As Canada celebrates their 150th anniversary, promoted by the Canadian government as Canada 150, we take a look back at some of our memorable moments from cruises and tours to Canada.
This would be an excellent time for you to visit Canada, as there will be year long celebrations throughout the land
Vancouver, British Columbia
Vancouver is a coastal seaport city in Canada, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia. British Columbia (BC) is the westernmost province of Canada, with a population of more than four million people located between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. Once again we are highlighting one of the attractions in BC that is worth visiting.
We've visited Vancouver on many occasions, usually in conjunction with a cruise. Alaska cruises often start or end there. We suggest adding some extra time to your vacation, so that you can take full advantage of everything that Vancouver and surrounding area has to offer.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side
The 450 ft (137m) long, 230 ft (70m) high Capilano Suspension Bridge has thrilled visitors since 1889. While the wobbly bridge and stunning location is a Vancouver landmark, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park offers an all-encompassing BC experience. One of the highlights for me was Treetops Adventure which takes guests 100 feet into the mid-story of a coastal rain-forest on seven suspension bridges attached to old-growth trees. It is accessible to guests of all ages. Nature guides provide hourly tours, explaining the importance of a West Coast temperate rain-forest to the ecosystem. If you are afraid of height, this might not be the attraction for you.
Capilano Suspension Bridge is an attraction that was named the 7th best attraction in Canada by USA Today. 10Best travel guide ranked the top 20 nominees, and the public decided the final 10. View the entire list here: the top ten attractions in Canada.
