Lots of shops and overpriced restaurants and dimly lit pubs. High prices nearly everywhere. Try and get anything you need in Calgary, and bring your own lunch.

There's no shortage of places to eat, shop, etc on this street in Banff. I liked going to get my morning coffee and then walking Banff Avenue early in the day. It's great.

A lovely spot to go for an afternoon stroll. Many choices for eating. Make sure to head up towards Sulphur Mountain to see the river.

While the facade of the buildings is quite attractive, the street is full of souvenir shops and not much more. Didn't enjoy it at all. Quite disappointed.

We always enjoy a walk around Banff avenue. Afternoon tea in Evelyn's is a must, as is a visit to Banff Rocks and Gems.

A walk down Banff avenue and you will enjoy amazing mountain views all around you and awesome shops for everything from souvenirs, ski apparel and rentals, to delicious restaurants! If you have a sweet tooth I suggest trying a Beavertail at Beavertail or go to Cows for an excellent ice cream selection!
