Calgary is such a delightfully gorgeous town. With the booming economy in Calgary – powered by the Oil sands, strong agriculture, and tourism – housing can be difficult to find. Of course, you’re going to need a place to hang your hat. That’s where Rent Calgary would be useful.
What’s there to do in Calgary, you ask? Lots of stuff, I say! There are Calgary Flames games. Go to the raucous Saddledome. Watch Iggy (Jarome Iginla) and the boys muck and grind it out and have a famous (perhaps infamous?) heroin beer. The world famous Calgary Stampede comes to town in July. Known to many as honky-tonk Mardi Gras, it’s a non-stop party! Are you a football fan? Then catch a Stampeders game!
Situated in the area where the beautiful Alberta prairies meet the Rocky Mountain foothills, there is plenty to do outdoors, too. Skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking…who wouldn’t want to live in Calgary? The Bow River is fantastic for fly-fishing. It’s also situated close to Banff and Lake Louise for even more outdoorsy fun.
Are you more of a city person? The bustling downtown area has tons of nightlife. Bars, restaurants, clubs…plus a ton of theatres, a philharmonic, the Calgary Opera, and a ballet company. How about a visit to Heritage Park Historical Village? It’s a historical park, depicting life in pre-1914 Alberta which features working historic vehicles including a steam train, paddlewheel boat, and an electric streetcar. The village itself is a mixture of replica buildings and historic structures relocated from southern Alberta
All in all, Calgary is a great place to be!
