Calgary lets you delve into the past and refreshes you by letting you experience the best of this era as well.
Calgary is the perfect mix of an urban playground and wild wilderness. As a resident, you enjoy the two dichotomously different experiences.
Go back a couple of centuries to discover Calgary's past with the Wild Heritage Tour. You can rent a horse or visit a guest ranch and enjoy the fresh air while riding alongside the majestic Rocky Mountains, or trot at a slow pace to enjoy every moment of the conversation. You can enjoy role-playing as well, as you use your imagination to pretend you are a cowboy. Why not plan a car trip to the rolling foothills of the mountains? No trip to Calgary's past would be complete without a visit to the Historic Village, in Historic Park, which is the largest of its kind. It recreates the pre-1915 era with ease. The sixty-six acres of fun include the S.S. Movie Sternwheeler, an antique midway, and a locomotive train. To watch the handsome men in uniform, the famous "Mounties," a trip to the Fort Calgary Historic Park is a must. It also gives you a chance to dine at the elegant Deane House, the perfect setting for lunch, or you can spice up your meal by planning a murder mystery dinner.
Calgary offers you the perfect opportunity to live out your fantasies. Shop with ease at the Stephen Avenue Walk National Historic District, which has around a thousand shops, as well as some of the best restaurants and pubs in Calgary.
To catch the best view of the city, Calgary Tower puts your heads in the clouds - literally. At a height of 189 meters, you and your date can get cozy and share a view of the city and the Canadian Rockies. Stroll through the peaceful Devonian Gardens, an indoor garden spanning three levels in the downtown's TD Square. The garden boasts 20,000 plants, 135 varieties of flora, waterfalls, fountains, fish, and turtles.
If you are both art lovers, then visit the art central, which brings together artist studios, galleries, and arts and crafts, along with dining. If it is music that feeds your fancy, visit Cantos Music Foundation, where the pianos used by Elton John and Bernie Taupin are showcased.
