Park's Day - July 17, 2010

Saturday July 17th is Parks Day and entry into all national parks and national historic sites are free! This is the perfect opportunity to come to Banff for a visit; you are saving money by not having to pay park fees, while learning more about our history and how Banff National Park came to be. Here are some of the activities happening in Banff on Park's Day; interpretive activities, a national parks quiz, guided hike around Vermilion lake, skits by theatre troupe Mountain WHIT, etc! Activities will take place between 9:30am and 9pm

Things that I recommend to check out when in Banff for Parks Day:

~Banff Cave and Basin (national historic site; so entrance is free on July 17)
~Banff Upper Hot Springs
~Banff Gondola
~Lake Minnewanka (ensure you drive around the whole loop to hopefully see some mountain goats)
~Drive along the Bow Valley Parkway (the 1A) towards Lake Louise to hopefully see some wildlife
~Hike Tunnel Mountain; a mini mountain in town that offers wicked good views
