    • How to plan a week's vacatiion to cover Vancouver, Seattle and Whistler.

      Vancouver Apr 9, 2014 at 8:45 PM

      We are a family of four (boy 19 and girl 14) and will be flying from Calgary to Vancouver for a week only and would like to visit Vancouver, Seattle and Whistler. How many days in Seattle would you recommend? what about Whistler, over night stay or two nights? I was not sure if we should go straight to Seattle from Vancouver on day we arrive from Calgary. This will be our first Vancouver visit. Three years ago, we drove from Calgary to Victoria, so we want to avoid Victoria this time. Any recommendations for sightseeing in Vancouver that we can do in three or four days?

      Thanks

    • Probability/cost of a sublet/condo Jan-March?

      Whistler Apr 3, 2014 at 7:44 PM

      Looking to do a half season from around New Years to the end of March. Anyone know the typical availability of mid-term accommodation during the peak time of the year? Won't have a car so walking/bussing is necessary. Would love to be in village but if it is significant savings to be a little further out that's okay. How much will a room in a 3-BR typically run me? What about a 1-BR? Or is this very hard to do?

      Price range is $800-$1300

      Thanks

    • Vancouver Island (BC) or Olympic National Park (WA)

      Vancouver Apr 8, 2014 at 3:46 AM

      I am planning a trip to Western Canada in early june. I will only have 7 days to go from Vancouver, BC, to Seattle.

      Therefore, I have two options to enjoy the place :
      - going to Vancouver Island (Pacific Rim :Tofino) from Vancouver and leaving to Seattle from Victoria, BC (with ferry)
      - or just crossing Vancouver Island to get to Port Angeles and the Olympic National Park (Vancouver -> Victoria and Victoria -> Port Angeles by ferries)

      As I will be getting to Vancouver area from the Canadian Rockies (Banff, Jasper), I am not especially looking for mountains in these coastal parks. I am more looking for oceans and rainforest instead. But I'm not sure which park would be the best option (Pacific Rim or Olympic National Park).

      Can someone give me some advice? If you had to choose between both, which one would you visit?

      Thank you in advance!!

      The 12meter high white statue in Kelowna is so grand I'd like to purchase a smaller statue for our coffee table if possible. Does anyone in the Okanagan know of a store (online or otherwise) that sells mini versions of this masterpiece? I'm in Edmonton, a province away and can't get back there any time soon.

      Soft Cherry Cider

      by SandiM Online Now May 2, 2011 at 8:15 AM

      I spent a couple years in Kelowna as a wee child and fondly remember the Valley Fruit Stand on Harvey Avenue which is no longer there (not as a fruit stand anyway). One of the things that I cherished was the cold cherry cider (non-alcoholic) they used to serve from a keg--it was delicious! I've visited Kelowna on the occasional long-weekend over the years without thinking about that cider but suddenly the memory of has come back to me and on my next trip (coming up in a couple weeks) I'd like to sample that good old cherry cider once again. Can anyone tell me where I can find some bottles of it? Would love to bring a couple bottles back to Edmonton with me too. Please and thanks!

      Long Weekend visit to the Okanagan

      by aqazi Online Now May 8, 2005 at 4:18 PM

      A question for fellow BC folks. We have some friends coming over form the UK in June and we wanted to take them west (mainly because we want to go!). They're in VanC for a couple of week but they're going to spend some time in Vic and then head on to Banff so we were going to take them as far as Kelowna and then they can do the rest themselves. We were are contemplating four days from the 23rd- 26th of June (Cherry season I hear).

      23rd - To start we were going to head for Manning Provincial Park via a stop over at Harrison Hot Springs.
      24th - Visit to Penticton (were thinking of stopping a night here).
      25th - Kelowna for the final night before driving back to VanC

      Other than visiting vineyards and hiking what else does the Okanagan have in store for us? We were going to camp at Manning Park but as for where to stay in Kelowna and Penticton any recommendations will be appreciated. In addition would it be more advisable to base ourselves out of just one town as they're pretty close together.

      All tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    • kid friendly beaches and U-Pick farms

      by SimplyAngel123 Online Now Jul 26, 2004 at 11:03 AM

      Hi we're thinking of taking a trip to the Kelowna area to visit a nice sandy beach and hopefully to find an orchard or farm that offers u-pick for maybe strawberries or peaches? I know about the park right in Kelowna along the lake but was wondering if anyone knows one that might not be quite as busy but is still easy to get to with young kids. My girls are 5 & 7 and don't like walking a long ways plus won't pee in bushes so we need at least an outhouse. I know there are orchards that offer tours but I haven't been able to find much info on u-pick farms and what seasons carry what fruit. We're thinking August this year. So any suggestions?
