Banff Ave

Banff Ave, Alberta, Canada

Take a walk on the wild side

Any trip to the historic mountain town of Banff must include a leisurely stroll up and down Banff Avenue. Majestic mountains loom at either end of the street, and in between you’ll find restaurants, bars, and shops that sell everything from snowboards and knick-knacks to high-end purses and furs. Whether you’re shopping for a meal, souvenirs, or a new pair of skis, save time to pop into one of the many candy stores to pick up a Bear Claw; the sticky caramel and chocolate goodies are ubiquitous in these parts. Ask a local for their favorite spot, and they'll probably point you toward the Fudgery.
