A beautiful place to start a visit in downtown Calgary.
Besides it is a old place, it is renovated and offers a beautiful city view.
One part has a glass floor where you could walk in and see the ground and how hight you are.
If you are visiting Calgary like i was, then this is a must. i visited at night and the view is spectacular, If you are bit scared of heights, then this will be fun and push your comfort levels a bit. i only went for...More
We were staying at the hotel across the street from the tower and decided we would take a trip to the top for something to do during the day. It was a very cold(-17) crisp day and the view was stunning! There are no windows...More

About 30 minutes by car. The Tower is in the middle of downtown Calgary; while the airport is in the far northeast quadrant of the city.

Good day. You seem to be packing an incredible amount of driving into a very short time frame. I will address question #1, as that's what I'm most familiar with: You would need to set aside five hours (at least) to drive from Calgary to Jasper, and another five hours to drive back. For comparison, it would be like driving from Miami to Atlanta and back for a day trip (I'm guessing you're from Florida so I'm trying to use a local example), except that it's mountain driving so you'll be...More

Your plans might be a bit too ambitious for 2 days. You might be able to fit it all in, but you might not. I'd prioritize your list and plan to go to your "must see" places first and then see how you are doing time wise for the lower priority places. I would recommend spending some time in the Kensington area and the Beltline instead of Downtown and the Beltline. With your 2 day timeline you could also do your retail therapy at The Core mall downtown if it is closer to your hotel and other...More
