Stephen Avenue, located downtown, features some delicious restaurants, bars, and unique shopping experiences for the cowboy/cowgirl in all of us. Even I, hesitantly, admitted to being attracted to at least one pair of cowboy boots with matching hat.
Here are some top sites and restaurants to visit while in the flatlands of Alberta.
-Take in the views from the Calgary Tower fitted with a glass bottom to replicate a Canadian version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
-Stephen Avenue walk, stopping at Divino Wine Bar and the unique shops for a memorable souvenir.
-Eat at Rouge Restaurant, named one of the best restaurants in the world by S. Pellegrino and located at the heritage home of famed Albertan A.E. Cross who was one of the founders of the Calgary Stampede.
-Visit the Calgary Stampede that lasts 10 days during the first two weeks of July. Big names in music and rodeo events prove to be one of Canada's largest and most popular events.
