We left Vancouver later in the day so the traffic was light going northbound. The scenery was perfect for the passengers with views of the water,mountains and the islands of... More

An incredible drive. Just came back from Vancouver Island, Banff, and Yoho, so wasn't expecting anything so "different" yet this drive was unique and I wish I had allocated more time for it.

This MIGHT be a great experience if you like your scenic vistas blocked by a whacking great concrete barrier. As the driver, it sucks - traffic in and out of Vancouver even on a weekend is horrendous; and the nutters on the road make this anything but relaxing. I have to wonder what this was like before what was presumably... More

We drove with friends up the Sea to Sky highway, from downtown Vancouver up to Whistler. Lots of great places to stop and visit along the way, We stopped at Horseshoe bay for a walk in the park, beautiful sea vistas, nice beaches and marina, so many places to stop and just ooh and ah at the magnificent views. Stopped... More

If you're planning to be in Vancouver and love to drive, this strip of road is where you want to drive on as the main artery to Whistler and some amazing hikes and natural attractions. The road has been updated since the 2010 Olympics and it's been so good to drive. It's awesome in perfect weather where you see the... More

This was a beautiful drive up to Squamish. One gets to see spectacular views. We stopped at Horseshoe bay for lunch. It was well worth it.

The first part of the drive from Vancouver northward is beautiful along the water. The it becomes rather routine as it winds its way toward Whistler, the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics. There are a few places to stop along the way such as a mine tour and a couple of waterfalls. Make sure to have enough gas until... More

This drive from Vancouver to Whistler and then on through the Pemberton Valley to Cache Creek and back to Vancouver is amazing. In the full day drive you can see so much of what BC has to offer. The ocean views, mountain passes, raging rivers, and incredible lanscapes give you many opportunities to stop and take it all in. Make... More
