Banff's Bow River

Banff, AB T1L 1J4, Canada
15 Kudos
You can't visit Banff, AB without falling in love with the Bow River, which runs right through the heart of town. We spent every morning walking along it with a cup of coffee and ended up on a bench a couple of days after a long hike. You will want to see the falls and the big bridge that is right downtown is really cool too. The best part is that everyone can enjoy it. You can access it super easily if you aren't in the mood to move, or you can walk for miles along it's shores on well Maintained trails. It's beautiful and something you will miss when you're gone!
