Vancouver has been called “New York’s cool sibling.” The city’s diverse neighborhoods are best explored on foot. Take a guided foodie tour, or simply drift from boutique to brew pub – from one neighborhood to the next. Embark on a whale-watching cruise, stroll the waterfront at Stanley Park and shop First Nations and other B.C. arts and crafts on Granville Island.
Whistler is a two-hour drive from Vancouver, but another world entirely. A one-of-a-kind, glass-bottom gondola system links Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, soaring a mile above glacial Fitzsimmons Creek. World renowned spa treatments, the Rocky Mountaineer Train, zip-lining, golf, white-water rafting, ATV tours, horseback riding, jet boating, and summer bobsleigh tours are all available.
