    • Weather April/May

      Quebec Jan 6, 2017 at 12:21 PM

      To those of you who have helped and advised with the NZ trip I'm grateful but we simply can't afford it - so we're heading back to Canada

      Our rough proposed plan is to fly into Boston drive up through Lake Placid and on to Montreal/Ottawa/Quebec City -not sure if it's worth visiting Halifax so might well come back a more direct route. Thinking of visiting April/May but what about snowfall? All suggestions much appreciated - not into outdoor activities but very much folk music and historic sites - we've done Niagra

      Also on my want to do list is to see the Canadian Mounted Police show - I'm visiting their website daily but from past experience is there liable to be a show in Ottawa at this time of year

    • One week time in British Columbia. Suggestions ?

      Canada Dec 23, 2016 at 10:14 PM

      We are looking to spend one weeks time in British Columbia area, which is next week. Considering weather and roads, we believe Victoria, Tofino or may be Vancouver should be ok. We are coming from Portland.
      We are not into shopping, snow sports or food, but more keen to see natural sceneries. Though Tofino and Victoria have been discussed a lot on forums, I am not able to find, when question comes, what should see in Victoria in 3 days and what should I see in Tofino in 3 days.
      Can somebody help us with this ?

      It might be a good idea to delete your personal picture, eg, face from your profile and any personal information as who knows what will be done with the information once VT is no longer active. Think of doing this from a security aspect.

      We're meeting another family over the holidays while we are both visiting in southern Ontario, and were hoping for something like a children's drop-in play space in Mississauga since it is about midway between our families.

      One of our fellow VT-ers, Najatnaser, is going to be staying, with her family, at the Ports Hotel on Port St., in Mississauga. According to the website the nearest intersection is Lakeshore & Hurontario. Are any of the Mississauga folks familiar with this area? I'm not finding much help on what I see on Mapquest. Is this a safe area? Is there shopping - particularly grocery stores - nearby? How long a walk would it be to the Port Credit GO station? I'm sure she'd appreciate any help anyone can give her. Thanks, Jane
