No trip to Vancouver would be complete without seeing Stanley Park. It’s a thousand acres of restful tree-lined landscape in the midst of a bustling city. The Seawall is perfect for city and suburb views, too. And the forest is always good for a jog or a picnic. Totem poles will welcome you to the area. Imagine the Native hands that built them and let your mind wander back to an simpler time. There are also restaurants and an aquarium when your daydreaming is finished.

 

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, while not for those with a fear of heights, is great for those with a sense of architectural wonder and style. It hovers about 230 feet over the rushing Capilano River. The beautiful natural scenery will calm your senses and enhance your trip to beautiful British Columbia. There are seven other bridges here, too, so get ready for some serious walks in serious beauty. Adrenaline junkies will appreciate the adventure opportunities, too.

 

Vancouver Aquarium

Like fish? Of course you do. And BC has them in abundance, from all over the world. Home to 50,000 animals, Vancouver Aquarium is a fabulous trip. Sea otters delight, jellyfish amaze, and penguins waddle to make you laugh. Chester the false killer whale will visit you from behind his glass, too.

 

Grouse Mountain

Vancouver has nature! Grouse Mountain offers mountain scenery a short drive away if you want to get away from the city for a bit. It’s about 15 minutes away, and well worth your time. Skiing in the winter, hiking in the summer, a gondola ride, and even a lumberjack show. What’s not to love? Oh, and grizzly bears. They’re there, too.

 

The Museum of Anthropology

This amazing place houses one of the best exhibitions of First Nations art in the entire world. Appreciate its wisdom, peace, and beauty, as well as the city’s landscapes. Totem poles (they’re all over the city) will tower above, creating a sense of reverence. Enjoy the gift store, children’s shows, and the richness of Canada’s Pacific Northwest.

 

From the Air

Want a birds-eye-view? You can have it. Check out FlyOver Canada or Harbour Air. Both will fly you around the city, though in different ways. FlyOver is a flight simulator ride, and Harbour Air is an actual flight. Either way, adventure and beauty are close by.

 

Don’t forget that betterworld.com has what you need for reading material on your trip. And travelcanada.eu.org can give you the full scoop on Vancouver!

Travel Domestically in Canada to Save Money

Posted on April 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

Times are tough, or say they say. People are losing jobs faster than ever before. The cost of living, eating, and drinking are taking it’s toll on everyone living in Canada. If you are one of the lucky one’s who continue to live and work comfortably in Canada, then vacations are still on your agenda. Why deprive your family, or yourself from the thrill of travel. The main thing to consider in these tough times, is how to travel on a budget, while still seeing something unique, exotic, and fun.

Despite rising costs, gasoline is still one of the cheapest liquids you can buy. So long as you have a road worthy vehicle, drive down the Trans Canada Highway, find an undiscovered lake, river, campground, or city. In a world continuously growing smaller, Canada is still the Big Chain Supermarket when it comes to shelving space, or in this case, living space. There is sure to be somewhere you and your family will enjoy.

Check out the Maritimes, a beautiful, European-esque area of Canada. With buildings, bridges, and cities older than Canada itself. Canadians have a habit of thinking our history is dull compared to many other countries. However, with enough research and walking around, you’re sure to discover that we too hold a unique piece of western history. Halifax, Nova Scotia is a fine example of surviving the trials of history. Halifax has survived wars, fires, explosions, and even pirates. Walking down the streets of Halifax you’ll see the old bricks that were once the road and buildings that continue to house business’s.

Perhaps it’s time to brush up on those french classes you took in elementary and high school. Visit Montreal, Quebec. A city synonymous with art, culture, and fine dining. Canada is unique in that it can continue to prosper with two national languages. Montreal is the perfect example of this. A beautiful city, with friendly people. However, you’re experience will be likely improved if you brush up on your “Bonjours” and “Ou est la toilette?” If you plan on being in Montreal for a long time, I highly recommend looking into “Rosetta Stone.” It’s a great piece of software that will no doubt help you improve your linguistics ability.

If you are able to sneak out of the country for a vacation, I highly encourage you to do so, however, take a look around your own country. There is surely several areas you have yet to see.
