Hi! I’ve been searching this forum on Banff and have found a lot of great information! So, thank you for all of the great questions and answers. I’m still not finding what all I need to know! A friend and I are planning to come to Calgary in June 2019 to run the Banff Marathon (well, the half because we have hiking plans). We plan to do some great hiking and sightseeing as well. We want to see Lakes Louise and Moraine, and if time allows, maybe go to Jasper. We are also interested in doing some sightseeing in Calgary.
Recommendations, please!! We don’t know how many days for sure at this time, but we are thinking around 6-7. Recommendations on lodging in Banff and possibly Jasper, and also Calgary. We don’t want anything super expensive because we are flying in, needing a rental car, running a race (registration fees) and we are traveling as friends who are splitting costs. We are thinking something with a cooking area so we can cut some cost there with cooking some of our meals. And, anyone have advice on what to do or rather what we must do? We think the race is on Sunday, so we would come in on Friday most likely and fly back out the following Wednesday or Thursday. Thanks so much!!
