I’m moving to Calgary in second week of May. I’ll be driving from Toronto to Calgary (any advice or suggestion in this regard also will be highly appreciated).
My main concern is after I get there. Since I don’t know anyone in Calgary, I’m thinking of staying in a B&B or a motel for the first week or so while I’m looking for an apartment. I would like to live in safe and nice neighborhood and the amount of the rent is not much an issue. Since I drive, I don’t need to be VERY close to downtown or transit system but close enough that if I decide not to take the car, I wouldn’t be in trouble.
I got a little bit familiar with the quadrants and some neighborhoods from what’s posted on this website and my own researches but still not sure where I should start. So, my questions are:
1. Which part of the city (of course in SW, NW) I should look for a B&B to be close to library, shopping, …or if you know of some, please let me know?
2. Which neighborhoods, I should look for an apartment to rent with the same criteria as above?
