The largest city in Alberta, Calgary sits in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and is roughly four to five hours north of Montana along the United States border. Edmonton, Alberta’s capital, is three hours directly north of Calgary. The Calgary Airport is in the northeast quadrant of the city and 25 minutes from downtown. Calgary is spread out, with many of the outdoor adventures spread outside the city, so a car is recommended, but public transportation is available within the city by bus or light rail.
Calgary is often used as the launching point to explore Banff and Jasper National Parks. Calgary offers excellent urban delights of its own with a little bit of Western charm thrown in to keep it grounded. The Calgary Stampede is one of the biggest festivals in Canada, taking place over the course of 10 days every July. Despite this, Calgary’s reputation as “Cowtown” is being mellowed and balanced with the riches of a thriving oil and gas industry, in addition to an up-and-coming arts and culinary scene. The city is home to a positively surprising amount of public art installations and busking is a very common sight — especially in the summer months. Calgary also has no less than eight colleges and universities in the area.
