NileGuide Expert Says:
Banff is a fun get-away from Calgary, and I get out there at least three or four times per year. The calamari at the SaltLik is a personal favorite. The Rimrock has one of Alberta's finest restaurants. And, the Banff Springs is world-famous for good reason.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Banff on a long-weekend is absolutely chaotic. There's been times where it's hard to even walk down the street because it's so crowded. If you can get away on a workday, it's a much more enjoyable experience.
