Calgary & Area | Travel & Tourism Information Guide

Want to see the face of Calgary? Pop by at lunchtime. Amble down part of its 460-km pathway system and you'll see thousands of folks cycling, jogging, fishing, in-line skating or chatting on a park bench.

Calgary pulses - with a youthful, entreprenuerial spirit due primarily to its burgeoning oil and gas industry, proceeds from which helped forge its downtown glass and steel cathedrals of commerce. But it's not all about new money. You'll find the 'Heart of the New West' still respects its humble roots - most evident in the 10-day July whoop-up known as the Calgary Stampede. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Calgary's skyline is framed by the Canadian Rocky Mountains, an hour's drive away.
