“A Pretty Town With Atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Although it is the highest town in Canada with an elevation of 1.383 metres it certainly doesn't feel like it as it nestles below the towering Rundle Mountain.
Banff is a town worth exploring. Walking through its main streets named after local animals such as Lynx, Muskrat, Marten, Beaver, Bear, Caribou & Grizzly I came across some quaint buildings like the Banff Trading Post, homes, an even quainter Restaurant Name "Melissa's Missteak". Everywhere were the spring flower boxes. There are oodles of places to eat for every price range.

“Lovely”

We spent and afternoon in Banff and enjoyed the beautiful back drop of the Rocky Mountains. There is all kinds of shopping to be had and restaurants and watering holes for everyone to enjoy.

“A little Gem in the moutains!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

The Banff Centre can be easy to overlook, but it hosts an array of concerts, dance, theater productions, and films. The venue for live music is nicely set up, good space and intimate. The area for the films is also great - they host the Banff Film Festival which is fantastic. If you get a chance to watch one of the outdoor films this is also a fab experience in the amphitheater!
