Making the most out of your Banff vacation rental

It's hard to think of a more dramatic backdrop than the one Banff offers, with the majestic snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains climbing to staggering heights. Located in Banff National Park, the resort town caters to lovers of the great outdoors, as the area is home to ski resorts, lakes, hot springs, and hiking and biking trails. If you prefer life at a slower pace, you could spend your days exploring the charming downtown dotted with chateau-style shops and restaurants. No matter the time of year, Banff's vacation rentals, hotels, and inns are irresistible for vacationing families, solo travellers, groups, and couples.

History

If you're looking to delve into the region's rich history, the Banff Park Museum is the perfect place to start. Housed inside a 1903 cabin, the museum holds the title as Western Canada's oldest natural history museum. The Cave and Basin National Historic Site relays the fascinating tale of an 1883 hot springs discovery, while the nearby Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies examines the rugged mountain range through artwork and historic photographs. The area is also home to the Canadian Ski Museum, which celebrates the sport's heritage and origins, and the Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum, which showcases artifacts relating to the First Nations tribe.

How to get around

Travelling near your Banff vacation rentals

It's easy to get around on foot as Downtown Banff boasts wide sidewalks and a surprisingly flat landscape for a mountain town. Biking is a breeze as well, particularly in a town with scores of bike racks and cycling paths. Public buses offer service throughout Bow Valley, connecting Banff to neighbouring communities. Taxi service is also available in town, and some hotels provide free shuttle service to nearby ski resorts. You'll need a car to fully explore Banff National Park or, if you prefer to leave the driving to someone else, you could reserve a spot on a hop-on, hop-off shuttle bus.

Food & drink

Beer, bison, and boar – dining adventures in Banff

If you've been itching to sample Canadian Rocky Mountain Cuisine, you're in just the right place. The region emphasizes locally sourced foods, so menus typically feature dishes highlighting such fare as rainbow trout, mushrooms, and fiddlehead greens. For heartier eating, make your way to one of Banff's numerous Western Canadian-style saloons and steakhouses, where you can chow down on such unique offerings as bison, elk, and wild boar. Barbecued beef – braised and grilled in onions and peppers – is also an Alberta specialty. You can end your culinary tour with a cold ale in one of the region's various craft breweries.
