Eric and I toured the west of Canada in august/september of 2001. Our trip started in Calgary.

We spent only a day and a half in Calgary, and we were a little dazed from jet-lag. However, my impression was that it's a friendly, appealing city.

The view from the Calgary Tower is impressive, definitely worth it. Another good option is the Glenbow museum. It's beautiful, with lots of interesting items from Samurai helmets to Ivory Coast statues. There's not too much on "history of Canada" stuff, though; if that's what you're interested in (as a non-Canadian tourist, perhaps) I suggest the museum in Victoria, on Vancouver Island.
