Any one who is close to banff should go have a visit. The city is beautiful and offers a lot of natural beauty like the bow river. If you go there during the summer, kayaking on it is a must.

Very scenic waterfall near the Banff Springs Fairmont hotel. Photo ops galore with river and mountains. Nice walk from town on local trail system.

I really enjoy the views along the river. Best time to visit is in the fall. Try a trail or two for full effect.

I love the trails along the Bow in any season of the year. I especially like the downtown area, over to East Village then past Fort Calgary and into Inglewood for a coffee, munchies or a brew at the Oil Can and some great music. An after noon of being outside, window shopping and food right in your downtown Core area.
