If one is on a day trip or two in Calgary, Mission District might easily be missed. There is nothing spectacular or eye-catching for a first-timer. Ten blocks or so, between 17 Avenue SW and Elbow River, the district was originally established by French Canadian settlers, in early 1900's. One of the best quarters of town with lush greenery and... More

Mission district is quite eclectic with unique shops and restaurants in the area, and old houses and new redevelopment popping up everywhere. It's a great place to eat and shop, and then walk south towards the Elbow River for a stroll.

Fun district to toddle around in and poke in shops, grab a coffee or a bite to eat. I usually drop my car off at 4&20 to have it washed and then go for a pleasant wander.

This is one of the truly walk-friendly retail sections in Calgary. While driving through it can be frustrating that means it's built for what it's built for. This is a MUST stop for weekend evening activities, restaurants, sports bars, lounges, shopping, along with a number of Mom n Pop stores that add lots of flare. Do yourself a favor, park... More

A nice place to browse and shop at the many local small businesses. Many excellent and diverse restaurants in the area. The area is open for business and very vibrant following our June 2013 floods. Mission and Calgary is very resilient and we thank all the volunteers, organizations and others who helped out!

Mission is a nice neighborhood in the city, with older character homes, modern condos, inviting restaurants and funky shops. We like to walk in this area on the weekend...and we hope it rebuilds and recovers after the great flood of 2013

Mission has become an area of the city to sit on the patio and enjoy the vibe of an upscale part of town that is vibrant day and night. It is close to downtown but still maintains the feel of a unique neighborhood with many bright victorian homes and a generous quantity of big trees. Some of the finest restaurants... More

In our recent trip to familiarize ourselves with Calgary, our favourite area was Mission. Lower key than 17th Ave, a bit shinier than Kensington, we decidedly spent more time here than any other place we discovered. I'm sure we missed some Calgary sweet spots, but what we liked about this area was the mix of residential, shops and restaurants. Joyce... More

Mission is a picturesque area for walking by the river and through Lindsay Park, and has many century-old houses, lots of shops and a great choice of restaurants. Trendy, hipster, cool area.
