Vancouver & Whistler, British Columbia

I am standing outside the British Columbia Visitor Centre after crossing into Canada from Washington State.

The Olympic Torch Statue/Fountain in Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia

I am standing on the famous Capillano Suspension Bridge which is north of Vancouver.

Vancouver is a really beautiful city.  It is surrounded by mountains, lush forests, and lots of waterways.

This is Canada Place.  It is where the cruise ships dock when visiting Vancouver.

This is BC Place, a stadium in downtown Vancouver.

Stanley Park was one of the nicest urban parks I have ever seen.  They had these cool totem poles also.

The Sun-Yat Sen Classical Chinese Gardens in Vancouver is a nice way to spend an afternoon.

This is a view of the Whistler Village from the Blackcomb Mountain Gondola.

They had a "Fire & Ice" show on Sunday nights in 2015 when we went to Whistler.  Trained skiers and snowboarders jump through hoops of fire!

We drove up a little farther from Whistler and saw the Joffre Lakes area in British Columbia also.

    I have been to Vancouver a few times.  The first time, we explored the Capiliano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver before touring the downtown area.  Vancouver is a really scenic area.  The second time I went to Vancouver, we toured Stanley Park as well as went to Whistler.  Whistler was the site of the alpine events for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.  The Whistler Village was alive and kicking with all the skiiers and snowboaders.  They have a lot of nice restaurants and bars too for "apres ski" party.
