Review of Banff Avenue

Banff Avenue
Ranked #15 of 91 things to do in Banff
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

During the winter (which this year has lasted into April so far) this is a fabulous street to walk down. The view of Cascade Mountain is classic. In the height of summer it is more like a rugby scrum and not recommended.

I checked out Banff Avenue during my trip to Canada, and it was wonderful! Really quaint, fresh air, and lots of things to do!

There are lots of shops and some restaurants. You can buy souvenirs or winter clothing or sports gear there.

Everything you need in Banff is on this street or right off this street. Reminds me of every skiing town I used to visit growing up. Lots to do and see. Good nightlife after hours.

We liked walking down the street. Great atmosphere and mountain views. Most of the souvenir shops offer similar things, so you might not need to see them all, but it was fun to try! There are a few “fancy” stores selling high-end clothing and gifts. Lots of places to eat. Good selection.
