We are thinking to visit Canada for the first time later in July and stay for about 2 weeks and maybe 1 week Hawaii on the way home. We are travelling with 2 kids (2 and 5 yrs) and grandparents as well so 6 of us.
Will fly direct to Vancouver. Please help with suggestions of things to do, places to visit and places to stay. We would like to stay in Vancouver and possibly travel to the Rocky Mountains. Not sure how difficult that would be with 2 young kids in tow? What would be the best way to get there and how many days should we allow?
Have read about things we can do in Vancouver on TA website so should be able to happily spend 5 days there which leaves us a week to explore outside Vancouver. Please feel free to suggest any other areas worth going to. We like sightseeing, scenery, food, markets, beach.
Th travel agent suggested a cruise ship from Vancouver for a few days to see polar bears. Not sure if that is fun or something that would be good for kids so young?
Hoping someone who have been with young kids can give us some ideas of where they went in Canada. We are after a more relaxing holiday.
Should we hire a car? If not, where should we stay in Vancouver? We have a child with food allergies so will be looking to stay in an apartment with a kitchen rather than a hotel.
Thanks so much for any ideas and suggestions. We are just starting to plan this trip so any advice is appreciated.
