“Great vibe!”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Beautiful street to wander down during the evening. There are so many cafes & shops, it'd take you months to visit them all! Definitely put this on your list to visit for a meal or just to enjoy the atmosphere!

“Alive with Summer Adventure”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I love the ebb and flow of People during the Summer. The entertainment, food kiosks and the unique shopping. You get to rub elbows with some talented musicians, tourists, business professionals and street people.

“Love!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

It is a nice street. Pedestrian everyday from 6AM to 6PM. Lots of restaurants, lots of people during lunch time. If you want a nice restaurant, arrive around 11:45 during lunch, or you wont get a place.
The walk is just really nice. I bring everyone visiting Calgary there.

“There is so much interesting stuff going on here throughout the summer!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

The giant TV for watching the Olympic games this summer was excellent! And I have seen lots of excellent musical groups performing (for free, or donate if you'd like to) along the Avenue during the day: Classical music ensembles, rock bands, folk musicians, Latin groups, buskers with guitars and saxophones - and that was just this week! Also lots of food kiosks and restaurants. After 5:00 or so it empties out quite a bit, giving way to restaurant and nightclub traffic.
