From its roots as a coal-mining town, Canmore has grown into a mountain destination of international acclaim, with untold opportunities for outdoor adventure and an infectious, never-ending energy.
Nestled amid the Canadian Rocky Mountains at the gates to Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one hour from Calgary and its International Airport, Canmore has become the hip place where cyclists and tourists, musicians and mountain climbers, foodies and faddies mix comfortably on the patios of gourmet cafés, contributing to the cool and casual spirit that’s a defining hallmark of the town.
Downtown Canmore has evolved naturally over the town’s history, and vestiges of its past are artfully woven together with touches of modern sophistication. Stores resembling settlers’ cabins, the original hotel, affectionately called “The HO”, an array of clothing and décor boutiques, yoga studios, youthful cafés and stylish gourmet restaurants all seem right at home together.
At the heart of Canmore’s downtown, Spring Creek embraces and exudes Canmore’s unique personality – eclectic, energetic, engaging…and never quite what you expect. And everyone’s invited to join in.
