Is it a great city to go out of your way to visit? No. Maybe during the Stampede, but even then I think the Stampede is overrated.
Sure its sprawling and there are plenty of cookie cutter neighborhoods, but the core has some liveliness in Kensington and 17th Ave. Sure it's not like Kits and the Drive, but it still gives some colour.
I was one of the biggest Calgary pessimists before moving here, but I've been quite impressed. Once you get over the fact that it's not as charming as Vancouver, it's a great place to live.
Calgary has literally priced people out of the market. Calgary is not affordable. Winnipeg isn't even affordable anymore for single people.
