The Calgary Tower is an important destination in Calgary to see the lay of the land, check out the nearby mountains and the river meandering through this vibrant city. The glass platform for looking down the however-many stories to the ground is scary but worth checking out. Dinner in the revolving restaurant is the ideal way to enjoy the scenery,... More

It was an amazing experience to learn that it took 15 months to construct the tower and that it moves when it's windy and at the same time safe for people because the foundation is very deep into the ground, it took a month for the worker to fill the foundation with concrete. A lot of other things to learn,... More

Took the kids to check out the Tower, and they both enjoyed the glass floor. We managed to take some great photos! The kids enjoyed the Observation deck very much. The city skyline is beautiful in the evening! There are coupons in the yearly Entertainment Books for Buy 1, Get 1 and they are worth it to use! My kids... More

Calgary Tower is like most any other tower of its kind....it provides great views of the city, and on clear days you can see the mountains easily. The restaurant spins around slowly so that while you sit, you can have a city wide view all around. It's worth going to at least once.

I'd lived in Calgary 10 years before going to the Tower. I highly recommend everyone go at least once. The tower has a 360 view of Calgary while the room itself slowly rotates. There is a glass floor you can stand on which lets you see down to 9th avenue. You could easily spend close to an hour just looking... More

A good place to go and have a great view of the city. The audio guide gives a good idea of the curiosities about the city.

Great views on a clear day. Is better value if restaurant booked ahead as the price of admission can be included with the purchase of a meal in the restaurant. Note, this has to be booked ahead.
