An iconic route

You can't go wrong with this route if you're headed to Banff. Calgarians might know a few of these places, but there are other great recommendations. Lot of great options for each stop.

Get this if you're taking a trip to the rockies!

We're from Toronto and have done a few Guess Where trips in the past, when planning our trip out to Alberta in June we decided to order this. Great decision. It seemed like a pretty common route to take to the rockies, but it had suggestions we wouldn't have thought of on our own. We didn't end up doing the Jasper suggestions because it was pretty far. But they looked good too. Definitely worth the purchase.
