Unlike its larger cousin down south, Jasper is a lot more laid back. Sure, Banff has its fancy stores, hotels, and restaurants but Jasper provides pretty much everything you need for your vacation away from the city. After all, did you travel all this way to go shopping or to explore the outdoors? Jasper is small enough that you don't get lost in traffic but big enough to fill your tummy, gas tank, and cheesy tourist shirt needs.

Right by the train station, you'll find a handsome totem pole that replaced a controversial one a few years ago.

Yes, the town's setting is spectacular

and you can enjoy a whole afternoon just basking in the early spring sun

but it's time to stretch those legs and go beyond downtown into the hills to experience the Rockies in all their glory
