Grab some snacks, drinks and good music and take a drive. Don't forget your camera! There are lots of places to stop and enjoy the views as well as take a few snap shots. We only wish we had more time to drive further along this road.

Since the Olympics this road has been greatly improved, so if you gorgeous BC scenery this is the drive to take. Great views of water, mountains, rivers, and vistas at the pull outs. Lovely way to see more of beautiful BC!

This is an amazing experience once you get out of West Vancouver! If you are not pressed for time, first spend some time at the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal area, with great ice cream and natural vistas to enjoy. Once back on the road, be sure to observe the 60 KM speed limit through Lions Bay. Easy enough to forget,... More

The Vancouver to Whistler highway has seen huge improvements in the last 5 years but it's still an alpine highway in the winter and even in summer some curves require care and adherence to speed limits and warnings. Take time to stop and view the scenery. It is truly breathtaking.

A good road up the side of the estuary and then the river as it winds up from the sea to Whistler. Fantastic views all the way and some interesting viewpoints at the waterfalls although the signage for some of these needs to be improved. Make sure you take plenty of time to stop off at places like Shannon falls... More

One of the worlds great highways with views both north and southbound (although I prefer southbound). Drive with caution especially in tricky weather but stop for great photo opportunities at designated view points.

What an incredible drive. The views are so amazing, and you'll want to stop to take photos along the way. Better to be the passenger so you can take it all in. Also be prepared that people drive fast along this road. There are a lot of commuters who drive this road a couple times a day and know it... More
