"Trendy Spot to Shop" 17th Ave SW Tip by Seradoms

17th Ave SW, Calgary: 2 reviews and 1 photos

This has been nicknamed "The Red Mile" from the Calgary Flames' NHL playoff series - google it to see the very cool pictures! However, year-round this is a trendy spot to shop and eat some lunch or go out for a coffee meet with friends. The avenue is alive at all hours of the day, espically on fridays and saturdays when the pubs and clubs are open late. You can shop for everyting from second-hand vintage (at stores like 'Divine Decadence'), to Hip-Hop gear, or stain-glass lamps (check out 'Rubiyat').

What to buy: A must buy on 17th Ave is an icecream cone from Phil's IceCream - a locally owned and operated shop that has been hailed for "the best icecream in the west"! They have everything from the extremely rare: Wasabi & Lychee Icecream (!!) to classic French Vanilla.
