Get your cowboy boots out - it’s Stampede time.

Yes, Calgary is the home of the world famous Calgary Stampede, where honky tonkers from all over gather for some buckin’ broncos, beer drinking, and do-si-do-ing.

But aside from this trademark summertime festival, Calgary has also made quite a name for itself due to its attractive lifestyle for young professionals.

The downtown core has been growing rapidly, and the number of trendy spots to visit is off the charts. Visit one of the buzzing beer halls or hipster coffee shops to get a taste of what this burgeoning Prairie hub has to offer - or simply ride your bike along the Bow River to take in all the sights.

Pro tip: Make sure to pack for any weather no matter the time of year, because Calgary is notorious for snowing one day and bringing suntan weather the next.

Calgary is also a fantastic launchpad for all your Rocky Mountain adventures, with just an hour-long drive separating the downtown core from the lush mountain range, as well as charming slope-side towns like Banff and Canmore. So don’t forget to bring your snowboard, the peaks are calling!

Whether you’re in it for the active outdoor life or all the urban shenanigans you can handle, Calgary’s got your back. And we’re here to tell you exactly where to start. Stay tuned to this page for our Calgary travel guides.
