About the location

Are you thinking about escaping to some fresh mountain air and sipping on something delicious from a cozy pub?  This guide is for you!  Follow along as I take you to my favorite places in Banff, Alberta, Canada.

My husband grew up in Calgary (only 1 hour from Banff) so we are able to travel to Banff a few times a year and have really gotten to know the area.  I update this guide often and hope you enjoy the Rockies as much as we do!
