    Airport shops=rip off...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is probably true of every city (I know it is in Mexico), but unless you are buying from the Duty Free, restrain yourself from getting Canadian Flags or T-shirts from the Airport. There are hundreds of Dollar stores around the city (and I dare you to spend a day here without seeing one) that can get you the same Maple Leaf pin or Flames sticker for 1/3rd the price...and with all that money you save, you can buy me a drink!

    Unique Suggestions: If you have to buy from the airport...well, then I guess you will just have to suck it up. I have done it as well, so I know firsthand what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger...:)

    Fun Alternatives: Bring a bag lunch, or pick up something on the way, that way you don't even have to buy lunch! And check out the Dollar stores! And even the Thrift stores if you are looking for books...they have all of Oprah's picks for sure!!!

    If you spend most of your time hiking or biking, you'll avoid this aspect. Hit the crowded spots like Moraine Lake or Lake Louise early and take off on a trail that will get you up and away from the crowd (Sentinel Pass into Paradise Valley at Moraine Lake and Fairview Mt. at Lake Louise).

    Lake Louise and Moraine Lake...

    Lake Louise and Moraine Lake are 'Tourist Traps', but you have to see them anyway - they are beautiful. Also while you're there you can leave the crowds behind and do 2 spectacular hikes - Sentinal Pass (at Moraine Lake) and Fairview Mountain at Lake Louise.
