3,2, 1, Go: How to Make the Most of a Short Trip
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.
