The best way to explore Calgary is by making use of the city’s well established pathway system which enables locals and visitors alike to move around on foot or by bicycle away from the traffic. There are various parks within the city and the Bow River meanders its way through the downtown area, flanked by footpaths and green areas which make it a welcome escape from the otherwise bustling streets. Alternatively, the Heritage Park Historical Village is located about a twenty minute drive from the downtown area (free parking is available) and is the largest living history museum in Canada. Here you will find a range of attractions and exhibits pertaining to Western Canada’s history between the 1860s and 1950s, using a mix of genuine historic buildings and re-creations alongside antique automobiles and staff outfitted to suit the era.
