Which would you Choose? I’m sure Costa Rica’s amazing. I know…
Vacation in Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta Canada
Many vacationers actually struggle to choose between a warm tropical vacation or a trip to a ski resort near a mountain town. And then there’s the summer vs winter conundrum.
This post might sway you to choose a place that’s more vertical in nature offering more of the sights and adventurous experiences that make you feel alive. If you’re feeling bored with the usual Florida/Mexico/Caribbean or Costa Rica vacation, perhaps a vacation in the Canadian Rockies might give you a lift.
This winter and beyond into 2017, millions of people will visit the Canadian Rockies with Banff National Park as their destination. American travelers will love the extra boost the US Canada currency exchange gives them in 2017. That’s a 30 cents on the dollar bonus!
But what will you find when you visit Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise in Alberta Canada? You’ll find one of the most completely satisfying vacations possible.
And if wedding bells are in your future, this Canadian paradise will get you started on a delightful note. And shouldn’t you get your marriage launched the very best way?

Chateau Lake Louise – An Absolute Must See
The pleasing architecture and stunning views offered at the Chateau Lake Louise make it a prefered destination for world travelers. High altitude, clean air, beautiful colors, fantastic walking trails, leave an indelible impression on all visitors. Canoeing, eating drinking, and listening to Swiss Alp Horns is part of a typical day at Lake Louise. If you’re lucky you might might a Canadian deer or a hoary Marmot.
The alpine trails leading to the tea houses are a spectacular adventure. Believe me, if you’re a hiker, you won’t want to leave. Bring your camera, your friends, a lunch, and shoot all the selfies you can! It’s expected here.

Banff Springs Hotel – Canada’s National Treasure
Want to experience the Rockies and Banff like a celebrity or royalty? You can do that and you’ll likely see celebrities here from around the world. This old castle looks like it’s shipped in from Europe. It’s splendid interior and exterior architecture is a marvel you’ll be checking out. It’s been beautifully refurbished to include a magnificent spa. You can walk, ride your mountain bike, or go golfing or river rafting. This is where Marilyn Monroe stayed when doing the film A River Runs Through it.
It’s a nice walk to the town of Banff but don’t get too close to the Elk walking about freely. Elk are huge animals and the rocky mountain sheep are large too.
Is Moraine Lake The Most Beautiful Lake in the World?
Take a hike around Moraine Lake which is near Lake Louise. Spectacular.
