Not sure on the best time to visit Banff? As a former resident of town, I can tell you summer is beautiful, but it’s not necessarily the best time to go. Here’s why.
Like many, I assumed Banff would be a beautiful, tranquil town nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Locals and tourists would hike or ski most days, and the silence at night would be a nice change from city life. While it’s definitely beautiful, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, and everyone does like to hike or ski on weekends, it’s anything but quiet or tranquil.
