    • 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

      I will be visiting Kootenay and surrounds for the first time the last week of June. I am an avid wildlife and nature photographer and can only find general info on locales. I enjoy getting up early and also love to hike but, not as far as I used to. :o) We are staying at Radium Hot Springs.

      I am looking for wildlife hotspots, wildflower meadows and good places for closeups. Any good nighttime locations for the milky way. My habits range from broad scenics to macro, birds to mammals.

    • 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!!

    • Lake Louise area or Canmore

      Province of British Columbia Feb 14, 2014 at 3:56 PM

      Planning a trip across the Rockies. Staying in Jasper for a few nights then driving the beautiful ice-fields parkway on to Lake Louise. Staying here and then making way back to Calgary to fly home. My dilemma is should we spend more time in the lake louise area and visit Banff from here then onto Canmore for an overnight before flying back from Calgary. OR spend more nights in Canmore also visiting Banff? Basically I suppose I am asking is there more to see and do (spectacular scenery) around Lake Louise area or around Canmore? Any advice greatly appreciated.

      Have any other tourists had trouble taking out money in Vancouver?

      Vancouver Feb 1, 2014 at 12:19 PM

      This happeneds every time we go to Vancouver. We have to go to several different ATMs or banks, before we finally find one that will let us take out Canadian money. A lot of stores will only take credit cards, but there are some places where you need cash, so we always like to have a little, but we always have problem taking out cash in Canada. And some places to not accept American money.
      I know thousands of Americans visit Canada everyday, and some how are able to pay for things, so maybe they know something I don't.
      I don't know if this is a problem in all of Canada, just big cities, or just Vancouver, but for some reason, banks and ATMs never let us take out Canadian cash.
      Does anyone else have this problem? If not, what do you do to take out Canadian currency? Because this is ridiculous. It wastes a lot precious time. Can you exchange your cash at the border?
      I have family in Vancouver, and they are some how able to get American money, but it's really difficult for us to get Canadian money.
      IDK. We've been to different countries in Europe, and all we do is slide our card, and enter our pin, and it gives us the local currency. IDK why this is always a problem in Canada.

      Itinerary Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle

      Vancouver Jan 4, 2014 at 6:22 AM

      My husband and I (both late 50's) would like to fly into Seattle, WA, then visit Vancouver, Victoria, Tofino, and possibly Whistler this coming summer for about 10 days. We would probably only rent a car for day trips since we enjoy walking around and exploring the destination we are in. Amtrak and ferries would be fine. Since we are from Florida we would like to see glaciers and whales if that's possible. Any ideas for an itinerary and what is the best time to go?
