Calgary Condo Rentals in Canada’s Sunniest Major City
Oh, Canada. I’ve spent some time in your great country but sometimes I have to live vicariously through others during their travels. For instance, my uncle and his band recently toured the Western U.S. and Canada and while in Alberta, he asked for my assistance in finding Calgary condo rentals. Speaking of, Rent Calgary is supporting my travel habit in exchange for me sharing information.
The only time I’ve visited Alberta was a visit to Waterton Lakes National Park which is immediately north of Glacier National Park in Montana. I haven’t explored Calgary but would love to attend the “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth,” the Calgary Stampede. Held each July, this 10-day festive event includes the world’s largest rodeo, chuck wagon racing, concerts and tons more of giddy up fun.
During the winter, you can walk 18k (more than 11 miles!) in downtown Calgary without going outside. What??? An inside walkway called Plus 15 connects 100 buildings with 60 suspended bridges in an enclosed suspended walkways 15 feet above the ground. This design feature is unique to Calgary. I’m really surprised other cities haven’t followed.
Here’s a bright spot, with an average of more than 2,400 hours of bright sun annually, Calgary is Canada’s sunniest major city.
Other reasons to visit and/or live in Calgary? How about tender grain-fed beef? The city is known for its beef and 67 percent of the beef consumed in Canada hails from Alberta. Mmm, beef.
Calgary, hope we meet soon. Have you been? What’s a must-see thing I should do?
