Always I get great information from this web site as everyone is kind enough to share his/her experience and/or tips. I have found some kind souls who often give extensive and very helpful info. That's how I got some motivation to ask some assistance for my trip.
Okay to the main topic :)
I'm flying to Seattle on the June 6th from the east coast (NC) and plan to spend about 10 days (leaving Seattle on the 16th) with my family (with 2 low-teenagers). My main focus would be Banff area. However since it's first trip to Seattle, Vancouver area I'd like to spend 2-3 days there as well.
I plan to drive on the 7th and stop in between (purshaded not to drive all the way to Banff in one day by reading some posts here). Where would you recommend to stay overnight?
We've got about 5 days in Banff and vicinity. Other than Banff, Lake Louise, Icefields Parkway, Jasper, would you recommend any place else that we shouldn't miss? My kids will love Glaciers and we like to enjoy the great nature.
As you can see I didn't have much chance to plan it in detail. I'm just thankful that I can have some quality time with my family. Thus, any comment/suggestion/recommendation would be welcome.
I have no idea where to go after leaving banff area at this point. Probably somewhere in between Banff and Vancouver and some place in BC (perhaps west coast) would be good candidates ... (also I'll post some message to other Forums).
Oh by the way I booked the Douglas Fir resort after reading some posts here.
Thanks in advance!
