Banff, Alberta, Canada
It is the massive Alberta Rockies that bring tourists to Banff year after year. However, this year Alberta is motivated to attract more tourism since there has been a 6.5 percent drop in visitors over the last few years due to the world's economic climate.
Styled after a Scottish Baronial Castle in the heart of Banff National Park, the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel is offering reduced rates this summer. A room that normally costs $353 is now $265 a night.
Take the Banff Gondola ride for a spectacular view of the Banff National Park. Entrance into the National park is inexpensive at just about $10 for each adult. There are lots of specialty shops in the alpine village of Banff such as the "Bear and the Butterfly" a wonderful shop devoted to the Banff National park.
