Living in Calgary
Calgary is the business capital of the province of Alberta. And Albert, in turn, is the energy capital of Canada, because oil and gas are extracted here. The city is located strategically: Rocky Mountains protect it safely from Pacific harbor weather surprises in the west; boundless prairies, lying to the east, provide the province with abundant sustenance; Trans Canada Highway connects Calgary with economically important regions of the country, and the proximity to the border with the southern neighbor makes the city an ideal transportation hub and a center of business activity.
As a result, the entire downtown is built up with skyscrapers of oil giants: Shell, Suncor, Nexen, Chevron and others. And there is nothing wrong with that, because petrodollars, in fact, provide economic welfare of the city. It is noteworthy that the center of the city, so vibrant in the daytime, literally dyes out with the end of the working day. Calgary is a quite city, a perfect place for families with children.
