The Mission District is one of Calgary's most desirable locales, bordered by the winding Elbow River to the south and east, and by 4th Street and 17th Avenue to the north and west. The tree lined 4th Street promenade is populated by some of Calgary's best known restaurants, including Wurst, La Boulangerie, Vin Room, Anejo, Mercato, Earls, Bistro 2210 and Rajdoot. Every amenity is within walking distance from your home in Roxboro House, including a tailor and dry cleaning, groceries, video store, gift shops, banking  and Starbucks. The #3 express bus stop is right outside your door for a quick 5 minute ride to the downtown core, but why take the bus when it takes only 20 minutes to walk to Banker's Hall? For your weekend stroll you are steps away from the Elbow River and access to the Calgary pathway system, that leads to both the Bow River pathway and west through Stanley Park right up to the Glenmore Reservoir. The massive Talisman Centre recreation complex is a ten minute walk where you'll find an aquatic centre, indoor track, exercise classes and weight room facilities. At the end of May you'll have a front row seat for the Tulip Festival, one of Calgary's largest community fairs. This location is truly remarkable and provides every convenience you can imagine during your stay.
