Banff / Jasper - around mid-July - advice needed
I am visiting Calgary during Stampede time for work. I am thinking of extending my visit by a day or two and see the Banff / Jasper area.
1. Would 1 or 2 days be enough to see the area satisfactorily?
2. What would be my best choice for accommodation? Should I stay on the outskirts of Calgary to avoid the stamped rush / expensive hotels?
3. Should I drive from Calgary to the Banff area or should stay overnight there?
4. Anything else I should be mindful of?
