Stephen Avenue Walk, Calgary

4.0
#1 of 27 in Shopping in Calgary
Take a trip downtown to the city’s historic pedestrian mall, Stephen Avenue Walk, and treat yourself to boutique shopping amid an eclectic mix of retailers. Registered historic sandstone buildings form of the avenue’s distinct backdrop, so be sure to admire the period architecture that surrounds you. As you make your way through many tempting restaurants, bars, and shops, you will find it hard to miss the Galleria Trees--iconic metal sculptures installed in 2000 to help reduce strong wind gusts in the mall. These sculptures also provide seasonal lighting and from their installed sound system, you will often hear local artists’ music playing through the airwaves.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
