Calgary with its cowboy feel and just over 1.2 million inhabitants is the third largest municipality in Canada. Calgary and its attractions are where you’re more likely to feel like a cowboy than anywhere else in Canada. Settled by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in 1875 the city has grown on the back of the railways and later the oil and energy industries. The region was inhabited by First Nations peoples for as many as 11,000 years before colonial settlement.

The growth in the energy sector has resulted in Calgary becoming a modern cosmopolitan city while it still maintains it small town charm. On a summers day relax with a picnic of local cuisine in Eau Claire or Prince’s Island Parks. Culture and history seekers should head to one of the many museums including Heritage Park Historical Village. Traditionally just a launching point for the Rockies, Calgary now provides travellers a great insight into city life with a Canadian twist.

If you’re in town during the Calgary Stampede, you’ll find cowboys galore and plenty of unique rodeo style events and attractions to explore. The remainder of the year the cowboy theme is still dominant and you’ll still find plenty of great food, drink and classic Canadian culture.
