    I need Recommendations for hotels in Vancouver.

    I just came back from staying two nights at the Comfort Inn in North Vancouver which is just across the Lion's Gate Bridge from Vancouver http://www.vancouvercomfort.com/contact_us.html#location and was pleasantly surprised with the quiet although it was right beside a major road. The prices are reasonable and it is close to everything! about 7 years ago

    Looking for suggestions for great 6 week road/river/sea trip around British Columbia

    Stroll Vancouver, starting at the Airport; then take the skytrain downtown to check out the Granville Island Market and Robson St. heading towards English Bay. Go to Boston Bar taking the Full-Monty Nahatlatch River Classic vacation, with "REO Rafting Resort". Get back on VIA Rail and check out the confluence of two rivers at the wild beaches of Lytton. You can go gold panning, check out Hell's Gate, and go geocaching as well. Rent a car, take the number 12 highway North to Lillooet to get rugged-climbing the local mountains, but check the Visitor Center to find out which mountains and what you need for safety. Take the 99 to Mt. Currie and learn crafts with the Lil'Wat Nation. There is lots to do around Pemberton area. If you're feeling spry enough and get there in late May, enter the technical marathon xc bike race, "NIMBY 50"; otherwise take the trails on your own time. There are many local Lodges or you can camp at Birkenhead Lake Provincial Park, and add a nice drive through the Meadows, or fishing in the local lakes. Maybe you'll find some pumice like they used for the floating bridge. Whistler is next. There is rock climbing, biking and hiking trails, lots of golfing, skate boarding, and fun shops to explore, with a multitude of activities from adventure backcountry to zip lining. You will not want to leave Whistler. In Brackendale, stay at local Tantalus Provincial Park and canoe, climb, fish, hike, hunt, and swim until you can't anymore. Find out what a Yurt is there. Stop along the way at the newly renamed Britannia Mine Museum, and see the history of toughness in BC. Perhaps, dare the slopes of Furry Creek... Take a detour over to Gibsons Landing. Enjoy the fresh sea air, and see where The Beachcomber's series was filmed for television. Go to the Jazz Festival, take part in zero-waste art lessons, cruise the daily markets, or just enjoy the unique shops. Bowen Island might take you longer. Become one of the early 'Summer People'. Take the trail behind the Steamship Company Marina and just keep going. Come back to the village for food. You'll enjoy it. Tour the village(s) Horseshoe Bay, North Vancouver, and then back to the airport. over 8 years ago

    Best thing to do in osoyoos?

    Definitely check out Nk'Mip the finest (and possibly only-still) First Nations vineyard. Here is the link: http://www.nkmipcellars.com/ about 8 years ago
