Giddy up for Canada's fun-loving wild west: Calgary! True grit takes centre stage at a rowdy, annual rodeo, earning the city its raucous nickname of Cowtown. When it's not horsing around with cowboys and cowgirls, it's serving up craft beers and original cuisine, stellar shopping and a surprising arts scene. Oh, and did we mention it's near one of Canada's best national parks?Yee-haw!
