Shopping Banff Avenue
It’s hard to put a finger on precisely what gives Banff Avenue its charm. It could be the majestic bookends of Cascade Mountain and the Bow River or the shared connection of residents and visitors who come here to find all they need for days spent in the mountains.
The offerings of the shops that line Banff Avenue range from the gear you may need for tomorrow’s hike to gifts that symbolize the spirit of the Rockies. Stroll in and out of open doorways and gather a collection of keepsakes representing what the mountains mean to you.
