On the fringe of greater Vancouver, the city of Richmond has a reputation as one of Canada's greatest melting pots.

There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Steveston Heritage Fishing Village, get your game on at Richmond Go Kart Track, examine the collection at Steveston Tram, and don't miss a visit to International Buddhist Society (Buddhist Temple).

Squamish ©
Easily accessible from both Whistler and Vancouver, little Squamish sits in the middle of one of Canada's scenic natural areas, affectionately called the "Sea to Sky Country." A vacation in Squamish provides the perfect opportunity to try a range of outdoor activities, so it's not surprising the town calls itself the "Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada." Visitors get their dose of adrenaline by rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, kayaking, golfing, whitewater rafting, or kite surfing in the area.
Change things up with these side-trips from Squamish: Whistler (Whistler Blackcomb, Whistler Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Shannon Falls Provincial Park, hike along Smoke Bluffs Park, and take a memorable drive along Sea to Sky Highway.

To find ratings, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, read Squamish online vacation planner.

You can drive from Richmond to Squamish in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In February, daytime highs in Squamish are °C, while nighttime lows are °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
