This is a wonderful drive along the waterfront from West Vancouver to Horsehoe Bay, the homes and the scenery are out of this world. The road has lots of curves along it so best to take your time.

Digress on your way back from the ferry at Horseshoe Bay, from your trip to Whistler (the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics) or just take a quick trip across the magnificent Lions Gate Bridge spanning Vancouver's harbour from the downtown area to...
