Calgary

Stampede City

Known as the "Stampede City" thanks to its world-famous annual rodeo, Calgary remains a tale of two cities. While the city's western side features the mighty Rockies as a backdrop, its inner core boasts a modern skyline of concrete-and-steel buildings housing the headquarters of some of Canada's biggest corporations. A tour of Calgary lets you discover a cosmopolitan urban center with a traditional western soul, a tourism hub conveniently placed to offer quick access to some of the country's biggest national parks. In a city that hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics, your Calgary holiday can also include visits to outstanding ski slopes and a vast network of cross-country trails located just an hour's drive outside the city. Plan a trip to Canada easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
