Headed to BC for a week on September 17...spending 4 days in Victoria for a conference and then taking the ferry over to Vancouver on the Wednesday morning (Sept. 21).
My question revolves around what to do during my time in Vancouver. I fly out on the red eye late Saturday night....so I am thinking to visit Stanley Park on the Wednesday, eat and visit Yaletown, drive up to Whistler on the Thursday, drive back to Vancouver Friday afternoon, catch Gastown and the Canucks exhibition game Friday night, Saturday, hoping to visit Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge and perhaps Granville Island before departing.
My main question is beside driving back and forth to Whistler, would a rental car be recommended or needed for those other excursions in the Vancouver area? As well, how bad is the area that the Delta Suites is located? I have heard that it is near a part of town that is not recommended for tourists. Any suggestions? Thanks again
