I know I am super late in posting this, but better late than never.


Day 0 - Flew from Newark to Vancouver, checked in, Empire Landmark Hotel (***) and slept

Day 1 - We drove from our hotel to Capilano suspension bridge, spent a few hours there, great attraction to check out and not to be missed. We then drove to Grouse Mountain, went to the top of the mountain to admire the beauty, skiing is not an option in May but a trip to the top of the mountain is worth it because one can see the entire downtown Vancouver from there, came back to our hotel and crashed. Don’t miss sandbar seafood restaurant in Vancouver

Day 2 – Drove 3 hours to go to Joffre Lakes Provincial Parks, now unfortunately I could not go in as I was terribly sick but my friend did go in and had a wonderful time. There are 3 lakes and you hike up to each of the lakes. The view from each of the lakes is amazing. After we spent a considerable amount of time there, we drove back, made a quick photo stop at the Shannon waterfalls, and then drove back to our hotel and crashed, woke up and went to Gastown and explored the night life, don’t miss the steam clock there.

Day 3 – Woke up super early to catch the early AM ferry to Victoria, ferries leave from Tsawwassen terminal in Vancouver and arrive at Victoria’s Swartz Bay terminal in, we took our car with us. Once in Victoria, we drove to the best attraction there, Butchart Gardens, we were the first ones to enter and I highly recommend going there early to avoid the crowd and to get great pics. We then spent rest of the day exploring Victoria, we drove around, walked a little, ate at a few seafood places, all in all it was a great day in Victoria.

Day 4 – This day started with going to Stanley Park and relaxing, we walked around, explored the park relaxed a bit, took pics and then drove to Whistler, drove around to admire whistler’s beauty, did not spend a lot of time there. From what I understood it is a ski town, and in May one can’t really ski, so we drove back to Squamish, drove around in Squamish, admired the beauty, came back and drove the airport to catch our flight back to NYC, it was an overnight flight. Our last day was pretty much driving around, stopping, relaxing for a bit and then driving back to our next destination

I felt a 4 day trip was just perfect to explore BC
