Head to the harbor and climb aboard the Tall Ship Glenlee. The Glenlee was built at Port Glasgow in 1896, and she is one of only five Clyde built sailing ships still afloat in the world. Walking around the hun-dred-year-old deck it feels like you are stepping back in time. Relive the danger and adventure of round-ing the Cape Horn in the middle of a full blown gale. Tour the ship and take hold of the giant cherry wood steering wheel or sound the mighty horn. Visitors are encouraged to take a hands on approach, which make the Glenlee a fantastic place for visitors of any age.

Football, also known as soccer, is Europe's unofficial religion and come autumn Hampden Park is filled to overflowing with loyal worshipers. The massive stadium, capable of seating over 50,000, isn’t only used for a match; it is a showcase for some of the world’s most renowned musicians and stars. Paul McCartney put on a brilliant performance in the summer of 2010. If that isn’t enough, you can check out the Sports Museum, a tour of the stadium and you might be aloud to kick a few balls up and down the soccer pitch.

If you enjoy wondering the halls of museums admiring art and history then Glasgow is a treat because a large number of the cities museums are free! There are quite a few to choose from but the most eclectic museum is the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Rooms filled with ancient Egyptian artifacts, fossils, medieval arms and armor, as well as paintings spanning the centuries. One of the most impressive pieces is the Kelvingrove Organ. Not only is it a must see but it is a must hear. Built in 1901 by Lewis and Company, the organ came to its home at the Kelvingrove a year later. It has undergone restoration twice, once because of bomb damage in 1941, but it is still in pristine working condition. At 1 p.m. Monday- Sat-urday, 3:00 and 3:45 p.m. on Sundays, there is a free recital and hearing the music fill the grand hallway is worth timing your visit accordingly.

Time for some fresh air, so why not take a walk around one of Glasgow’s many parks. Queens Park is a gorgeous, 148 acres, Paxton Creation and it boasts a wide range of activities for everyone. Enjoy the fine manicured lawns, nurseries with sub-tropic plants and roses, or a walk along the peaceful paths that are rich with wild life. Queens Park is a perfect place for weary travelers to relax and rejuvenate.

Glasgow is one of the liveliest and most cultured cities in all of Europe. Many consider it to be a center of vitality and style set against the stunning Victorian architecture. Glasgow is home to some of the world’s most famous art collections, some of the best shopping outside of London and the most dynamic night life in all of Scotland. With a lot of everything you are sure to find something to peak you curiosity and quench your need for adventure.
