try a night at the theater; Calgary has a well-developed amateur and professional performing arts scene, or fall in the streets at one of Calgary’s myriad clubs or bars.
Calgary Tower is a landmark in Calgary. Standing on the transparent glass viewing platform of Calgary Tower, the skyscrapers in the Central Business District are under your foot, in the distance is the Rocky Mountains covered with white snow. From Calgary Tower, you can walk to the commercial pedestrian street on Steven Avenue.
The venue is an inner-city park that offers lots of green space, restaurants, and shopping.
This event is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival that happens every July.
