Things to Do & See

Jump to last reply

Hi,
Hubbie and I thinking of doing a trip to Calgary, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper Park..
Aside from hiking, can you tell me briefly what there is to do and in each town,so I can try and plan my nights accordingly.
Which is a better base, Lake Louise or Banff? Thanks so much

    H-m-m, Donna, you might not be getting so much response as your headline doesn't really ask about a particular city/destination.

    Also, you are "tagged" with NWT, but your questions are all about Alberta.

    I am not an expert on these areas and maybe by re-posting you will attract some who are, but I will give it a shot.

    First, Calgary is a BIG city with galleries, museums, markets, malls, parks and restaurants galore. There are all kinds of things to do including concerts, cowboy poetry theatre, line-dancing and karaoke! What did you have in mind? Maybe a guide book from your local library will be able to help you narrow down the choices?

    Banff is a charming, small town that has been overtaken by tourism but still retains some of the old feel. Apart from hiking and the natural aspect which is breathtaking, Banff has a lot of concerts and bars and seasonal entertainment. It also has a spectacular hotel, the Banff Springs Fairmont and if you can afford it, it is the best place to stay with lots of entertainment options onsite.

    I don't know Lake Louise well at all - only ever stayed there once, so I will let others comment on that end of things.

    Hope this helps!
