Places to eat

by Ash59

One day to go and we are on our way to the Canadian Rockies!

Checking all those wonderful VT member sites that give so much information about this area (Ann75 & Waalewiener to name just a couple) just for those extra couple of tips pointing to places and restaurants that we would not think of going to BUT...

We are stopping in Kamloops for one night while travelling through on the Rocky Mountaineer but there is only one tipped restaurant for this place (thanks to Vic5). Has anyone got any favourites that they have been to here?

Many thanks for your replies

I should also ask what type of food you like. Kamloops is a bit of an anomoly. If you have the time you should go to It is about a 30 minute drive from town but, one of the people involved is a man named Gianni Picci who ran one of the best restaurants in Vancouver. He sometimes cooks and if you contact them they may know if he will that night.

Travel Tips for Kamloops

Tubing down the Thompson

by amambaw

One of the best activities to beat the heat of the Kamloops summer is tubing the Kamloops river. It is a little accessory intensive, but it will take you all day, and will probably be worth the $10-20 you spend on equipment. You will need: a tube or floatation device (inflatable mats are usually available at supermarkets for cheap in the summer), a floating waterbottle or other drink (I personally recommend coolers), a pair of shoes that can get wet and won't fall off, and lots of sunblock. If you are taking the bus, take the #3 Crosstown to the last stop in Westsyde (behind the shopping center). Head towards the river (about 3-4 blocks). If you have a ride, a good place to start is the end of Dairy Rd., about 15 mins past the Westsyde shopping center. Once you get to the river, blow up your raft, tie your drinks to your leg, slap on the sunscreen and hop in the river. You can float for as long as you like, there are many put out points along the way. This activity is great with a group, as you get to spend most of the time chatting and enjoying the scenery. You'll often see a few people on the shore, and if you wave, you'll often get a wave in return. A few safety points: Always do this activity with a few friends, and remember that despite its slow speed, the river has some very strong undercurrents. As long as you stay with your floating device, and are a decent swimmer, you should have no problems. If you have any doubts about the currents or where you are headed, go to shore. From the river, you can easily walk to the #3 stops.
