We are going to use are frequent flyer miles to come to Vancouver. Next year our son will be 4. We actually have to book airline soon and would like to book rental house soon. Is it better to be in the city, on the coast, or on the island? We will have a rental car and plan to stay about 10 days. 7 days at a home rental and 3 or so days in another location. We could stay in a hotel/motel, but prefer 2 bedrooms so we don't have to sleep in the same room as someone who goes to bed at 8:00 pm.
We will be doing kid friendly activities and plan on visiting in the summer of 2011. The reason I chose Vancouver is it is about as far away from home we can get on our frequent flyer miles.
