Area Details
Here are some quick suggestions for visitors with limited time in the City. The schedule is a suggestion for those who want to see the essence of Calgary in only a couple of days.

- Visit the top of the Calgary Tower, to see the city and the nearby mountains.
- The Glenbow museum features excellent exhibits of native Indian culture, pioneer life, and the oil & gas industry.
- For a quick "breather", visit TD Square with its 4-acre Devonian Gardens rooftop garden park
- If you have children with you, visit the Calgary Zoo (you can take the Northeast L.R.T. line from downtown to the "Zoo" station) to see the Prehistoric Dinosaur Park and the Mountain Wilderness areas. Itís open every single day of the year!
- Feel like checking out Calgary's nightlife? The under-25 set is generally found along 1st Street SW (around 13 Avenue) and 17th Avenue (around 4th Street), with the over-25 set heading to the Eau Claire Market area. If you've got kids, end the day at Eau Claire, where there's not only a movie theatre, there's an IMAX, and a "Cinespace" arcade with virtual reality games (oh, yes, both a Hard Rock and a food court).
- Breakfast at the historical 1886 Cafe.
- See the Canada Olympic Museum at Canada Olympic Park, the site of several events in the 1988 Winter Olympic Games.
- Drive along Sarcee Trail or Crowchild Trail South to Glenmore Park and Weaselhead Flats, where you can see some of Calgary's local wildlife in a natural setting.
- Drive around the reservoir to Heritage Park which is a living history of pioneer Alberta from before the First World War (open seasonally).
- Explore the many shops, restaurants and boutiques along 4th Street SW, 17th Avenue SW (around 8th Street), in Inglewood ("Atlantic Avenue", known for its antique shops), or in Kensington, all of which are a short hop from downtown.

Stampede Week begins the Friday July 6, 2001 and ends on July 15, 2001. The world-televised parade begins at 9 am on the first Friday of Stampede Week, though you many show up as early as 6 or 7 to get a good front-row seat (best lighting for photos is along 9th Avenue). Many Stampede parties (and the various "saloons") already start on the Wednesday or Thursday.
Check out the FREE Stampede Breakfasts outside office buildings between 7 and 9 am (for the workers) and outside many hotels and shopping malls between 9 and 11 (not for the workers!). You can also get chow every morning at "Rope Square" in the Olympic Plaza. Some breakfasts come complete with real Indians, marching bands, gunfighter shootouts, and wagon rides. The biggest breakfasts are held the Saturday after the parade at Chinook Center (in the south) and Market Mall (in the northwest), which typically feed tens of thousands, while listening to a variety of country acts! City Hall holds square dancing, marching bands, and Indian dances at Rope Square) from 10 until noon. From 2 p.m. on, you can party at one of the saloons set up for Stampede Week: the big ones are the Silver Slipper by the Radisson Hotel, and the Golden Garter in the Westin Hotel. You could also stop in at the popular country bars, including Cowboys's, Dusty's, Ranchman's, and the Rocking Horse. Even the "regular" bars get into the act with straw on the floors and live country bands.
