Banff: Summer Arts Festival
Every year, The Banff Centre invites professional artists from across Canada and around the world, in order to create the Banff Summer Arts Festival. There is a lot of creative energy you can experience when listening to Jazz music, watching plays or admiring contemporary literature. Head towards Banff if you are in for an arts experience in the brisk mountain air of Banff National Park!

Depending on the weather, I can definitely recommend one thing:
– Rent a bike or a car and drive to West Vancouver, all the way up Cypress Mountain until you arrive at the Highview Lookout Point.
It is a very popular viewing area and can be very busy at times. But when I have been there last weekend there was almost nobody.
You have a spectacular view over Vancouver with the sunset in the back. Simply G-E-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!
