While the pandemic had plenty of downsides, it really did help locals rediscover the local treasures in the area. The real estate market in Canmore continues to boom as locals that used to think of it as a weekend playground now seek to make Canmore home. It’s no wonder why when you see the many perks of the area. Let’s take a closer look.

Roam Transit

Roam is a comfortable, affordable transit service that takes you to all the local attractions. In the summer traffic is heavy and parking is scarce. Thanks to Roam, you can get to places like Sulphur Mountain, Cave & Basin, Lake Minnewanka and downtown Canmore without ever needing a car. Many use Roam to get to work too, so they can fully enjoy the car-free lifestyle.

Legacy Trail

Running between Canmore and Banff, Legacy Trail is a dream for those that like to bike/ebike or hike. During the summer the trail is closed to traffic to make it safe for the many bike riders that want to enjoy the trail and its beautiful views. No bike? No problem! There are plenty of places to rent one for the day.


Much is made of Europe’s walkable cities but there is no need to become an expat when Canmore’s walkability score is among the highest in Alberta. With paths maintained year round, residents and tourists easily stroll to attractions, dinning, trails, entertainment and shopping.

Elevation Place

The all-in-one place for family fun, Elevation Place has a pool, waterslide, climbing wall, fitness centre and group workout classes. Memberships range from drop-in to part-time to full-time. No matter how you enjoy Canmore (resident, summer only, weekend visit) there is an Elevation Place membership that works with your schedule. It’s the perfect place for parents to enjoy with their children, or to work out while their kids are in the Child Minding centre. In addition to fitness, families can also enjoy the library and art studio.

Farmers Markets

For more than 20 years, Canmore Mountain Market has been delighting guests with one of the best Farmers Markets in the area. In addition to fresh vegetables and fruit, enjoy the many works from local artist and entrepreneurs. Follow Canmore Mountain Market on Facebook to learn more about operating times, vendors and special announcements.
