Calgary a fun place to visit

Flew into Calgary just in time to see the Stampede Parade.
Great city with a very western feel - the locals were great with a friendly greeting "Hi Guys - How you doing?"
Friendly, relaxed, busling & laid back. Modern shopping malls compete with traffic free areas with bars & cowboy & indian stores.
Grab your cowboy hat hitch on your boots & come on in!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great place to stop & rest after a long flight

    This Calgary tower with a glass bottom is impressive! I had once that feeling in Croatia, while swimming in shallow water and suddenly, there was the rim of an underwater cliff and deep water! Nice to meet a Prime Minister and Women's Liberation heroes!

    Nemorino should have gotten off of the train because Calgary has alot to offer. You were very lucky to see the Calgary Stampede. A great page.

    Yes, it does look like a fun place to visit. (Especially if you like cowboy hats, LOL.) Seems to me I went through Calgary on the train once, but I didn't get off.

    Thanks for a lovely page on a city I visited in 88! It must have changed a lot since then.

    Very good page and tips. Calgary seems to me as a very friendly city since I watched on TV Winter Olympic Games which took place there.
