"Great Views" Calgary Tower Tip by krissyM

Calgary Tower, Calgary: 25 reviews and 44 photos


Officially opened June 30th 1968, the 'Tower' has become the City of Calgary's most famous and identifiable physical landmark. One of the first Towers of its kind, the Calgary Tower offers the best view in Calgary.

Throughout the 1988 Winter Olympic Games, a flame burned at the top of the Tower, making the Calgary Tower the World's Largest Olympic Torch. The torch used during the Olympic games was designed after the Tower. The torch is still lit today for special occasions, like Canada Day and during the Calgary Flames race for the Stanley Cup.

At the top of the Tower is a revolving restaurant which serves great, if expenisve food.
