Dear all travel experts and fans,
My husband and I have a short trip planned in early July, arriving mid-day, then 3 full days, followed by another half day before heading back home.
I only booked the flight and temporarily booked four nights at Hotel Blu which is expensive but more in line with our budget. It's been over 20 years since the last visit in Vancouver. I have seen lots of information and am overwhelmed as to where to start.
We won't have a car so that we stay within our budget.
My hope is that this short trip gives us some freedom away from obligation at home, offers some good shopping experience, provides some great sightseeing time outside of the City in addition to some good/not super expensive eats. I thought spending a day in Victoria, another day in Whistler, then a whole day in the City may be a bit too hectic. I am also curious about those Foodie Tours, and wonder if it is worthwhile or we should simply check out restaurants/food places on our own.
I am not completely settled with Hotel Blu and open to any suggestions for a couple without cars in Vancouver.
Look forward to your comment about how to plan our trip (this is our once a year, or every few years opportunity to have some fun just for ourselves).
