Cowtown Calgary: World’s Cleanest city
How long : 2 nights
Where I stayed : Hotel Elan, in Calgary
I choose this place because it’s calm and peaceful, a good place to rest after the stress, the plane and the long travel if you’re coming from Europe.
As I said, it’s more a family place, but there’s good things to do. I love walking to discover a city, so I usually get lost and I think it’s a nice way to see things, meet people, etc. I pick up a place, and then I try to go there ;
this time it was the Zoo.
The Zoo of Calgary is quiet huge, and it’s a must see! Count 26 CAD for an adult. But the walk I did wasn’t super interesting except going around the Stampede area, and walking along the Bow, a wide river cutting the city in two parts. You can also take the metro to go there, simple and cheap, I did it to come back after a 30km walk.
The Calgary Tower is the place to see the city from above! Count 18 CAD to go at the top, it’s free if you eat at the restaurant (it’s a rotating restaurant with an awesome view on the city.)
The places I went to :
- Stampede Area
- Calgary Tower and one drink at the restaurant
- Calgary Zoo
- A dinner at Saltlik for some good meat without getting ruined
- A good place to rent the car : Avis, 1616 14TH Av. Northwest in Calgary.
Next stop: Banff
