Calgary is Alberta’s largest city and Canada’s fourth largest city with 1,220,000 people. Lying between the edges of the prairies and the Rocky Mountains, it is a popular destination for outdoor activities and events as well as historic and cultural sights. In 1988, Calgary hosted the Winter Olympics. Visitors can still enjoy the Olympic Village, where you can ski, snowboard, and visit major landmarks. Every summer in July, Calgary puts on the famous Calgary Stampede, which features a spectacular rodeo, nightly fireworks, and many more festivities for 10 straight days.
Well known neighbourhoods worth visiting are 17th Avenue (great for shops, restaurants and bars), eclectic and ethnic Forest Lawn International Avenue and for a little bit more culture like galleries and boutiques, try Inglewood. Calgary is a great place to live. We’d recommend it to anybody! When you need high quality, reliable movers in Calgary, give BC Alberta Movers a call.
