It's one of our neighbor to the north in Canada. It is also within driving distance to Montana.

Banff is an amazing place. I have had the privilege of visiting the area a few times over the years. I have been there both in the summer and in the middle of winter and enjoyed the lakes, hikes and mountains in the area. Not having any Montana towns on the list is a bit surprising. because of the attention the state has been getting over the past few years, but I won't complain. I will just enjoy what Montana has to offer and we can all keep our beauty a secret.
