Things to do in bc



I know we have some bc members and I'm sure some of you have traveled there before. Any suggestions? I'll be in whistler, victoria and vancouver. So anything to do with those three cities.

So far all I have is downhill biking on whistler.

thank you for any suggestions =D

No touristy shit.

Smoke is obviously one of the things that'll be taking up my time.

The rain forest thing is an amazing idea. It's something I'm always wanted to do. Thanks for the idea.

philthy328- tafino, also looks amazing. I think I'll be going there too. Do you know where and how I can see the red woods? what the best place?

Anything else?

Sorry you have to go to Vancouver island.


You want to go there to see the massive Douglas fir trees. Some of them are 250ft tall. Still, I really wish I went and saw them.


I think the ferry ride over is $60 if you have a car.

Thanx a lot for the link. I'm going there 100 percent.


I'm also considering rafting, because it looks really awesome.

Any nice bars/restaurants to check out will in Vancouver, victoria?

Sorry can't help you out with that. I was just passing through going to The Yukon.

What I wish I also did was drive the Sea to Sky highway.

I think it may go to Whistler.

Pagliaccis is very popular restaurant in victoria.. kinda italian pasta place.. right downtown... also vista 18 is high class shit. But you can see the entire city and the harbor, nice for a sunset and the foods pretty good. The sea to sky does go to whistler.. It's a pretty dope drive. Drive it during the day fo sho.

north shore riding is all you need to care about
I suggest you watch all the DVD's from The Collective before you head out there (The Collective, Roam, and Seasons)
