My wife and I will be driving from Ottawa to Vancouver this summer, then heading to Tofino. The goal of the trip is the journey...to see Canada. We don't plan on rushing the drive to allow for some exploring, but won't meander forever either. We'd like a week or so in BC, leaving about 7-8 days for the drive. Assuming that makes sense.
We're looking for tips/suggestions from folks who have made the Trans-Canada drive. Tips on must-see stops along the way, great scenic detours, route info, places to stay...anything that is helpful.
