Welcome to Calgary
With a population of about 1.1 million, Calgary is the largest city in the province of Alberta Canada. It is perched along the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers and offers a thriving retail, energy and tourism sectors. The metropolitan area is home to the second-most corporate head offices in Canada among the nation's 800 largest corporations. The city's main pedestrian districts each have their own character - the original Main Street, Inglewood, packs plenty of history while Uptown 17th Avenue is a young, vibrant neighborhood. Interestingly, Calgary was the first Canadian city to host the Olympic Winter Games.
If you're wondering what to pack, keep in mind that summers are warm and dry, and even winters in Calgary have more hours of sunshine than any other major city in Canada. The famous "Chincook," a mild westerly wind, brings a balmy atmosphere to the city during the cooler months. To get around town, you can capitalize on Calgary rental cars, use the bus system or take the light rail train - all of which run on Mountain Standard Time.

Rising 623 feet from the skyline, Calgary Tower is the city's most famous and identifiable landmark where you can take in panoramic views of the whole city. To see the birthplace of the region, visit Fort Calgary, a National Historic Site that has an interactive center and museum. Another engaging museum is the Military Museum: Mural Mosaic that allows visitors to experience life at the helm in a World War II wheelhouse or walk through a World War I trench. If the subject of war is too heavy for your vacation, the Lougheed House and Beaulieu Gardens provide stunning flowers on a 2.8-acre estate.
Don't miss the Canada Olympic Park, the premier venue of the 1988 Winter Olympics that now serves as a training center for athletes and the general public. This is your chance to train like an Olympian! There are activities for the whole family year-round, including skiing, snowboarding, bobsledding, luging, mountain biking, ziplining and more.
