Landmarks in British Columbia
The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola travels 4.4 kilometres in just 11 minutes, transporting winter and summer guests from Whistler’s Roundhouse Lodge to the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain. Skiers and riders have the opportunity to easily take advantage of 8,171 acres of terrain via the world's longest continuous lift system. The adventure for summer visitors includes spectacular views of glaciers and peaks as well as access to an expanded hiking trail network on both mountains
Butchart GardensThese internationally acclaimed botanical gardens are organized around themes, such as the Rose Garden, the Japanese Garden and the Italian Garden. The gardens have over one million plants, all artistically arranged with not a blade or petal out of place. Special colored lighting illuminates the gardens on summer evenings and musical entertainment fills the air
Inner Harbour This scenic patch of waterfront is the location of Victoria's many tourist attractions, recreational activities, restaurants and shopping. For a special treat, have afternoon tea at the grand Empress Hotel or board a ferry for a harbor tour.
Barkerville Historic TownWith over 100 preserved historic buildings, this village is a representative of the Victorian gold rush era.
Lynn Canyon ParkLynn Canyon Park officially opened to the public in 1912 and has been a popular destination among tourists and local residents ever since. Lynn Canyon Park is a great location for a family picnic, a leisurely hike, or a refreshing swim in one of the many popular swimming holes.
Vancouver Downtown
Granville IslandIt is nice to take a day, perhaps 2 -3 times a year and explore Granville Island.  It is best to go during the week, as weekends are very busy and parking is at a premium. Getting to Granville Island via metro (SkyTrain) is very convenient; either walk from Olympic Village Station or Main Street Station (Science World), or you can also board one of the little ferries that dock at many locations along downtown's false creek. The walk from Science World is particularly delightful along the Olympic Village and by many of the marinas that dot the shoreline.  Don't walk in the dark though - there are a few isolated areas.  Granville Island has so much to offer and discover.  The eateries are wonderful and there is a huge variety of arts, crafts and unique items.  The Granville Island Public Market is an amazing discovery for the senses and the tummy.  No matter how many times you frequent Granville Island there is always something new and special to discover.  There has been some criticism that the Island is getting a bit tired and dated, but modern upgrades would result in the loss of a unique experience that is hard to find in Vancouver's suburbs.
