About the City
Calgary is a city located near the southern end of the Canadian province of Alberta. Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, it is a city that once held Olympic dreams and wonders. With a metropolitan population larger than 1.3 million, it is the largest and most diverse city in the province.
Natural Beauty of Calgary
Because Calgary is located in Canada, as well as near the Canadian Rockies, it has cold winters and one must be prepared for winter weather and activities. Because of the weather patterns on the Eastern slope of the mountains it is considered an arid region; therefore, making the air quite dry year-round. The summers can be quite comfortable with low temperatures being near 50 degrees. Also, because it is a former Olympic city, there are many recreation facilities available for public use.
Metropolitan Area and Attractions
The metropolitan area holds many attractions and festivals throughout the year. Some of these include The Calgary Stampede, the Folk Music, Lilac, an international arts festival, and other festivals devoted to the arts of writing and speech. Not only does it host these art festivals, but also it is known for one of the most well-known rodeos in Canada, and one of the largest Caribbean festivals in the country. One of the world’s fastest speed skating tracks was built on the grounds of one of the universities for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympic games, which enabled the city to host international winter sports competitions as recent as this past September.
