Calgary holidays offer a combination of urban attractions and outdoor recreation. Within the city, performing arts venues and restaurants orbit Stephen Avenue Walk while shopping and nightlife defines Uptown 17th Avenue.
Central to the city’s recreational life, the Bow River corridor is also the setting for festivals and major attractions. Several wilderness parks and ski resorts are a short drive away. A one-hour jaunt into the Canadian Rockies puts you among the rugged peaks of Banff National Park, with Lake Louise just a little further. The moon-like badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park and the prehistoric beasts of Drumheller’s Royal Tyrell Museum are also close by.
