As the gateway to the Canadian Rockies, Calgary is a former frontier town that has blossomed into a modern urban hotspot.

This fast-growing, fast-moving city of over a million is the beating heart of western Canada: a place where prairie meets mountains, where heritage meets innovation, and where the world comes to be swept off its feet by the sheer majesty of the Canadian landscape.

Calgarians still know how to whoop it up like the cowboys who built this city, and today there’s more than ever to celebrate: interesting markets, sophisticated dining, and entertainment and attractions on par with anything in Canada.
