Nestled within view of the Rockies, Calgary lies between two rivers which
meet at the eastern point of the city. Calgary
and the surrounding area has some great western-style communities with fascinating
attractions in beautiful settings. Priddis, Bragg Creek, Cochrane, High
River, among others, all have something special to offer visitors. The
Calgary Stampede is undoubtedly Calgary's best-known visitor attraction. This
event, featuring a large parade, world-class rodeo, and pancake breakfasts,
draws more than a million visitors each year.
