    This excellent horse show facility has events through out the year. They have wonderful food from around the world as well as unique shops to satisfy many interests. It always worthwhile to see if the is an event going on here and to make a trip out to visit. Plan on several hours weather depending to see all there is to see.

    Beautiful, inexpensive family friendly facility. You don't have to love horses to enjoy a day at Spruce Meadows. Always lots more to see and do.

    Thanks! Spruce Meadows I ordered BOT fingerless gloves to help with the arthritis in my hands and I received them 3 days earlier then expected. They are warm and comfortable and fit well. I hope they help with the stiffness and aches. Again thank you for being in stock and speedy service. Other Web sites were averaging 6-8 weeks for delivery.

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.
