My girlfriend and I are going to be flying into Vancouver (Canada) in mid January and have allowed about 1 week to check out the surrounding areas before we head to Whistler for a week of snowboarding & skiing. We would love to hire a car and check out the area provided there's not too much driving in icy/hazardous conditions.
We're both Aussies who love sport, music and sightseeing. We're hoping to keep to a reasonable budget, but want to take in as much as possible.. We'd also be keen to head down to Seattle as well.
Can anyone make any recommendations on what to see, where to go and where to stay?
Thanks in advance for your help!
