This culturally rich Canadian city serves up outdoor fun — along with culinary magic.
Calgary, Alberta, is so much more than a gateway to nearby Banff National Park and home to the world-famous Calgary Stampede. Beyond the Rockies and rodeos, the city itself offers vibrant cultural districts, especially downtown and along the RiverWalk lining the Bow River. And there’s a spirited culinary movement that’s serving up locally sourced beef, Asian-inspired food and so much more — all of which are best enjoyed with one of Calgary’s own craft beers.
