Intown

View of Mountains from Calgary Tower

There is lots to see and do around Calgary in the city. The city has a fascinating history. There are over 25 museums, lots of parks and river-side greenspace, and activities and sports to keep anybody busy (and happy). We even have a page that has tips on hundreds of things to do with kids.


Nearby Towns & Attractions

Cochrane Ranche View

There's more to Calgary than just Calgary and Banff. Check out the smaller towns around the city. Head out to Cochrane (shown) for the mountain views, the wesetern feel, and the McKay's ice cream. Or you can head west to Bragg Creek, nestled in the foothills and forests, or south to Okotoks and Black Diamond, or north east to Drumheller and the Dinosaur bone rich badlands.

Of course if you want to check out Banff and the Alberta & BC Rockies, FoundLocally has a site just for you!


Accommodation

Westin Hotel in downtown Calgary

There are many accommodation options in the area, from first class hotels, to motels, beds & breakfast, long-term accommodation, wilderness lodges and camping.


Away: Travelling Out of Town

We even have lots of tips for getting away, including other countries' Online Travel Offices, links to travel guidebooks' web sites. We even have links to sites that can help you plan a honeymoon, eloped wedding, or romantic getaway. To round things out we have information about Canada & US Customs, a listing of Canadian embassies and consulates around the world, and an overview of our airport(s) and links to airports around the world (so you can check what to do during connections between flights)


Sustainable Travel & Eco-Tourism

Going Green: Eco-friendly content!

We recogize that travel inherently uses a lot of energy and a lot of resources, since it involves moving us (and our luggage) large distances around the world. Here are a number of suggestions for reducing our impact as well as our "carbon footprint".
