Fireworks on Canada Day

by MadhavRekha

We are boarding a cruise from Vancouver on July 2, and will be staying at a Vancouver hotel on the 1st. We subsequently discovered that July 1 is the Canada Day, and there will be parades and fireworks in the city. If we stay in a hotel close to the airport, and want to go out to see the fireworks and other festivities, would it be possible to take a taxi? Would the streets be blocked? Or is it better to pay twice the price and stay in a hotel in the downtown? Which would be a good place to watch the fireworks from?

Instead of taking a taxi, I would recommend traveling downtown by skytrain (http://www.translink.ca/). If you're staying near the airport it should be easy to get to one of the Canada Line stations, which will take you downtown to Waterfront Station. From there it's only a short walk to Canada Place and the Coal Harbour boardwalk, from where you can see the fireworks. The skytrain runs until 1:00 am, so getting back to your hotel shouldn't be a problem either. Hope this helps!

Never heard of a "Canada Day Parade" either. Fireworks over the water at Canada Place as already mentioned is the main show.

I think the parade is something fairly new, it's mentionned as one of the activities on the Canada Place Website (http://www.canadaday.canadaplace.ca). I've never been though, so I've no idea what it's like.

There will be fireworks and all kinds of goings on at Canada Place on the waterfront. If you are staying downtown, you will be in walking distance of all events. No need to worry about road closures etc.

Stay downtown or cab back. The Canada Line will be so busy after the fireworks, it may take 2-3hrs to get back.

Re: Fireworks on Canada Day

If you stay in Richmond near the airport a cab will run you around $30.00 to $35.00 so factor that into your hotel expense. You might look at the following hotels downtown. Days Inn on Pender St, close to everything, very nice. Ramada on Pender, Ramada on Granville, Best Western on Drake and Granville, Century Plaza on Burrard, Sandman Inn on Georgia.

Travel Tips for Vancouver

Multiple Skiing/Snowboard options

by dimmuborgir

Blackcomb/Whistler are usually packed with people and very expensive. Instead, drive to Mount Baker in Washington, USA in just 1-1/2hrs to avoid crowds and high fees. You can get a cabin @ Mt. Baker that sleeps 4 for only $139/night. Food and beer is also incredibly cheap in Washington. In Whistler $139/night won't get you anything. Or there's other options like Big White ski in /ski out resort. Go to www.mtbaker.us or www.goski.ca

Wear a helmet so you don't end up with a concussion after bailing into a full lip stand into hard packed snow.

Stanley Park

by dragontml

A walker's paradise right in the heart of the city-400 hectares (1000 acres) of woodlands, gardens, flowers, trails, lakes, benches and wildlife. It's one of the largest urban parks in North America. Circumnavigate the park via the seawall (a brisk 2-hour walk) or take the road less travelled around Lost Lagoon or Beaver Lake to view the resident geese and racoons. Stanley Park is home to the Vancouver Aquarium as well as a children's farmyard, tennis courts, pitch and putt golf course which makes it a great family outing.

Stanley Park

by btex

visit Stanley Park. If I lived in Vancouver, I would probably go to Stanley Park all the time. I would move to the park...I'd be known as the wild man that lives in Stanley Park :)
I'm exaggerating. S.P. has trails for hiking, lakes, an aquarium, and so on.... And, people walk, jog, bike, rollerblade on the seawall which surrounds the park. And, don't forget the beaches. The picture is of me standing inside of Hollow Tree in S.P. You can either drive or hike to the tree.

Take in a sunset

by camiellesbl

If I could I would spend a trip in Vancouver just testing out different sunset locations. I was blessed with a friend whose family is wealthy enough to own a home atop one of the most spectacular views of all Vancouver. (with the exception of the architecture downtown) I took a chance to share this view with you. Look hard at one of the photos, you can see his mother's rose garden. Just beautiful!!!

spend a day in Stanley Park. ...

by Depunk

spend a day in Stanley Park. You can bike, rollerblade, jog along the sea wall. There are driveways for cars as well, but unless you absolutely can not be part with your four-wheel friend, leave it behind. Vancouver is famous not only for its scenary. Everywhere you go, people are very nice and friendly. Motorists will patiently wait behind
you at intersections(at least in my experience)
while you day dream and forget to notice the light has just turned green.
