As always, turn to the Dope for important life questions. Taking the 3 bambinas and a pop up trailer to Banff National Park this weekend. Village 2 campground if anyone knows or cares. Been trying to go for the past few years but didn’t work out, and the eldest bambina is going off to University in el-lay, so gotta go this time or may not have another summer opportunity.
What recommendations, must see, don’t miss, places to go nearby (I think there are 5 national parks within a couple hours drive), restaurants in town to check out, etc.???
Banff National Park will be the base and where we spend most of our time. I’ve been to Calgary for work multiple times, so that’s not on the menu.
Also, has anyone driven from the Seattle area? I’m thinking to go via Vancouver and return via Idaho just to change up the scenery but not wedded to either plan. Well, prolly go thru Vancouver just to get brunch at one of the great Shanghaiese restaurants. Probably stop overnight at some flea bag motel on the way, and power drive the entire trip on the backside. Is there a recommended route?
I’m sure there are more questions but wanted to kick this off.
