“Walk it off”
Review of Mission District

Mission District
Ranked #83 of 307 things to do in Calgary
Attraction details
Reviewed June 30, 2014

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 the car and take it slowly.

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 and cafes in the city have established themselves along 4th Street in this district.

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 pub is a super-comfy place to have a pint, there are some cute shops, and the overall scale gave us the impression that people who live here play here also. We are looking forward to coming back when the weather is warmer so we can explore a little more.
