Favourite Destination: Vancouver

I love spending time in Vancouver, there is just so much to do no matter what your interests are. My top tips for a holiday to Vancouver would include the Capilano Suspension Bridge, a whale watching tour and you can’t beat Gastown for the food and drink scene! Planning a trip to Vancouver? I highly recommend adding on another couple of nights elsewhere in British Columbia during your stay such as Whistler, Victoria or Vancouver Island, especially if you love outdoor adventure!
