What’s there to say about Banff National Park that hasn’t been said before? The ultimate natural and remarkable environmental playground. The ideal sightseeing location for all nature enthusiasts. Banff offers unspoiled scenery from the Rocky Mountains and its foothills surrounding this wonder of Canada. Visit the town of Banff or ski and snowboard till your heart’s content at one of Banff’s many ski resorts. Take a gondola up the Sulfur Mountain to view the goats going on with their everyday life while taking in fresh Alberta air.
Still at Walt Disney...
Still at Walt Disney World..... ORLANDO, FLORIDA, U.S.A.
Pleasure Island is another must-visit place for some interesting nightlife entertainment. If you're below the drinking age here in the USA, the security guys will slap a wrist band on you. My poor friend (who's only just slightly over 5ft 1 inch tall and every inch a career woman) had a band slapped on her wrist. Sigh. They wanted to see our IDs. But who actually brings along a passport to a theme park anyway? No IDs? No problem.... the wristband stays, Missy! So, no alcoholic drinks that night either. :-(( What an adventure.
Photo Below: That's me at MAGIC KINGDOM... twice the size of Disneyland in Anaheim! A real playground for both kids and ADULTS! :-))
Visit Stanley Park in...
Visit Stanley Park in Vancouver. This park is perfect for anyone. Two sets of paved trails - one for walkers and jogger, the other for bicyclist and rollarbladers. Beautiful views of the bay from any trail. There's also a water-park for the kids in the summertime, along with a playground. It's a whole day worth of free entertainment-exercise-and sight seeing.
Centennial Beach in...
Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen, British Columbia is one of the local's best kept secrets in my opinion! When people visit Vancouver, they rarely explore outside of the city. Tsawwassen isn't usually on their list of places to see unless they're planning to visit the ferry terminal. But if they're looking for a great beach within an hours drive from Vancouver? I'd point them to Centennial Beach.
Centennial Beach is located on Boundary Bay, on the east side of Tsawwassen. It's here where you'll find some of the cleanests and warmest waters for swimming. The water from this bay comes from the ocean, and filters out every time the tide goes down.
When the tide goes down (like it is in the photo), you can walk out on the sand for miles, quite literally! Here between the sandbars and the tidal pools you'll find all sorts of jellyfish, snails, fish (like flounders), sanddollars, crab, scallops, clams and more! Centennial Beach has free parking, and is open from dawn to dusk. There's a playground for the kids, baseball diamonds, beach volleyball, a small restaurant, a bird sanctuary, walking trails, BBQ pits, a little lagoon, bathrooms and changing areas, and picnic tables. It's a very popular destination for local residents in the summer.

Photo: Taken during the first week of July 2001 by my dad. My sister's on the left, and I'm on the right holding a sanddollar in my hand. You can see the 'shore' to the far left, and the Vancouver north shore mountains in the far distance.
In a dilema?
I have a problem....
My partner and I want to travel to America soon.
She wants to go to New York - Rhode Island etc.. and I want to go to Las Vegas.
We have limited time so we cant do both.
What do you think??
RE: In a dilema?
I think you are right. Vegas is the place to go. It is nonstop excitement, fun, entertainment. She would probably love it if the two of you went there.
If you do find yourself compromising you might go to New York for her and see if Atlantic City will satisfy you. You might have to save Rhode Island for another trip.....
RE: In a dilema?
You could flip a coin. Seriously, if you're flying from the Far East.. getting to LV seems a bit shorter and easier than going all the way to the East Coast. The weather isn't very good in the East until late April or May most years.. LV will be warm and sunny!
RE: RE: In a dilema?
I'm going to take the opposite route and vote for the east. Vegas isn't that great of an area for a visit to the states. You can gamble elsewhere, you can see shows elsewhere, etc.. Why not go and see some of the "real" U.S. versus americas playground?
RE: RE: In a dilema?
The East Coast or Las Vegas? It's a no brainer. Las Vegas is not a slice of America especially when the casinos have tried badly to immitate Paris, Lake Bellagio, Venice, and whatever else.
If you are going to the States, go to see the states, a plural noun.
