I've been to Banff and it is beautiful! My mother was from Canada. So yes it was important to see my mother's homeland. I went there again about four years ago to show my husband the beauty of Banff.

Since my husband is from England I'm hoping the next time we are able to travel across the pond I'll get to see this area.

Sometimes we take it for granted because it's so close. But it is beautiful. and it is rich in history too. Did you know that back in the late 19th century and early 20th century it was known as America's Spa?
Take a walk down Bathhouse Row and give yourself a spa day, do some shopping or take a hike on one of the beautiful trails and check out some of the natural hot springs.
One thing is for sure, we should all be proud that Arkansas has this beautiful National Park and so many beautiful state parks too! Be sure to see the entire list of The World's Most Stunning National Parks.
