    Spent our honeymoon in Vancouver and Victoria. Lovely places. Lots of fun things for families to do!

    I rented bicycles for the whole family on Denman st near Stanley park. It was an ordeal to rent. Wish the city had a bicycle program. However, once done. a tandem bike, trailer tow behind bike for babies and 2 mid size bikes for 9 years and one adult bike to tow the babies and helmuts for everyone. We had a wonderful time. Spent all day bike riding around the park. Stopped for lunch, stretched our legs. continued around the seawall. Stopping at the many beaches to explore, fish and chips, playgrounds, ice-cream, big trees. We had so much fun and the kids did too. I really recommend this activity. It was well worth it and will do again

    We will be in Vancouver in Aug. We will be driving all the way from Oklahoma. Winning would help us out so much. My 8 year old son is so excited to visit Canada.

    I have dual citizenship, but have never been to Vancouver yet. Would LOVE to! I just finished cancer treatment, so it would be an amazing time to relax & recover!
