1st visit to Canada with 3 children (9,13,16)

We are planning our first visit to Canada and we have been told Vancouver is a must. Looking for ideas for a 2 week trip around the area. Will hire a car but don’t want to be moving hotel every night.

Whale watching, aquarium and bears would be great plus some beach time if possible.

Hi

This is the forum for the city of Vancouver, Washington. It's near Portland, Oregon. It is not in Canada.

You get to pick your own Must See or Must Do.

Try the Vancouver BC forum. Be sure to read the Top Questions on the right side of that forum page.

You are not flying into Seattle are you? If you are flying in and out of Vancouver also consider Vancouver Island and the lovely Gulf Islands. If ou want to see Killer Whales the Gulf Island would be a great place to whale watch from. Seeing bear can involve a lot of luck. One of the best places in the world to see Orcas is Telegraph Cove. They have bear tours out of Campbell River both on Vancouver Island. This may be much farther than you want to drive and you start getting pretty remote, but a couple of suggestions. Not sure what kind of vacation you are looking for.
