With all its grandeur, Calgary is a perfect place to attend a TapRooT® Course. This vibrant city offers the best of all worlds. While it is a cosmopolitan city of more than 1 million people, the beautiful landscapes, exciting adventures, and pristine wilderness are something to behold. Here are some attractions and destination to enjoy while you’re in Calgary:

The Calgary Tower

The Calgary Tower opened in June of 1968. Since then, the Tower has become the city’s most famous and identifiable landmark. The Calgary Tower offers the best view in Calgary and is a must-see.

And be sure to check out the glass floor experience! Imagine standing 525 feet above the ground in the heart of Calgary and being able to look straight down and directly out in front of you into the heart of the city. The glass floor is 36 feet long and more than four feet wide and, with only a glass wall in front, you will be treated to the unusual experience of literally being suspended in mid-air. It’s truly awe-inspiring and something you’ll never forget.

Calgary’s Breweries

Calgary has some of the most modern craft-brewing facilities in the world. Premium, batch-brewed ales, on-site production of craft beers, seasonal beers and more will tantalize your taste buds. Enjoy brewery tasting tours and then sit down to fine continental cuisine.
