I stopped in and had a few questions for staff. They were very helpful. The gift shop is stocked well and there is a lot of good information for visitors. My kids really enjoyed the gondola outside.

An excellent place to stop to admit the attractive mountain style architecture as well as finding lots of information in pamphlets and by talking to the knowledgeable staff.

This is where the wonderful French-Canadian woman gave me good information about Golden and recommended the wonderful restaurant there, The Turning Point. Great regular meals! Slightly pricey, but worth it--every dish was great.

1km after Golden when you are heading Banff. Helpful information, good free wifi ... And it is a Pokestop where your teens can reload.
