Getting Around Locally
Self Driving
Most local hotels have free parking and getting around outside of town by car has historically been quick and convenient. In recent history, due to increased regional tourism and vehicle traffic some areas are harder to get to and find parking at. When staying in Banff or Canmore leaving the car at the hotel or campground and either walking or using transit are great options to avoid the frustration of finding parking on busy days.
