Product Description:

Calgary, Alberta's largest city, is situated where the prairies end and the foothills begin. As such, it is the eastern gateway to the Rocky Mountains and an important centre of trade and tourism for the western prairies.

It is your most likely point of access for Banff and Jasper, and a worthwhile destination in its own right.

Calgary has a fairly dense downtown, ringed by inner city neighborhoods laid out on a grid pattern for roughly 30-40 blocks. These inner city districts often have unique characteristics and are worth wandering through, for the visitor with some time to spend in the city.

Wink Travel Guides introduce you to the best world travel destinations, in a clear and concise way, illustrated by photos.
