Calgary Mini Guide

I Would Like Some Information About The City
Situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Calgary is an amazing city which attracts over 3 million tourists annually.  The city’s location is in the south of Alberta, Canada and is located in the Grassland region.  With the last confirmed population count of 988,193, this is the third largest municipality in the country and the largest in Alberta.  The main industries in Calgary are the petroleum industry, agriculture and tourism, especially since Calgary was the first Canadian city to host the Olympic Winter Games in 1988.  The climate there is a dry and humid continental climate with long winters and short, fairly warm summers and Calgary is one of the sunniest cities in Canada.

What Can I do in The City?
If art and culture is your thing, there are several theatres including the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium which hosts shows, from ballet to big Broadway Musicals. Several museums are located in the city, including The Glenbow Museum, which is the largest in Western Canada and includes an art gallery.  Due to its closeness to the Rocky Mountains, Calgary has always been a popular hotspot for winter sports and has numerous winter sporting facilities, such as Canada Olympic Park where you can use the luge, do cross-country skiing and snowboarding.  In addition to this, the park serves as a mountain bike trail in summer.

Other popular outdoor activities in Calgary are fly fishing and golfing.  There are parks a plenty there and Nose Hill Park is the largest municipal park in Canada.  For family fun, go to the Calgary Zoo or the Telus World of Science.  Calgary also hosts many annual festivals and events, including the Calgary International Film Festival, Summerstock and the Calgary Stampede, one of the largest festivals in Canada and includes rodeos and chuckwagon races.

I Like to Shop
Downtown Calgary has an eclectic mix of shopping venues.  Other areas to shop are The Core Shopping Centre, Eau Claire Market and Crossroads Flea Market.

What is The Best Way to Get Around?
The bus and rail network takes you to most destinations of interest and the bus network has over 160 routes.  As well as having bikeways on the streets, Calgary has a multi-use path for biking, walking, rollerblading, etc.  Taxis and limousines are also available. 

Are There Many Accommodation Choices?
Take your pick between hotels, motels and hostels, inns and B&Bs, campgrounds and RV parks or reside Canadian style in a guest ranch.

What are the Most Popular Foods in Calgary?
As Calgary is home to many cultures, the selection of restaurants there is very diverse, with one of the most popular cuisines being East and South East Asian.  Also, there are traditional favourites such as the Chinese-Canadian dish of ginger beef, which was invented in Calgary and the Calgarian favourite, Alberta Beef.

What Can I do After Dark?
17 Avenue is well known for its various bars, nightclubs and restaurants and it is there where you can party until the early hours.

Calgary car rentals are very popular with customers who go to Canada to enjoy its world class skiing. The city makes an ideal base for a ski holiday as you can drive to the Rocky Mountain range in around an hour and a half.

There you can find some amazing mountain resorts, many of which have a reputation for being wonderful eco-tourism destinations. Wherever you plan to stay there is plenty of space in Canada. Nearly one million people live in this city which makes it the largest in the Alberta province, but everything is nicely spread out.

Customer questions about Calgary car hire

I'm looking to hire a car in August to drive from Calgary to Vancouver, but was wondering how much an additional driver costs please?

Hi, this depends on the rental agent selected, you can view by clicking 'book' on any car and under 'Extra's' you will be able to add the additional driver and the daily rate will be displayed. Some rentals will include free additional drivers so it's worth checking to see if that works out cheaper overall.
