What's a great destination for a family vacation in Canada?

Vancouver! There's so much to do and see, there really is something for everyone... I'd recommend Stanley Park & the Seawall, Vancouver Aquarium, Kids Market & Granville Island, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, Science World, Maplewood Farm, H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, the Grouse Mountain Skyride... to name a few :) And it's beautiful!

In what ways is your home town unique from other places you've lived or traveled?

It's got such variety in such a close proximity. City, countryside, mountains, beaches, woods... it's got everything!

What outdoor activity do you enjoy doing most with your kids?

Going for walks, noticing what they notice, seeing things I might never notice otherwise, and listening to their chatter and observations about their world. They love to collect rocks, leaves, flowers (weeds), shells and beach glass, and we usually come home with pockets full of "treasure".
