How to Spend 1 Day in Calgary
In the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, many travelers pass through Calgary on their way to Banff and Jasper national parks. But the city itself has plenty of attractions, whether you’re visiting in the warm summer or the snowy winter. Here’s how to get the most out of 24 hours in Calgary.

Morning: Go Back in History
Head to Heritage Park Historical Village, one of Canada’s largest living history museums. Just south of Downtown Calgary, the pre-1915 buildings and staff in period dress transport visitors back in time to the Canadian Wild West. Kids might especially enjoy a wagon or steam train ride.

Afternoon: Taste Calgary
Explore the neighborhoods of Calgary on a food tour, and find out what makes Canadian cuisine unique. Sample different dishes while walking around a market or some of Calgary’s most historic areas. Travelers with kids might prefer to check out the Calgary Zoo instead, home to more than 1,000 animals belonging to more than 100 species.

Night: Enjoy the View
The tallest building in the city, and a distinctive landmark, the Calgary Tower is a fun evening destination. Get there while there’s still daylight, to possibly catch sight of the Rocky Mountains in the distance. Stay for dinner at the revolving Sky 360 restaurant—or just take in the view from the observation deck, then head downtown to eat.
