  Heading West on TransCanada Highway
by Bwana_Brown

One of Calgary's main attractions is that you can have the city nightlife and also take advantage of the chance of a lifetime to visit the Canadian Rocky Mountains. These mountains are actually visible from the city, complete with snow-capped peaks when we were there. In only a little over an hour, you can be in one of Canada's 13 UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the combination of National Parks in Alberta and British Columbia that you will first enter via Banff National Park.

Take it from me, I've been around the world and seen a lot of sights - this one should not be missed! For the sake of a few dollars, it is a memory that you will always carry with you!

Directions: Take the TransCanada Highway west, you can't miss them
