    • Wildlife/Stampedes & Weather!!

      Canada Sep 21, 2015 at 1:34 AM

      OK everyone has heard of the Calgary stampede, much like the Braemer Highland Games!! Are there any provincial stampedes that follow a similar format and are worth seeing

      Subjectively I know that this is difficult but when normally do the wildlife start re-emerging - we were driving to Jasper a couple of years back around mid June and there were signs are "they're awake " take precautions etc - is this the norm??

      And finally --- we would like to visit Montreal/Ottawa coming up via Boston in April/May = what is the norm for weather?

      The reason that I am asking these questions is that my Husband's UK licence expires on 2 July next year so generating codes for car hire around the Calgary stamped dates could be a problem

      A lot to ask I know but I would appreciate some info many thanks in advance

      Budget Minded Travel Options between Quebec City and Montreal

      Quebec Sep 23, 2015 at 12:34 PM

    • Travel Through Canadian Rockies

      Canada Sep 28, 2015 at 11:10 PM

      My husband and I will be travelling to Vancouver arriving on 8 May 2016 - we are Australians. We plan to spend a few days in Vancouver and then hire a car to travel through the Canadian Rockies. We are interested in visiting new places and checking out the cities as well as enjoying wonderful scenery. We have never been here before so would welcome advice on the following subjects.

      1. How long should we allow in Vancouver.
      2. Driving conditions at that time of year - not used to real winter weather driving and we drive on the other side of the road.
      3. What route should we take to see the best scenery and how long should we allow for travelling and stopping at different locations - overnight stays or more than one night at each stop.
      4. How easy is it to get accommodation at that time of year - should we book ahead.

      We would welcome any suggestions on accommodation (we usually look for something that is well located but aren't too fussy, as long as it has a clean and has it's own bathroom), as well as suggestions of what places to stop at and what to see. All comments and suggestions welcome :-)

    • Vancouver to Los Angeles

      Vancouver Sep 29, 2015 at 5:17 AM

      Hi there,

      Looking at going on a tour that finishes in Vancouver, and then will be meeting friends in Los Angeles, just wondering is there any suggestions on a good way to get to Los Angeles from Vancouver.

      Besides flying, or taking a straight bus trip, is there any companies that offer trips between these two cities that offer a bit of sight seeing in the process. Or what is something I go could do as an adventure and able to sight see?

      I'm not confident to go off totally on my own, but would like to possibly have a journey to be able to see and along the coast from Vancouver and Los Angeles.

      Cheers muchly,

      One day in Halifax with kids

      by worldtrekker Online Now Apr 17, 2012 at 5:04 PM

      My chiropractor and his family are going on the Disney to Canada cruise (5 days from NY) in July. Since I spent over a month in Nova Scotia in the fall of 2010, he asked me for advice on where he could go in Halifax, when they are in port. He wasn't sure how many hours they have. Has anyone done this cruise? He has 5 children ranging in age from 10-18. I only spent 1 day in Halifax, as I spent the majority of my trip in Cape Breton. I suggested the Citadel as a good option that the parents, as well as the kids would enjoy. He mentioned they may also do some kayaking. Does anyone have other suggestions? Thanks!
