When to Visit Calgary, Alberta

If you think of Calgary as a cold-weather destination, you're at least half right. This city truly shines in the winter, but it's also a popular summertime destination. In the summer, you can expect highs in the low 70s, which makes for the perfect weather for hiking, fishing, and picnicking. When winter rolls around, you can expect lows in the single digits and around 10 feet of snow throughout the season, which makes for perfect snow sports weather.

Spring and fall tend to be less popular times to visit Calgary, but they're just as beautiful. Spring brings highs in the upper 50s, while fall tends to bring highs in the 40s. You'll want to be prepared for at least a few snowflakes during these shoulder seasons, too.

Want to keep an eye on your trip costs when visiting Calgary? Keep in mind that summer tends to be the most expensive time to visit the city, but that doesn't mean your summertime trip has to break the bank. Plan in advance, and you're likely to find great deals on hotels in Calgary.

The City of True Canadian Spirit

Calgary is a beautiful city in the province of Alberta, Canada. The name of the city is said to come from the Isle of Mull, Scotland. Scientists even say that the island itself was called after the mix of two words kald and gart, similar to Old Norse words meaning cold and garden. Other scientists think that Calgary could have been named after Gaelic words meaning something like 'bay farm or 'clear running water. Nonetheless, despite the scientific discussions, none of the tourists that have visited Calgary are arguing about the beauty of this city. Perhaps that is why in 1988 Calgary even hosted the Olympic Winter Games. So if you want to spend a lovely holiday in Canadian scenery, you should definitely go to Calgary.
