Calgary

 

The biggest city in the Canadian Prairies, Calgary is an underrated hub for food and entertainment. An explosion of new restaurants and breweries, great festivals and nightlife, and its proximity to the Canadian Rockies and the Badlands make Calgary a not-to-be-missed travel destination. Oh, and did we forget to mention a tiny little thing called the Calgary Stampede? The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth transforms the city into a cowboy's dream every summer, and is worth the trip all its own.
