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.
