Calgary exists as:
1. A massive economic engine fueled by oil
2. A base for people who are venturing off to the mountains.

If you want to experience an interesting city, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Calgary is basically a large suburb with a small core area dominated by a sterilized central business district.over 6 years ago
