Vancouver is a bustling modern city that presents a beautiful skyline set against British Columbia's imposing Coast Mountains. If your group catches flights to Vancouver, you can visit pristine beaches, old-growth rain forests, and an entertainment district that is filled with bars and nightclubs.
Driving In and Around Vancouver
When you arrive in the city, check into one of the many Vancouver hotels so you can relax in luxury and have plenty of time to see the city's sights. Because you'll land in Richmond, which is about fifteen miles from city center, you may want to think about van or car rentals in Vancouver while planning your vacation. Drive across the Lion's Gate Bridge to North Vancouver and try skiing at Whistler, or head over to English Bay. If you're into people-watching and nature in an urban environment, Stanley Park is the place to be. When you're ready for a side trip to Vancouver Island, drive to Ladner and catch a ferry at the Horseshoe Bay Terminal.
Exploring Beautiful British Columbia
Opt for a rental car in Vancouver, and you can visit the surrounding areas easily. For a stunning view, you can drive to Simon Fraser University and see the city from the top of Burnaby Mountain. Granville Island sits between Vancouver and Richmond, and it's where the locals head for fresh produce and seafood. If you're into the pub life, you've got to enjoy an evening visiting the clubs of Granville Street. Or if you prefer relaxing in nature to the sound of cascading water, Lynn Canyon is just across the Burrard Inlet from Vancouver. If you're visiting in the winter, you may want to rent a truck to get through the snow more easily.
