Scotland's largest city has long been trying to shake off its gritty reputation as nothing more than a densely populated industrial centre, and it seems like all that effort has paid off. From an incredibly diverse range of musical performances, theatre and cultural events, sports competitions, and a nightlife scene that continually astounds and amazes unsuspecting visitors with its energy and variety, vacations in Glasgow have a great deal to offer those who choose to visit. Give yourself a little while to get used to the unusual dialect and special slang used by Glaswegians, and you will soon be enjoying the accent rather than being bewildered by it.
Experience the new face of Glasgow as you walk along the River Clyde or delve into its past with visits to the colossal Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the magnificent Glasgow Cathedral. If being a slave to the guidebook just isn't your cup of tea, stock up on energy with a deep-fried Mars bar sugar rush and hit the streets of Glasgow to explore on your own. As you bargain for discounts in Barras Market, take a whisky-tasting tour of the Glengoyne Distillery, gaze up at the soaring spires of the City Chambers, and stroll through the People's Palace and Winter Gardens, it won't be long before you agree with the locals about Glasgow being the best city in all of Scotland.
