This is one of the most scenic routes around. Make sure you'e a passenger, and also stop off at the viewpoints such as Shannon's Waterfall - you won't be disappointed.

Really breathtaking views. Stop at Shannon Falls, Brandywine Falls & any viewpoints you can! Because there are so many beautiful spots, it will probably take longer than they say to drive it!

If you're in Vancouver, you can't leave without experiencing the Sea to Sky Highway. Take a trip up to Whistler for the day and surround yourself with stunning mountains and some of the most beautiful scenery on earth. Stop by the Southside Diner in Whistler, or pull over and go to Shannon Falls. Or just roll your windows down (in the summer) and enjoy what's around you.

Car rental aren't ridiculously expensive or join a tour group.

We drove from Vancouver to Whistler. The views are of course breathtaking for the entire trip. Our weather was excellent; the road may be a "white knuckler" in rain or snow. Love it!

I did not get the feeling of sea to sky. I feel that this is more apt for highway 1 drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco (where u literally drove along sea and end up in the clouds).

There are many stops along Sea to Sky highway. We went to shannon falls and brandywine falls. Nice but not majestic. The Stawamus chief was ok, gigantic though. My favourite stop along the highway would be Porteau Cove. A quiet place to enjoy the fjord and scenary.

Whistler mountain is a must go. Must do attractions include the peak to peak tram ride.

Finish whistler mountain first if this is a day trip as whistler mountain closes early and you would want to have ample time at the top enjoying the scenary. The rest of the attractions acts as 'side dishes' to the main(whistler mountain) .

If you need pictures and a brief itinerary, feel free to visit my blog at keeewei.blogspot.com
