Royal Honeymoon Tour: Calgary

  |  By Nicole Keen

Nestled between the Prairies and the Rocky Mountains, Calgary is a thriving metropolis surrounded by beautiful natural scenery. The city is a wonderful place to visit at any time of year, but it is especially vibrant during the Calgary Stampede in July. William and Catherine will be in town to experience this very special event, otherwise known as "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth." When they're not sitting front row at the rodeo, the Royal Couple can also enjoy a stroll along the Stephen Avenue Walk, a pedestrian-only area known for its historic sandstone buildings, or take a trip to the top of the Calgary Tower, which boasts a revolving restaurant with breathtaking views of the Rockies.

WHERE TO STAY: Planning a honeymoon trip to Calgary? You'll definitely receive the royal treatment at Hôtel Le Germain, a luxury boutique hotel located in the downtown core. During your stay, you can be whisked around town by an Audi chauffeur service. Or if you're craving a night closer to home, book a romantic dinner at in-house restaurant CHARCUT Roast House, where urban rustic cuisine is whipped up from local ingredients.
