We had limited time in Calgary and had not had the time to see the city. We took some time and saw it all from the Calgary Tower. The city is a beautiful place and the lights at night were incredible!

Though not nearly as tall as modern structures, the Calgary Tower makes up for it with a top notch restaurant.
