I'm mom traveling with 2 children 10 & 12 and hope to be in Jasper the 3rd week in June. We'll be coming up from Seattle. We will go to Jasper from Vancouver (as well as returning to same) by VIA rail.
Due to the VIA rail schedule, we have a choice of either staying 3 nights or 5 nights in Jasper. Which would be better? Will 5 nights/days seem too long in that one area?
Since we won't have a car, I might guess we'd have to rent a car for some of the sights and activities. But I'm hoping that if we stay at a home stay type accommodation in town, we'd be able to get to some things without a car?
