Walkable from downtown, this is one of Calgary's desirable neighbourhoods. If you're lucky enough to live there, you'll know why. But like most of us, we just visit as we can. The Elbow River borders the Mission / Cliff Bungalow on the north and east,...More

Recently moved here -- but have been coming down almost weekly for the past couple of years. This neighbourhood has everything you could want. You can walk to restaurants, parks, running paths, shopping, health care, theatre, movies, etc. Wonderful location by the Elbow!

It's nice to stroll along the streets of the Mission District in Calgary. The houses are cute and well kept, like going back in time. There are restaurants and coffee shops in the area to sit back and enjoy some relaxation and good food. It's...More

The mission district is rich in history, and has a lot of character. There are lots of good restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance, and the area is within a short stroll of the Stampede grounds and the Saddledome, as well as the more...More

The Mission is like being transported to a funky, cool little place ... Walk the streets, stop for a coffee, croissant, walk more, peruse the shops - try on some clothes ... Stop later for a glass of wine and lunch or an early dinner...More

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...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.
