Drumheller, Alberta is home to dinosaurs, cute shops, art galleries and still more dinosaurs. If you are looking to go camping in the general area but feel the prices are a bit more than you can stomach, never fear! There is free camping near Drumheller and the town of Rowley will not disappoint.
Rowley is officially a ghost town, having once had a lot more residents than it currently does.

Stunning mountains greet you on all sides in Banff, Alberta, where the town site lies in a river valley, wrapping around Tunnel Mountain. Located in Banff National Park, a UN World Heritage Site, Banff plays host to hot springs, gorgeous views, wildlife and many tourists. With a tourism industry since the 1880s, Banff has lots to offer, which can make it tricky to plan a Banff Girls’ Weekend Itinerary. After driving into Banff National Park, check in to The Fox Hotel & Suites, located right on the main street of Banff Avenue. The Fox Hotel & Suites offers the perfect room for a Banff Girls’ Weekend in their Two Bedroom Superior Suites. These suites offer four double beds plus a pull out couch, so everyone has lots of space but can still share the same hotel suite! There are also two full bathrooms, several televisions and a small kitchenette. The kitchenettes include coffee and tea makers, a microwave, a mini fridge, a bar sink, plates and cutlery and most importantly, wine glasses! The best feature of the hotel, however, is the amazing indoor/outdoor grotto-style hot pool.
