I've been reading the forums and all the great information has made me rethink our trip. Originally we were going to fly into Seattle, then go to Vancouver, Victoria and back to Seattle. But since we will only be there July 14 - July 20th, I need to rethink the trip and would love some help. It will be 4 of us - my husband and I and two boys - 20 and 18. The two choices I have come up with are:
Flying to Seattle, staying there for 3 or 4 nights and then renting a car and going to San Juan islands for a couple nights.
Or fly directly to Vancouver, stay there 3 or 4 nights, rent a car and go to Whistler for a couple nights.
We all love museums, sight-seeing, going to great restaurants and hiking. The 18 year old would love to go fishing and my husband and both boys want to go ziplining in Whistler. I need to make the decision and get everything booked - just overwhelmed and keep dragging my feet!! Would prefer suite hotels where the boys will each have their own beds and we'll have a separate space instead of having to rent two rooms. Thanks in advance for any input and I'm posting this on the Vancouver forum too.
