This is the Main Street in Banff. You will fall in love right away with Banff Avenue. There are many shops, restaurants and art galleries. If you are stopping in at every little shop, your day will go by quickly.
Not many shops are open before 9:00 am, but local coffee shops are open for early risers and you can watch how Banff starts a day. Late afternoon is when this street gets busy and around lunch time it is quieter and you can take your time strolling up and down each unique side.
