Calgary is often just your port of entry into Canada or your departure airport, however Calgary does offer something else, especially in July – when Calgary lives for the Stampede! Every July the city comes alive for the “Greatest Show on Earth”.

For the rest of the year, it is a modern city, one of the fastest growing in Canada due to the Alberta oil industry.

Highlights include the Calgary tower, Calgary Zoo and Olympic Park.
