==== CALAGRY – SIGHTSEEING
Beautiful scenery of Banff National Park. The downtown region is also home to Prince’s Island Park, an urban park located just north of the Eau Claire district. Directly to the south of downtown is Midtown and the Beltline.
Attractions on the west side of the city include the Heritage Park Historical Village historical park, depicting life in pre-1914 Alberta and featuring working historic vehicles such as a steam train, paddlewheel boat and electric streetcar. The village itself comprises a mixture of replica buildings and historic structures relocated from southern Alberta.
Calgary’s downtown can easily be recognized by its numerous skyscrapers. Some of these structures, such as the Calgary Tower and the Pengrowth Saddledome are unique enough to be symbols of Calgary. Take a ride to the top of the Calgary Tower.
