Calgary is a beautiful city located in the Alberta Province of Canada. The city lies at the confluence of the Elbow River and Bow River. There are many tourist destinations in downtown Calgary like art galleries, shopping centers, museums, resorts, parks, and gardens. Our brief stay with our friends Tommy & Sarah who run http://www.roofing518.com/ was amazing. It is a beautiful city and the experience was quite adventurous. Besides the beautiful outdoors, the vibrant nightlife and luxurious dining venues keep the tourists entertained throughout the year. A few exciting places to visit in the city are as follows:
- Studio Bell
Studio Bell was established by the National Music Centre located in Downtown East Village. It is famous as Calgary’s National Museum of music history. Here you can find a collection of over 2000 musical instruments and relics. Some of the famous displays are Elton John’s pianos, TONTO synthesizer, and Rolling Stones Mobile Studio. We had lots of fun at the interactive instruments gallery. The volunteers helped us with different musical instruments and also educated us on the history of their oldest exhibits.
- Heritage Park Historical Village
Located at 1900 Heritage Drive, the Heritage Park Historical Village is the most visited destination in the city. Established in the year 1964, the museum is built on 127 acres of land. If you are in Calgary, you should definitely visit this place. With over a 100 historical exhibits the museum continues to be Canada’s largest museum of living history. The top attractions of the place are a steam locomotive, a roundhouse, a paddle steamer, an antique midway with park rides, and an aboriginal encampment.
- Bow River
If you appreciate natural scenic attractions, you should certainly visit the banks of the Bow River where they have beautiful walkways adjacent to the shoreline. The waterfront path is popular among bikers and hikers. Fly fishing is one of the major tourist activities in this area. The view of the mountains and the foliage from the walkway is truly captivating.
