A white paradise in Banff

Overview

As far as nightlife, Banff is an excellent resort village to visit and experience. The Rose and Crown always have live music, as well as excellent food and beverage choices. The old spaghetti factory is a popular choice for visitors. Magpie and Stump was my favorite dining experience, with what I consider the best steaks in Alberta. With a very large array of beverages and an extremely friendly atmosphere, Magpie and Stump is an excellent pit stop for anyone to make.

Best Way To Get Around:

Maple Leaf Grill

Restaurant | "The Maple Leaf"

The Maple Leaf offers the finest food as well as service. The atmosphere is tremendous - the two-storey restaurant is finished in all maple, with the upstairs taking a rustic approach. The servers and hosts provide excellent service and suggestions for your vacation. They are locals, so they know what goes on every night of the week. The Maple Leaf has an excellent chef who provides the finest dishes I came across in my travels through Alberta.

It is a paradise for anyone that enjoys the winter weather. There are ski instructors that are very willing to help anyone, and there is an excellent restaurant that you are able to ski into right off the hill.
