    If plans change and you're there a month earlier, I'll buy you a crab in curry sauce.

    Thanks Bob, but it's a short trip, in and out over 2 days, so no dive into WA this time.

    I haven't actually done this, but methinks it's a waste of time and money, especially with teenagers in tow.

    Harbour Air floatplane tour would be fun in either Vic or Van.

    I was in Vancouver last year for a work trip. A couple of highlights were Stanley Park if the weather is decent (old growth forests! in a city park!). We had great sushi at Miku, and a great dinner overall at the Royal Dinette. Great oysters at the Fanny Bay Oyster Bar (and generally, you're close to the land of great oysters).

    Back in the day, one of the highlights of trips to Van for me and crew of small town hicks were visits to the Planetarium to enjoy the laser light show. Went specifically for the Pink Floyd, Dark Side Of The Moon offering and it was an amazing music/laser light/digital effects immersive experience. Regular scheduled showings at the HR McMillan Space Center ended a few years back but looks like the BCIT Planetarium still presents events on occasion...can't comment on the quality of that experience but comments indicate that it seems up to snuff. Might get lucky if dates line up.

    In Victoria I'd do a half-day kayak tour then have lunch at Spinnaker's brewpub.
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    VIctoria is mostly awful. Seems to exist solely by selling shonky British themed souvenirs to passengers of cruise ships who flush their brown water tanks into the Salish Sea.

    In the basement of the Empress Hotel in Victoria is a large miniature logging town/railroad layout. My son was transfixed by it at age 5.

    I always liked Victoria for it's vibe, cheap, good restaurants and acres of public water access.

    I have to say that of all the pleasant times I've ever had, sitting on the deck of the ferry from Annacortes to Sydney on a sunny August afternoon with a Big Gulp sized Redhook ESB ranks right up there. My only worry in the world was whether or not I was going to be sober enough to get through customs on my motorcycle.

    well exactly, mom ate it gave it the mom seal of approval and died pretty quick after that but she was 90 eh,

    she was a fairly nasty old woman but her Malay/Singapore/ Indian/ Thai food was simply fucking amazing

    In Vancouver, the Capilano suspension bridge and the Grouse Mt sky ride are worth doing. There also used to be a hydrofoil ferry that was fun, but couldnít find mention of that, so maybe that shut down. Thereís also a huge ice skating and curling complex in Burnaby. I imagine thatís still there.

    Actually, there is so much great food in Vancouver and Victoria it is crazy. We go up every summer to see family. Mostly we walk about and take in the sights, shop and eat. I love both towns and could easily live in either. When in Vancouver, we always stay at the Wedgewood Hotel, as there is so much around it to see and do and hanging out in the bar, drinking and talking is a great way to pass time, as the world walks by you.
    In Victoria we always stay at the Magnolia, beautiful suites and again, in the center of everything we want to walk to. With kids in tow I would have done it different than you and gone up to Uculet and Tofino. Incredible natural beauty, beaches, kayaking, camping, bike riding, etc that would have been a winner for most kids. You could go up there from Victoria. We stayed in these awesome tree-houses in Uculet. Spendy, but so cool. Have a great time.
