Not only do we have an international airport, we are only hours away from the U.S. border, lakes, ski resorts and natural reserve areas including Banff National Park, one of the worlds most beautiful natural areas there is.
If you live in Calgary, chances are you have traveled westward on the Trans Canada Highway to the foothills and Rocky Mountains for one reason or another.
If this is true, then you know that Canmore is the first town you will come across in about 50 minutes. Driving another 15 minutes past Canmore takes you to Banff, another popular travel destination within an hour’s reach from Calgary’s city limits.
Banff and Canmore are both great places for romanticists, tourists, and recreationalists alike, with a wide variety of activities and events for all.
Living in Calgary I have had the opportunity to take advantage of what Banff and Canmore have to offer.
