Calgary

Often referred to as the "Gateway to the Rockies," Calgary is one of the largest cities in the Canadian province of Alberta and offers a unique blend of great travel deals along with unbeatable scenery and interesting attractions. Approximately 1.1 million people live in this city, meaning that there is always something interesting going on and there is never a dull moment. Calgary is made up of many different distinct, interesting neighborhoods that each brings their own benefits to the table - as well as some great vacation deals.

Being in a northern part of the world, Calgary definitely experiences its own fair share of heavy snowfall and low temperatures during the winter months. Compared with other major Canadian cities, Calgary is more on the sunny side; however, the best time to visit is anytime from the end of May to the end of September. Summers here are generally pleasant, sunny and warm; occasional thunderstorms are generally short lived and shouldn't get in the way of your plans too much.

How to Get There

Calgary International Airport (YYC) is the obvious choice for people who are flying into Calgary. Airfare deals are easy to come by, since it’s a fairly busy airport. If you were to fly in to Calgary and needed a rental car, there are plenty of great car deals to be had at rental agencies in and around the airport.

If arriving in Calgary by car, Highway #1 - the TransCanada Highway - is your likeliest bet for getting in and out easily. From the south, Highway #2 is the usual route, and those heading up to Calgary from the United States should use Interstate 15.

Where to stay

Whether you're interested in luxury accommodations or more reasonably priced places to stay, there is always an abundance of hotel deals to choose from in Calgary. The Hyatt Regency Calgary (700 Centre St SE, Calgary) is a superb choice if money is not an issue and you want the absolute best in terms of service and well appointed rooms. A less expensive but very decent option within the Calgary city limits would be The Westin Calgary (320 4 Ave SW, Calgary), which boasts many great amenities at very wallet friendly prices. Finally, very cheap accommodation in Calgary can be found at Canada's Best Value Inn (2416 16 Avenue NW, Calgary).

What to do

A nice introduction to Calgary can be had by paying a visit to the Calgary Tower. Although not as high as the skyscrapers in some other North American cities, the Calgary Tower offers a stunning panoramic view of the city from a pleasingly lofty height. You can learn more about the history of Calgary and Alberta in general by stopping in at the Glenbow Museum; with more than twenty galleries to explore, you can easily spend the better part of a day there. Families with children will especially get a kick out of the Calgary Zoo, which has more than 1,000 animals to appreciate and learn more about. Discover the rich history of Calgary by heading over to the Fort Calgary Historic Park. It is situated where the Bow and Elbow Rivers meet, and is a natural place to find out more about this phenomenal city and its rich, intricate history.

Where to eat

If you come to Calgary, make sure that you're hungry. As many travel websites will eagerly point out, there are plenty of great restaurants and places to enjoy fine dining in Calgary. For example, if taking advantage of all of those great vacation deals has left you with a bit of money to burn, try spending it at La Chaumiere (139 17th Ave. SW, Calgary), which boasts an impressive wine cellar and unbeatable French cuisine. A more moderate but equally tasty place to eat in Calgary is Nick's Steakhouse (2430 Crowchild Trail NW, Calgary), which features some of the best steaks in the city at reasonable and affordable prices. Finally, cheap eats can be had at Chicken On The Way (1443 Kensington Road NW, Calgary), an honest-to-goodness Calgary institution with rock bottom prices and mouth watering food.
