With the plethora of nearby ski-resorts, Calgary is the perfect place to pick up winter sportswear and equipment. You’ll also find plenty of stores stocking traditional cowboy gear including, boots, saddles, lassos and Stetsons.
Calgary's village in the city, the Kensington district, has over 140 excellent shops and restaurants. Prince's Island Park is great for fresh foods and one-of-a-kind specialty shops, kiosks and restaurants. One of the most fun places to get into the swing of the cowboy feel of Calgary is in Stephen Avenue Walk. Make sure to get yourself a pair of well crafted cowboy boots, with a hat to match, and enjoy shopping in "cowboy chic" Some other great items to look out for are ceramics, sculptures and paintings.
