Alongside Glasgow's historical
architecture is the Clyde Arc, also known
as the Squinty Bridge, one of the most
recognizable fixtures in the city.

WHAT TO DO

Local Perspective: Glasgow

"y

ou almost feel like you're going back
in time when you're in Glasgow," says
city resident Kerry K. No wonder:
Considered the seat of the Scottish
Enlightenment, Glasgow's streets are filled
with splendid Victorian architecture, markers
of the Glaswegian tradition of trade, and
remarkable music.
"Every city has music, but not like Glasgow.
There's this immense pride in Celtic music-the
Celtic Connections music festival happens
in late January every year, and that's a huge
draw," Kerry says. Come summer, give
yourself a day of music by spending time
in beautiful Kelvingrove Park, which abuts a
popular museum whose main attraction is an
enormous concert pipe organ. Then head to
the park's amphitheater for an outdoor show.
Chances are, though, that you won't have to
go far to find musical or other artistic delights.
"The city center pretty much has musicians
at every corner, and just art in general," Kerry
says. "Glasgow's history means that it has
some really amazing architecture, so even if

you don't know where you're going, you're
going to be seeing something striking."
That goes for the people, too: "Going out
here is different than in other cities, where
you usually have young people hanging out
just with young people, or people who sort of
dress a certain way all hanging out together.
It's not as segregated here by age or general
style. That makes it a really interesting city to
people-watch. Walk down Buchanan Street
and you'll get a taste of how surprisingly
diverse it is, and how friendly," she adds.
As for the food, Kerry recommends
lunching at Chaakoo, an Indian restaurant
with tapas-style small plates located right off
Buchanan Street. It's not as surprising as it
sounds, as Glasgow has a sizable Indian and
Pakistani population. But if traditional Scottish
is more your style, Kerry suggests Two Fat
Ladies to get your fill of salmon, haggis and
plaid furnishings. For a spin on the national
cuisine, try Ubiquitous Chip for steak. "It's
Scotland, right? So you know you're going
to have great steak."
