We are planning on coming for 2 weeks in May for our honeymoon and I've got a couple of questions about our trip.
Firstly when is best in May? I know there is a holiday weekend, which seems to be when a lot of the tourist attractions open. Any idea of the dates of this in 2012? (We don't want to miss the lumberjack show at Grouse Mountain!)
Is May a good time to see Whales & Bears?
Will there still be enough snow at Whistler for snowboarding? And if not is there enough to do there for a couple of days? Or should we make it a day trip?
One of the reasons I wanted to come to Vancouver was that I saw a picture of long beach, Tofino. However it seems to be a long way to go and pretty expensive there. Is there anywhere closer to Vancouver that you could reccomend that is still as pretty and has a feeling of remoteness but not quite as far and expensive?
Any help you could give us would be much appreciated!
