Fodor's Expert Review Calgary Tower

Calgary Observatory/Planetarium

The views from this 626-foot (191-meter), scepter-shaped edifice take in the city's layout, the surrounding plains, and the face of the Rockies rising 80 km (50 mi) to the west. A "torch" that crowns the tower is lighted for special events and occasions. The tower top also holds the revolving Panorama Room restaurant, which serves all three meals; Tops Grill; and a gift shop.
