This photo of the Vancouver Harbour was taken from Stanley Park. During a two-day visit, the itinerary, in part, included a Hop On Hop Off Tour that took us through Stanley Park, a visit to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, dinner and walk through Gastown and a walk along the waterfront at Canada Place.
Say Yes to a Short Trip:
We often think we need a week or more in any one place to make it a worthwhile visit. Having had opportunities for brief stop overs in many destinations with as little as 24 hours, here are my suggestions for having a great trip. First, be realistic. Research and planning is the best way to get the most out of a location, but that doesn't always happen. Cramming too much in may end up leaving you too overwhelmed and tired to enjoy the experience.

We all come from somewhere; large city, small town, rural village. How often have you heard, from friends or neighbours, “You know, I’ve lived here a long time and I’ve never seen/done that”? More and more people are opting for “staycations”, whether due to time, money or both. Visiting in and around where you live can be a great alternative to the traditional vacation.
