Calgary, Alberta: Glitzy City at the Base of the Canadian Rockies
After oil reserves were discovered in 1947, things around Calgary changed in a hurry. The city's quaint downtown sprouted skyscrapers, and more than half a million new residents arrived to claim their piece of the pie. Later, the 1988 Winter Olympics made Calgary a household name. You can learn more about C-Town's recent history at the popular Glenbow Museum.
Today's Calgary is glitzy and modern—it's been called the North American Dubai—but a prized location at the base of the Canadian Rockies means outdoor adventures in Banff, Lake Louise, and Canmore are a quick drive away. There's lots of nature to enjoy in town, too. Start at the Calgary Zoo, Canada's most-visited zoo, which houses 120 species in enclosures inspired by the animals' natural habitats. Cyclists, joggers, and swimmers flock to Fish Creek Provincial Park, one of the largest urban green spaces in North America. To mix with locals, spend an afternoon at the beach at Sikome Lake.
