Canadian Rockies Road Trip – Canmore, Alberta

Our first stop on our Canadian Rockies Road Trip was the small town of Canmore. We decided to stay here, rather then Banff which is another 24km north, as it was easier (and cheaper) for accommodation. This turned out to be an excellent choice as Canmore was a delightful small town and actually more impressive than and not as touristy as Banff.

Canmore had beautifully tree-lined streets with small shops and restaurants and easy to walk around.

Just a short distance from the main street you found yourself on small walking paths along the river offering some stunning views of the surrounding mountains.

Local graffiti brightened up some of the buildings in the small town.

One thing that stood out immediately as we started to travel in Canada was the availablity of cannabis which is legal in this country. I laughed at the signposts here …. cannabis to the left … beer to the right …. decisions, decisions!

There was a large selection of local craft beers available and these were excellent – I ended up buying quite a variety in the local liquor store to try during our trip.

As we left Canmore the following morning to head north to Banff we had a magnificent panoramic view of the mountains.
