      Vancouver - view from the tallest building

      Vancouver 8 hours ago

      Would someone by any chance know if this is possible and how is one supposed to go about it?


    • Barkersville Historic Goldrush town

      Province of British Columbia Dec 21, 2014 at 1:57 AM

      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

      All help greatly appreciated

    • Roadtrip renting a minivan with 2 + mattress in the back

      Canada 4 hours ago


      Me and my girlfriend are planning a roadtrip from 13 july untill the 3rd of august. The trip would start in vancouver going to jasper-banff-glacier-yellowstone-and back to vancouver. We have endlessly been looking for a low budget campervan for 2 persons. So far the only thing coming close to what we are looking for the is the campervans wicked is renting out, but actually those are still a bit expensive for us.

      So we recently got this crazy idea to rent a minivan like a chrysler town & country or a Dodge Grand Caravan and just dump a double mattress in the back of the car. This way we should be able to save over 1300$.

      So i was wondering if you guys think this is a good idea or not? For example do you think it is doable to just stand on a parking lot somewhere or on the side of the road and sleep there ? We would like to be completely 'free' and just drive and see where we end up not always having to look for a campsite every night.

      What to do..........................

      by mickey.p Online Now Oct 14, 2013 at 4:20 AM

      Myself, partner and our 14 year old son (who has Aspergers) are coming to Canada in late December - around 20th.
      We have friends who live in 20km from Barrie and we are spending lots of time with them and just wondering what people can suggest to do.

      Our loose plans are to spend 2-3 nights in Toronto on arrival - my friend has suggested the following in Toronto: Nathan Philips Square, Eaton Centre, CN Tower, Kensington Market, Snow Valley(may have that one mixed up!)?

      Then to Barrie to stay for around 5-6 days - possibly visiting Blue Mountains? but 25th and 26th would be spend not doing much, just normal Christmas Celebrations.

      We are flying out of Buffalo on 31st so thinking 2 nights in Niagara on 29th and 30th?

      My friends son also has ASD so considering staying in American or Great Wolf but only if we can get good rates!

      We are not Museum or Gallery type people but love shopping - chain stores, malls, markets and thrift stores!
      We love to people watch and if we didn't have a teenager to entertain we would spend hours in Starbucks just watching the world go by.

      Any recommendations on places to visit, things to do and places to eat could be good!

      Also be great for recommendations of where to stay in these places, we are on a budget - nothing too fancy but will pay more for better standard/location etc.

      Thanking you in advance for advice etc!
