Stay overnight at the lodge at Kananaskis and trapse into Canmore or Banff for dinner. The next day, go for a walk around Barrier Lake. Often, I speak at fun, far away locations and I bring the partner along for a romantic getaway just the two of us. He understands that the night before a keynote, I’m unavailable for the most part because I am reviewing statistics or planning activities, but we usually stay two nights and the next night is the fun night of dinner, dancing and romancing. He brings work and utilizes the business centre (and gets quite a lot done) so it is win-win for both.
