Calgary, a cosmopolitan Alberta city with numerous skyscrapers, owes its rapid growth to its status as the center of Canada’s oil industry. However, it’s still steeped in the western culture that earned it the nickname “Cowtown,” evident in the Calgary Stampede, its massive July rodeo and festival that grew out of the farming exhibitions once presented here.
The Calgary Stampede is a not-for-profit community organization that preserves and celebrates our western heritage, culture and community spirit. It's known for being friendly, inviting, young, energetic, vibrant, modern, diverse and of course the 1988 Olympics, Chinooks, stampede, mountains and oil. It's also known for cold, snow, rednecks, Eastern bashing, urban sprawl and home of Stephen Harper. All in all, it's known to be a great city.
Calgary’s natural setting, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, was a region of natural appeal to the traders, farmers, ranchers and visionaries who settled this country. By the mid-19th century, the Dominion of Canada was taking shape and started looking to solidify the new nation’s claim to the rich foothills plains.
Calgary comes as a pleasant surprise to some people. It’s more affordable to live in Calgary than in many large North American cities. Provincial tax, personal income taxes and inheritance taxes in Alberta are among the lowest in the country, and Albertans’ provincial health care insurance is free. Alberta is the only province in Canada without a sales tax.
Calgarians are good eaters, doing their part to build a progressive local food scene that’s becoming recognized around the world. We’re known for our amazing restaurants, but beyond eating out, there are butchers, bakers and local gin makers who deserve a nod for keeping us well fed at home and on the go.
Calgary is home to many lakes with long stretches of soft sand, pathways, and waterfront to play in except most all of it is private. you need to modify what you consider a beach. The public beaches in Calgary are just really nooks in the river. They’re mostly rocky. They’re dangerous to swim in. And really, it’s just about getting your toes wet.
On the banks of the Bow River, Edworthy Park is a popular place for picnicking. There are playgrounds and hiking trails in the park and, under the pedestrian bridge to cross the Bow River, you’ll find a small stony beach that people will gather on to dip in the water, toss rocks, and cool off.
When it comes to clubbing in Calgary, there is no shortage of eclectic options. Although the city’s nightlife scene and venues go through their fair share of switch ups and gear changes, there are also a few established hot spots that are twice their age in “bar years”, considering how difficult it can be to survive in the fickle club industry. Calgary’s nightlife can feel the part big city, part small town.
