Kick up your heels in July at "The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth", The Calgary Stampede. Join the crowds cheering on the cowboys at "The Half Million Dollar Rodeo." Enjoy an outstanding horseback riding experience any time of the year or visit an attraction dedicated to the history of the ranchers and ranch hands.

Calgarians will treat you with warm western hospitality during your vacation, convention or business meeting. Relax in the pleasant surroundings of a wide selection of accommodation — ultra-modern suites, quaint bed and breakfasts, or moderately-priced hotels and motels.

Bring the kids. Stay an extra day in Canada's child-friendly city. There's plenty you can do to turn that business meeting into a family adventure.
