Great way to view the city

We wished we had had lunch at the restaurant at the top since it rotates 360* in one hour. Great way to see this beautiful city

I went with friends to the Calgary Tower on a beautifully clear day. We had lunch in the restaurant. The food was reasonably priced and delicious and the restaurant took one hour to revolve completely. The views of the city were great. If you struggle with motion sickness, don't sit near the windows, because the movement is very obvious and... More

Visiting the Calgary Tower was a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon and thankfully is was a clear day with unlimited views of the city all the way to the Rockies. Although somewhat dwarfed by the recent additions to the Calgary skyline such as the much taller Encana building, this is still an excellent attraction. The tower features a... More

One of my favorite attractions in the city, the Calgary Tower is a super thing to do on a clear, sunny day, or even at night! The Tower provides a 360° view of the city with a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains in the distance. Just watch out for that first step onto the glass floor... it's a doozy!... More
