Reasons to Love Calgary

I'm just curious to hear why people love living in Calgary. This is not to bad mouth it but rather to learn something about my city that I don't already know.

Mountains -- the best way to spend a weekend, lively or lazy, with or without kids of any size.

Mountains, just to look at. Back when I lived there, I could see them from my front porch and from my office window. (Office wondow overlooked cattle, too, if they escaped from the fields next door.)


Zoo -- we had two kids back then.

Small town rodeos.

I never lived in Calgary, but in Canmore for 10+ years, but Calgary is one of my most favourite cities. What I love most about Calgary is the friendliness of everyone and it's laid back attitude.

Other things to love about Calgary:

Beef (totally agree with BAK)
Bernard Callebaut Chocolates
Rubiyat (awesome store)
Inglewood area
View of the Rockies
Millarville Farmers Market
The Foothills - love the rolling hills

I looooove the Rubiyat! Can't wait to visit on the annual trek home for Christmas.
