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

      by sherryQ Online Now 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

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

      by Romain_T Online Now 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!!

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

      by briantravelman Online Now 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

      by TamersonK Online Now 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?

      Layover in Vancouver

      by bicalix Online Now Oct 30, 2013 at 8:01 PM

      So I'm traveling from Portland, OR to London via Vancouver and my layover times look a tad on the extreme: from 45min in Calgary, to 1:20h in Vancouver and 10/15h. I know its a long shot, but since I've never been to any of those airports, I just wanted to know how complicated it is to change flights in Vancouver (1:20h)? Are are there long customs queues even we are just transiting between flights (btw, is Canada like the US and even if you are just using it to switch flights you need to apply for a visa to do so?).

      I had to layover recently in Newark and had 1:30, I made it just about in time, but there was a looooot of running and having to wait in that long exasperating line for non-resident incoming foreigners.

      I would really appreciate some feedback on this!
      Thanks!

      Hi! I was wondering if I could squeeze in all the places I want to see and experience in a day or two. How do I get to these place? Are there easy access buses around? What order of IT do you suggest to maximize the time? How much maximum time can we have to spend in each place so we can take quick pictures and do some activities such as the tree tops adventure at Capilano Suspension Bridge? We will be coming from somewhere near the Vancouver airport by the way. Thanks!

      These are in my list:

      1. Stanley Park

      a. Brockton point
      b. propsect point
      c. English bay
      d. Lion's gate

      2. Grouse Mountain
      3. Capilano Suspension Bridge (tree tops adventure)
      4. Granville
