At meal time, we eat at our favorite restaurants in the park.
After meals, we walk around the Banff townsite, and stop in unique art galleries and jewelry stores, which are packed with local artist’s special works.

Most of the time we hike up and take the gondola down.
Every once in a while, we escaped from home at weekends or holidays to spend one or two nights in our favorite luxury Banff hotels / lodges and soak in the Upper Hot Springs.
We were so in love with this place. We had our wedding here. If you are planning a wedding or honeymoon, HERE is the great place to be.
