Calgary is by far the best vacation base for exploring southern Alberta and the Rocky Mountains. It is a pleasant, wealthy city of dazzling skyscrapers and wide boulevards with significant patches of greenbelt running through it, though still retains a small town feel. Calgary boasts many interesting landmarks and museums, plus it makes a great vacation base for hitting Banff, Jasper and their ski resorts by recreational vehicle.
Calgary Tower gives the best perspective of the city, taking in its wide streets, flashy skyscrapers and profusion of greenbelt and snaking Bow River under the guise of the looming Canadian Rockies. Prince's Island Park, not far from Eau Claire market, is nice for picnics and walks.
This rich city also has many excellent museums that cover Calgary's rise to wealth and the natural Alberta history. The Glenbow Museum is huge and especially good, while Telus Spark is one for the kids with its hand-on fun. Also consider visiting Canada Olympic Park-near Calgary West Campground-along with the Fort Calgary Historic Park and the famous Stampede Grounds.
The town is busy but there is some wonderful driving nearby. Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump is a must do an hour or two south, while off to the west along Highway 1 is Banff National Park and the beautifully set town of Banff. Lake Louise is a top ski resort in this area.
Calgary West Campground is the main RV site, located upstream about 15kms from the city centre. It boasts numerous sites and hook-ups and is open year round for RV storage. Extras include a playground, WiFi internet and mini golf. Canada Olympic Park is close by.

Calaway RV Park & Campground is situated about 30kms west of town along the Trans-Canada Highway, the route to Banff. There are dozens of campsites and recreational vehicle sites here and it is especially good for families as there's an amusement park nearby.
They drive on the right in Canada, with lights dipped by day (automatic). While Calgary is less congested than your average US city, it is still fairly large and gets busy at rush hour. Driving distances can be long when traversing the province, while you may need snow chains when taking in Rockies roads in winter.
