This city is one of the prettiest, it's a buzz of activity right in downtown especially near the waterfront and gas town. You can walk all day and not get bored with all the happenings. The best view of downtown is on the north shore...More

Bus was open and it was cold. I thought bus would have open air seating as well as closed seating. At many stops there was no room for people to get on bus so they had to wait for next bus. It was a waste...More

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is
bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their
lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's
plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and
corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau
restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping
options. However, located right on the waterfront of
Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also

I have never been to Vancouver and am wondering if it snows in the city or if we can find snow nearby? We are thinking of visiting the week of christmas? My kids want to stay where it snows but I don't want to stay too far from the city. Any suggestions?

Vancouver is a "walking" city with great public transit. Whistler is a great little town, but if you only have one day, I would skip it as it's quite a drive there & back. Instead, I would enjoy Stanley, Granville Island... More

I have 8 days to go between Vancouver and Seattle - for those of you who know both of these areas and what's inbetween, I'm wondering how much time you'd spend in both towns and how much time you'd take driving (including stops to whatever may be interesting to see inbetween). thanks for your thoughts!

I presume you are renting a car, since you have 8 days to tour around I would suggest that you see Vancouver first, google "Sites in Vancouver" and it shows an array of things and places to see. Stanley Park is a must... More
