Remember how you felt last winter?
You were cold. You deemed your thickest winter jacket as ineffective. You didn’t want to go outside and found yourself faced with nonstop views of…well, just snow. And it doesn’t take long for that to get old.
So it goes without saying that you’re eager to get outside this summer. You can finally enjoy the luxury of Calgary’s most resplendent views that will almost certainly make for beautiful lifelong memories.
The only problem? Some of us feel burnt out after all that cold weather, so we don’t know where to find our city’s best vistas.
To help you out, we’ve created a list of six places you need to visit in Calgary this summer to enjoy amazing views.
The Peace Bridge
There’s a reason why people visit this place time and time again. You can either stand on it or stick to your car, but either way you’ll get to enjoy the breathtaking views of Calgary while the sun slowly starts to set.
Tom Campbell’s Hill Nature Park
Get ready to chill out during the morning, day, or night for the sole purpose of enjoying the gigantic views that span from the zoo to downtown.
Nose Hill Park
Enjoy unobstructed views of Calgary just a 10-minute drive from Sonoma to Nose Hill Park. You’ll want to bring some food to munch on – not to mention a hot date. The two of you can watch the sunset hover right above the Rocky Mountains. Who knows, maybe you’ll even see the Northern Lights.
Simply beautiful. Located on the southeastern end of Salisbury Street, the iconic Scotsman’s Hill is perfect for both watching the sun rise and set.
This is definitely one of the top locations to look out over the city because you’ll get a view of the downtown cityscape along with views of the Beltline and Mission communities. You can watch it all from a bench and sip some tea at the same time.
Edworthy Park along Edworthy Street
If you’re looking for a view of Calgary then this is the perfect spot – whether the sun is rising or setting. Marvel at the full moon at night and be proud of the city that you get to call your own.
