Banff Ave has something for everyone. There are all types of shops (clothing,chocolate,soaps) and restaurants for even the picky eaters!
It does get very busy so I recommend going early. This will also allow you to find close parking. Parking is paid or free at the Train Station.
Great place to people watch

The avenue was vibrant, but too crowded. We prefer more secluded locations, but our tour guide recommended a restaurant in town. The food was very good, but the post-Covid crowds were massive.

Enjoyed walking the avenue to shop and dine; also a bit of people watching as there are many benches to enjoy.

We did a two week trip around Canada, mainly the Rockies, and this was our favourite town. The shops and eateries are lovely, the town is clean, the views are stunning and the mountain air is fresh! All the shop keepers were very friendly and we really enjoyed wandering around Banff. The bus service was excellent too.

Fun shops, but definitely tourist based. If you want a T-shirt with a slogan or a Banff theme please come here! The Christmas shop is lovely.

Lots of shops are so nice and beautiful. It’s fun to walk around. Lots of tourists are weird and judging though, which really makes the experience bad.

Monod carries excellent brands like Danes of Norway, and and excellent selection of Blundstone shoes from Australia. Two cuts above the rest on quality and service. Abominable Sports was another interesting shop.

We walked the avenue ..browse the different stores but the one I especially enjoyed was the Christmas store , not to miss. The only issue is parking , you have to park on side streets and pay.
