Travel from Miami to Vancouver


I am going to Miami in on November 1st flying from London and returning from boston on the 18th November.

I am thinking of going to visit a friend in Vancouver for about 6 days during my stay and want some advice on getting good cheap airfares I am currently being quoted $400-600 dollars?

Would it be possible to fly to seatle and then just cross the border there?

And where to stay and good restaurants and shopping and whats there to see?

Many thanks for your help

The prices as quoted are competitive.

You can certainly fly MIA-SEA for less but once you factor in the time spent in transfers and border crossing delays-both directions-there is little net benefit.

As strange as this sounds look at air-gorilla.com. I just booked Jacksonville Florida to San Francisco and my return is Vancouver to Jacksonville in May 08 for $460.00

Try flying into Seattle,it is usually cheaper then you take the 4-5-hour QuickShuttle bus coach. It stops at Blaine ,Washington unloads luggage on conveyor you depart bus walk inside customs bldg. then reclaim luggage 12 ft. then are waived to customs official who will ask different questions. just be polite and do not joke around,you may be asked to prove your intentions in Canada like tourist or business and for your intinerary.
