"There aren’t any signs leading to this beautiful spot, but you’ll know you’ve reached it when the historic Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel suddenly comes into view. This spectacular and surprising viewpoint is where most of the famous photos of the ‘Castle of the Rockies’ have been taken. It’s an incredibly picturesque spot with Bow River in the foreground and Sulphur Mountain in the background."
"Your jaw might just drop when you round the corner and take in the classic view of Banff Springs Hotel at the base of Sulphur Mountain. It only takes a few minutes to drive to this scenic lookout just east of town on the north shore of the Bow River. With older kids, you could even walk there from town on the Bow River Trail."
"The charming Banff Avenue was lined with many galleries, restaurants and stores. It helped a lot that sunset was at almost 10 PM everyday. Don’t miss strolling through this resort town surrounded by rugged mountain peaks."
"Banff-goers of a certain age might remember this space as the notorious nightclub and bad-decision factory Silver City. These days it’s home to High Rollers, a bowling alley-beer hall-pizza joint. Lace up a pair of retro-styled kicks and hit the lanes, then move the party over to the neon-lit bar area where long wooden tables practically guarantee that you’ll end up making friends."
"High Rollers is more commonly known as “the bowling alley” because that’s exactly what it is. Don’t be fooled by its humble exterior because inside it’s a really nice spot – think bowling alley meets upscale ski chalet. This pub-atmosphere is great for an evening out or a few beers après-ski!"
"If you’re after the best pizza in Banff head to High Rollers for some bowling. It’s your old school bowling alley that feels grungy, instead, you’ll find modern decor, craft beer, wings, and delicious NY style pizza. Don’t miss out on their super tasty waffle fries or poutine."

"This new room is actually an outpost of a celebrated Quebec-based Italian restaurant, but the cabin-chic design makes the transplant feel right at home in the Moose Hotel. Though there are other Italian restaurants in Banff, Pacini is the only one serving brunch on weekends (with mouth-watering offerings like capicollo and pesto eggs benny, and breakfast lasagna crepes stuffed with ham, spinach and alfredo sauce) and breakfast everyday. If you're there later in the day, you can't go wrong with asparagus and shrimp risotto, or the Italian feast for two with steak, sausage, asparagus topped with Sicilian sea salt."
