Weekend Trips from Vancouver

With over 2 million people in Metro Vancouver,… and a melting pot of cultures, Vancouver is an amazing place to visit and to live. However, as the highest cost of living in Canada, it is also an expensive place to live. With these weekend trips from Vancouver, we hope to inspire families, solo travelers and couples to get out and explore Beautiful British Columbia and Washington State on the weekend! No extra holidays required! Pack up the car, pack up the kids (and perhaps the dog) and get out and explore. These places can easily be explored in a weekend, but if you have a week off, USE IT! Each week we will be adding a destination guide to the places listed below! Check back and

1. Victoria

As the capital city of British Columbia, Victoria has so much to offer for families! it is not just a tourist destination! Book a hotel for the weekend and visit the many beaches, parks and outdoor activities to explore! Whether it is feeding seals on fisherman’s wharf, … geocaching, taking a horse drawn carriage around downtown,… whale watching, or spending an afternoon at the Royal BC Museum, or Butterfly World or the Bug Zoo, there are plenty of activities to keep kids of all ages (and adults too) entertained! Walk the Galloping Goose Trail, or conquer Mount Finlayson if you are a hiking enthusiast (if you have more than a weekend, consider the… Juan de Fuca Marine Trail). And if the weather does not cooperate, do not despair, we have a great list of what to do in the rain with kids… here.

Summer is the busiest time of year in Victoria, but it can be enjoyed any time of year. If you are traveling on a long weekend or in the busy season with kids, consider making a reservation on… BC Ferries. For the small extra fee, it is worth it, in my opinion. When you only have a weekend to visit, you do NOT want to be sitting at the ferry terminal for hours!
