Stay a Day (or Two) Vacations

Everyone needs a break. Sometimes it’s just a couple of days at home on the couch, but there are times when a change of scenery can refresh your mind and body. A vacation doesn’t have to take all of your paid time off, instead, you can refresh, rest, and relax for just a couple of days. Take a break from your routine and spoil yourself with leisurely Victoria to Vancouver cruises followed by a stay in one of Vancouver’s exciting neighborhoods.

Where to Stay?

Vancouver has amazing neighborhoods with something for everybody. Here are just a few of the appealing neighborhoods on offer.

  • Downtown: Downtown’s Granville Street is the equivalent of Broadway in Vancouver. Stanley Park is a must for hiking and biking trails, as well as for the Vancouver Aquarium. After that, get ready to shop Robson Street and Granville Street and exceed your returning baggage allowance.
  • Gastown: With a Steampunk vibe thanks to the steam clock or Old-World charm thanks to the Victorian architecture, Gastown appeals with independent boutiques, restaurants, and shopping.
  • Kitsilano: This family-friendly destination hosts events such as Vancouver international children’s Festival – really plan in advance for that one – and Bard of the Beach for fans of Shakespeare. The area is a hipster’s delight, full of unique boutiques and restaurants.

Where to Sleep?

Choosing your accommodation depends on what you’re looking for when you decide that you need some sack time. Accommodations range from funky and international hostels with dormitories and bunk beds, to Air BnB and other self-catering options, to 4-star hotels with amenities such as concierge, day spas, and beds that are like sleeping on clouds.

Plan and Book in Advance

Vancouver is one of Canada’s most popular destinations for business and tourism. It pays to book in advance for your accommodations and your transportation. Victoria to Vancouver cruises take more time than going to the airport but are a lot less hassle. You’ll be able to rest and relax on the way, enjoy a good meal, and arrive in the vacation state of mind instead of the “I am never flying again” state of mind. Book your daycations today and enjoy some needed downtime.
