Why Visit Calgary
Calgary has recently gained a reputation as one of Canada’s most dynamic urban centers with a robust arts and culinary scene. Its meteoric rise as a metropolis has even begun to catch international attention. In 2016, the Economist Intelligence Unit rated Calgary the fifth best livable city on Earth.
When to Visit Calgary
Don’t be put off by Calgary's unpredictable winter weather. While it’s undoubtedly frosty, Calgarians cut the cold with events like the Hot Chocolate Fest or tubing at one of Canada’s largest tube parks. In summer, the biggest draw is the Stampede. The party atmosphere is fun even if you’re not a Wild West fan.
Calgary has a typical prairie climate: dry, windy, and somewhat unpredictable. The city often experiences warm blasts of air that cause a sudden—and welcome—bump in temperatures. Winter temps rarely exceed 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer's average is a pleasant 66 degrees.
