Things to Do in Calgary

Glenbow Museum
This museum brings together art and cultural history. In its permanent exhibitions you’ll learn about the traditions of the indigenous Niitsitapi people of Alberta: from their decorative tipi tents to story robes – pictorial tales painted onto bison hides. Meanwhile, 19th-century paintings by Paul Kane and Cornelius Krieghoff detail the changes that came with frontier expansion.
Heritage Park Historical Village
History buffs will feel at home in this interactive conservation where Calgary’s past is brought to life. Explore the 10 hectares of recreated town, where all buildings are from 1915 or earlier, and include a church, school and fort. Costumed interpreters are on hand to answer any queries. Daily demonstrations and over 180 attractions and exhibits will keep you immersed and captivated.
Calgary Tower
Standing 191 metres tall in the heart of downtown Calgary, this colossal observation tower is a focal point for the city. Constructed in 1967 to celebrate Canada’s Centennial, it also sheltered the Olympic torch in 1988. A revolving restaurant sits atop the tower and serves dinner over unbeatable views of the city and the Rocky Mountains.

Very Good
The Mountain view. Downtown walkways and the energy of the people moving through them. Even with the oppressive governments, provincial and federal, you can feel the optimism.

A scenic city. Very convenient to me, a person who does not have a driving license. You go around places using the public transport system. The river walk is wonderful. And I like the weather in March.

Calgary is beautiful to begin with; add the charm of downtown bistros, shopping and pubs. Museums and theatre and gorgeous walking trails! Sigh... I miss it already.

We live in Canmore and visit the city twice a month. We don't like the winter weather and the heavy trafic. Great shopping. Love Market Mall and Moxies restaurant.

I am a former Calgarian and I am very fond of the city and surrounding area so probably my comments are not applicable.

I used to live in Calgary many years ago, and there is so many different area of the City to find whatever one wants. Also people are friendly.

Have $ and vehicle to stop when you want ,where you can pull over safely to enjoy the views.

Heavy traffic and complicated road system. Needs more attractions for short time visitors.

I think it's a great opportunity to educate people on animal life.

weren't there long enough as we were flying out from there

Booking.com asked travelers...

Why do you recommend Calgary for food?

Many fine restaurants, lots of choices.

Lots of things to do with children
