Planning a Seattle/Vancouver trip in early October. Wanted to get a few opinions/suggestions. We are planning to rent a car from Seattle and can drive up. But how good is the Vancouver public transport? I've read that Vancouver has a decent public transport system, so am thinking about using that and avoid parking/car rental needs (assuming Parking can be problematic?). Assuming I don't need the car to see major sites, I am also thinking taking the BoltBus to/from Vancouver. I haven't been back in Vancouver for over 20+ years, so we may end up doing all the touristy stuff.
1. Do you think I should rent the car and use in Vancouver?
2. Am I going to miss much on the drive to/from Vancouver (i.e., scenic drive)?
3. How bad is parking in Vancouver?
