    • Activities for 9 year old granddaughter

      Victoria May 18, 2015 at 12:13 PM

      My 9 year old granddaughter will be traveling with me for a Grandma/Granddaughter trip in a few weeks, staying in the Inner Harbor area. I've been to the area several times with my husband and am familiar with the regular spots; fisherman's wharf, Beacon Hill Park, Royal BC Museum,Empress Tea Room, Parliament Bldg.,etc. Would like some suggestions for some unusual things to do that would be of interest to a 9 year old who loves art, music, history. We will have 3 full days and will have a car. Any festivals happening the week of May 25?

    • Where do I leave my clothes when going to the wreck beach

      Vancouver 49 minutes ago

      hi, this is a question that came to my head and I was surprised that no website answers the question of where to put the clothes when on the wreck beach. I haven't been to the Wreck beach before. I plan to visit there soon next month and stroll the beach in the nude. If I drive, is it fine to leave them in the car and be naked during the walk to the beach? What do folks who take the public transport do? Are there lockers to rent? Should I be worried that they can get stolen if I just leave them on the beach and stroll from end to end?

      May be I am concerned over nothing and there may a practical solution to it but I rather be prepared than sorry.

      Thank you,
      Annie

      best taxi company?

      Victoria Apr 13, 2015 at 11:22 AM

      I have been researching means of getting to the airport from Victoria BC. I have looked at the reviews of 3 taxi companies, and the reviews aren't very helpful because one will rate a *****, and the other will only a *. I usually throw out the highest and lowest, but in this case, they are all either extreme. I usually like the Yellow Cab, but reviews have not been good. Neither have the ones for Blue Bird Taxi or Victoria Taxi. Which one would you use?? Thanks!

      VT Mini Meet October 2015

      Vancouver Apr 3, 2015 at 10:01 PM

      Expressions of Interest wanted :o) We will be in Vancouver early October and would love to meet up with some locals.
      So far we have Ann75, the_dutchman, YVRDave and Darby 2 interested in saying hello.
      We are staying at the Granville Island Hotel and I guess the best place on Granville Island would be the Dockside Seafood Restaurant.
      So my question is, which date is more suitable, dinner on Friday 9th October?..... lunch/dinner on Saturday 10th October?
      We would love to include a bit of a photo shoot on the river. Maybe some boat light trails or time-lapse photography, or nice night light photos :o)
      So, who's interested?... and which day suits you the best?
      Hope to see you all there!
      Hugs, Ann and Howie xx

    • Itinerary/things to do

      Vancouver Island Dec 30, 2014 at 3:14 AM

      As will be seen from previous question we plan to visit end of June

      Proposed itinerary - really need some helpful practical suggestions as to what to see/ferry routes

      Depart Horseshoe Bay crossing to Nanaimo Bay - do we need to book this crossing as we will have a car??

      Drive to Victoria - suggestions as to what to see greatly appreciated

      Day 2 Circular tour from Victoria - Lake Cowichan - Port Renfrew - Sooke - Victoria - OK long day - Google calculates 4hr 29 264 KM - not so sure going on the coast via Sooke would have preferred to have cut back in through national park - or what looks like national park on map but showing no roads - may be the costal route is picturesque

      Is it worth visiting Campbell River

      Costing of inside passage from Port Hardy-Port Rupert seems horribly expensive and we simply can't afford it . Also we do not do small boats only major drive on ferries - so trips to islands would not be possible

      Depart via Toll Bridge from Victoria to Port Angeles - any idea of fees as website seems ambiguous

      Many thanks

    • Visitor attractions

      Vancouver Dec 30, 2014 at 2:20 AM

      Would appreciate some advice as to the pros and cons of the following attractions - we have a1/2 days in Vancouver and the following list might well have very similar exhibits - equally some of these might well be orientated to children rather than adults

      Visit Kilby Historic site – quirky opening times - seems a little small
      Klahowya village in Stanley Park - presume that this is more of a craft village
      Britannia Village National Historic Site
      Gastown historic end of Vancouver
      London Heritage Farm Richmond -
      Burnaby Village Museum – MUST GO ON MONDAY AS MARKET = could this be a better option than Kilby Historic site

      Plan to visit June/July - are there any aboriginal displays

      Hoping someone can help - wishing everyone a Happy New Year albeit a little early. Thanx

      Is it worth putting on a 13 hour return trip and 2 over night stops to see this town. Planning to drive up from Revelstoke and Kamloops then head back to Whistler. Yes the town looks interesting but in all practicality can we justify the mileage and cost - roughly how long will it take to see - possibly compare it to Colonial Williamsburg USA. May be there are interesting places on route to justify this journey. Also thought of visiting Sandon Ghost town - is this like Bodie in the USA

      6 people travelling from airport, one uses electric travel scooter. He can get himself in/out of buses if there are rails to pull himself up. Scooter can be lifted into bus by family members. We are excited to be going to Victoria, but have more enthuiasm than money. There is so much we want to do, but taxi fares are out of the equation.
      We understand the 72x travels this route, takes approx. 1 hour?
      Questions, is there a better bus route we can take? Will we be able to use Victoria Transit with a disabled person? Are transit tickets sold at the airport. Thanks so much. My Email if needed: doingmybest007@gmail.com.
