As Canada’s third largest city and Alberta’s largest city, Calgary offers apartment dwellers many exciting choices when it comes to activities. The Calgary Stampede—a 10-day festival that occurs every July—is so popular that it has earned Calgary the nickname of the “Stampede City.” Residents and visitors alike can enjoy a 360 degree view of the city atop the observation decks of the Calgary Tower. Calgary city apartment rentals also provide the opportunity to visit the famous Calgary Zoo which contains more than 1,000 animals or the area’s many parks, including Fish Creek Provincial Park or Heritage Park Village Historic Park. Many residents of Calgary apartments for rent also enjoy visiting Fort Calgary which was constructed on the site of an 1875 fort. If you enjoy the outdoors, you can find apartment rentals in Calgary that are close to popular cities such as Canmore, Red Deer and Banff.
