On the fringe of greater Vancouver, the city of Richmond has a reputation as one of Canada's greatest melting pots.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Richmond: Salt Spring Island (Ruckle Provincial Park & Salt Spring Island Cheese Company), White Rock Pier (in White Rock) and Surrey (Crescent Beach & Mind and Matter Gallery). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Steveston Heritage Fishing Village, identify plant and animal life at George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, see the interesting displays at Steveston Tram, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Squamish side-trips: Whistler (Whistler Blackcomb, Whistler Museum, & more). And it doesn't end there: take a memorable drive along Sea to Sky Highway, hike along Smoke Bluffs Park, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Shannon Falls Provincial Park.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Squamish trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

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 7°C, while nighttime lows are 0°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
