About Calgary

Originally an outpost for the mounted police, Calgary has recently transformed into a commercial powerhouse and a top-tier destination for visitors of Canada. That said, the city’s rural traces are still quite prominent, making it a great spot for everyone. One of the most iconic destinations in the city is the WinSport Canada Olympic Park, which is a tribute to the 1988 Winter Olympics. Interested travelers could take up ski lessons here, or they can simply stroll around Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, which houses the largest collection in the competition’s history. Another great destination you should check out is the Glenbow Museum, which features amazing collections on the First Nations as well as military memorabilia. If you simply want to stroll around and enjoy a good view, Prince's Island Park, with tree-lined trails, will also be a great choice.

Its nickname Cowtown is true: Alberta beef is the staple local specialty. If you are looking for a bite of this amazing delicacy, head over to Silver Inn Restaurant. Another great local favorite is cheese buns from Glamorgan Bakery, which sells out quite quickly.
