Calgary, Alberta, Canada is only aprox. 80 km(50m) from the Canadian Rockies. With a population of over 1,000,000 it is the largest municipality in Alberta and 3rd largest city in Canada.
Downtown is small but there are some pretty great places. Uptown 17th ave is great for shopping, as well as the Core (TD, the Bay, Scotia Center, Holt Renfrew). Great restaurants, pubs, bars and lots of oil companies.
Great pot in this city, and great prices. Fun club scene, and great pubs.
Calgary Stampede comes every second week of July, and its the only time this city lives up to its hick stereotype. Alberta is full of small municipalities with huge trucks, fields of cows and horses, and more liquor stores per capita then anywhere else but the larger cities within Alberta are not anything like this despite what you may have heard.
The summer time weather can usually be very hot and dry, but only rarely reaches 30C. It commonly rains and even snows during summer, but it is likely that it will clear up within 15 minutes. Winter is cold here, I kid you not we have at least 6 or 7 months of it here too. With temperatures dropping well below 0, too -25 and lower.
Commonly called: Calgs, Ctown, Cowtown, YYC, 401
Pronounced Cal-grie not Cal-gary
