Attractions in Calgary

Calgary might be a city known for extraordinary restaurants and nightlife, but there is also a lot to do during the day. What makes these daytime activities even better is that the temperature never gets to unmanageable levels in Calgary. That is, of course, as long as you plan on visiting in a season other than winter.

The most popular attraction in Calgary is The Calgary Zoo. There are over 1000 animals at this zoo, which has helped make it the best zoo in Canada. One of the feature attractions at the zoo is Kamala, which is an elephant that has learned how to paint. Kamala draws large crowds, so if you’d like a good shot of her, try to get to the zoo early. The Calgary Zoo also has six acres of botanical gardens and a prehistoric park. There is something here for everyone, which is why it’s the number one attraction in Calgary. The Calgary Zoo is open year-round.

Another great attraction in Calgary is Stampede Park. This is a unique experience. You will find everything from a rodeo to an agricultural fair. During the day, there are many different types of races. The most popular are the chuck-wagon races. At night, be sure to catch the comic show. It’s funny and appropriate for all ages.

Heritage Park is a mix between an amusement park and a historic village. It’s 127 acres of fun and beauty. It has also received excellent reviews from hundreds of travelers. Another great park in Calgary is Prince’s Island Park. This is located in the middle of the Bow River. Here, you will have an opportunity to walk, jog, bike, or fish amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Calgary.

Other popular attractions in Calgary include Spruce Meadows, the Aero Space Museum, and Shakers Family Fun Centre. Spruce Meadows is a horseback riding stable. The Aero Space Museum is self-explanatory. And Shakers Family Fun Centre offers a wide range of activities, including go-karts, miniature golf, water wars, a playground, a climbing wall, and dozens of arcade games.
