good food and a great view. Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia that has a British flavour. One thing you will notice is the abundance of fruit stands and u pick farms as well as farmer markets when you are traveling. As for places to stay I usually choose either a provincial or national park camp site. Some national parks may have full service but may not have the 50 amp that you may require. If possible plan portions of your travels on the secondary hiways. If you have any more questions let me know and I will do my best to find the answers
Hi and thanks for the good info. We will probably enter Canada from Washington state, since we live in Oregon. We've already been to Vancouver Island, quite a few years ago, and not in an RV. We loved it and went to museums, beautiful parks, and Buchart Gardens. We stayed in Victoria and also went to Vancouver and Gastown. I don't recall going to Granville Island, though - sounds nice (it's in Canada, correct - not on the WA side?).
I recall we also travelled north on Vancouver Island and did stop at a restaurant where you could eat outside in the covered patio with a great view of mountains and a huge gorge. You could watch bald eagles soar and there were lots of hummingbird feeders hanging in the patio. Could that be the same restaurant you're referring to?
Could we go to Granville for the day and see everything in our tow vehicle? Then we could avoid the expensive trip on the ferry in the RV.
Any good RV/travel books you can recommend for traveling in an RV across Canada or does Trailer Life Directory cover Canada as well as US?
Thanks for the good info.
