Getting Around
There is a local bus service named Roam which connects to most of the popular tourist attractions.  This is Canada’s first all-hybrid bio-diesel/electric bus fleet so it is friendly to the environment and can accommodate strollers, skis and snowboards.  Banff town is fairly small and just about anywhere is within walking distance.  Taxi cabs are also available in the town.  Biking is popular there and bikes can be hired.  For a fun way to tour the town of Banff, carriage rides can be taken and can be arranged at the Trail Rider store.

Outdoor Pursuits
As Banff is one of Canada's most popular tourist hotspots due to its mountains and hot springs, it is a perfect destination for lovers of outdoor sports and has many hiking, biking and skiing areas within the region.  There are 3 ski resorts located locally to Banff and the Banff Gondola up to Sulphur Mountain is an amazing trip.  Lake Minnewanka is very popular and mountain biking, hiking and fishing are all activities there.  Also, you can take a lake cruise or rent a motor boat. 

For golf enthusiasts try the Banff Springs Golf Course, although the spectacular mountainous views can be very distracting.  For rainy days, the Cave and Basin National Historic Site tells the story of the National Park’s creation.  If relaxation is what you are looking for, Banff offers this in a choice of hot springs and spas.  At Banff Upper Hot Springs you can soak in hot, 100% natural spring water, whilst checking out the breath-taking mountain views.

Eating and Drinking
From the Balkan Restaurant with a Greek Menu, to the Keg Steakhouse and Lounge for great steaks, every taste is catered for.  There are many places in which to have a drink après-ski or just for relaxation and most pubs have live music.  Try Elk and Oarsman, a traditional Canadian style pub or if you still have energy to burn, dance the night away at Dancing Sasquatch Nightclub.

Places to Stay
From cabins and camping grounds to hotels and Canadian lodges, there is plenty of choice there, although due to Banff being an extremely popular area, it is advisable to book well in advance.
