What to do in Glasgow

Named the European City of Culture in 1990, Glasgow sits proudly on its traditions, inspiring tourists with historic buildings, modern art galleries, and diverse museums. On the West End near the University of Glasgow, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is filled with 8,000 objects, including Salvador Dali’s famous Christ of Saint John on the Cross , the world’s finest collection of arms and armor, and ancient Egyptian artifacts. Other must-sees include the Gallery of Modern Art, the second most visited contemporary art gallery outside of London; the Glasgow Cathedral, the only medieval cathedral left intact after the Protestant Reformation of 1560; and the interactive Glasgow Science Centre. Make your way around town atop the double-decker, hop on hop off City Sightseeing buses with 24 stops—much more affordable than taxis.

Really fun city, people are very friendly and have an awesome sense of humor and love for life. The Burrell Collection is a cool place to visit, as is the Kelvingrove museum. Head up around Glasgow University for a good selection of bars and restaurants. My favorite is the Ubiquitous Chip!
