You will have fun for sure.
We did a day trip to Victoria from Washington using a BC ferry from Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, Vancouver
. Vancouver Island/Victoria are neat. Enjoyed Bouchard Gardens & a neat museum in Victoria. The aquarium Vancouver was neat as well.
We have stayed at Birch Bay State Park
near Blaine, Washington twice over the years, used it as a base for going to Victoria & Victoria Island in Canada. Once on the way out of Canada, once before going into it. It is a 194-acre camping park with 8,255 feet of saltwater shoreline on Birch Bay and 14,923 feet of freshwater shoreline on Terrell Creek. The park is rich in archeological significance and offers panoramic views of the Cascade Mountains and Canadian Gulf Islands. Very nice park, neat views, neat seafood in the area. Not too far from Port Angles.
We enjoyed a short stay at Sequim Bay State Park
, a year-round, 92-acre marine camping park with 4,909 feet of saltwater coast in the Sequim "rainshadow," just inside Puget Sound on the Olympic Peninsula. The bay is calm, the air is dry and interpretive opportunities await visitors.
To get to Sequim from Birch Bay, we did take a ferry to Port Townsend. Can't remember route at this time. We also took a ferry from an island, which we drove to from Sequim, to Seattle. Bough some fresh pawns at a small country stop & shop and some smoked salmon from some guys selling it from their van along the way. Go some crab boil at a Super Market in Sequim. Oh, was it a feast! We went to the Aquarium in Seattle and rode a tram to close to the Space Needle.
Vancover BC, we really enjoyed visiting the Vancouver Aquarium
, but it was in '86. Should be ever better now.
We checked GasTown
out in '97, an ok place, lot of tourist shops, multi-national flavor, enjoyed the steam clock.
Also visted an Art Museum & a water front park, near the Aquarium, over looking the bay. We also did a drive up and along the sound to Squamish
which is a very lovely drive, along the way we visited <a href="http://images.google.com/images?q=shannon+falls+bc&rls=com.microsoft[img] target=[/img]Shannon Falls.</a>
In 1986, we stayed several days in a small private campground (long gone it seems, now part of a neat golf course) by the sound on the way to Squamish, just before getting to Shannon Falls. We also went to Vancouver Island/Victoria, both are neat. Enjoyed Bouchard Gardens & a neat museum in Victoria. I can not remember the name of it now. Attractions
We did a day trip, leaving the trailer at Birch Bay State Park in Washington and drove back into Canada to take a ferry. A neat trip.
On one trip we spent a few days at Waterton Nat'l Park in Canada before going down to Glacier, nice up there. Waterton
We went up to Thunder Bay from MN along the shore of Lake Superior. We only spent one night there, we stayed the night at a visitor center/welcome center outside of town. Off or on a major Hwy or interstate-like Hwy. Can't remember the number, etc. We were in a C-class MH. 2001.
I believe I found it: The City of Thunder Bay's official travel and visitor information center, located at the Terry Fox Scenic Lookout.
1000 Highway 11/17
Thunder Bay, ON P7A 0A1, Canada
It is on the Thunder Bay Expy, as you can see on this photo, it has large parking areas & I remember it was at a Scenic Lookout. Photo
Things to do.
We went to Fort William Historical Park
very neat place. We had stopped at Grand Portage National Monument
which was equally good if not better.
Our frist trip in a TT was to Canada: Bought a TT in '86 (a 20' 1983 Komfort Lite Bunkhouse with a head & shower, Wow!) which we took on a trip to Yellowstone, Glacier, Baniff in Canada to Victoria, BC then down the west coast to SoCal & back home towed with the 16 year old '70 Chevy farm truck without a butane tank & a low shell.
After several new to us tows through the years, we went to a '96 Coachman Catalina C-class 22' MH in '97. We went to Canada again for our first trip with it. This time to LA area then up the west coast to Victoria, BC area to Jasper, to Baniff, Watertown, Glacier, then back home via American Falls area of Idaho.
Neat things around Jasper and Baniff. If you go over toward Baniff from the West, I'd suggest going by Jasper first, very nice area. There is a hot spring resort in the area, very nice. The ride on the ice fields between Jasper & Baniff is neat. If from the East, Waterton then Baniff then Jasper then to Vancover, BC. Watertown is a neat place, as is Glacier in the US. There is a Glacier Nat'l Park in Canada as well in BC. Not been to it.
They have a neat visitor center between Jasper and Baniff, as I remember it, With a Tour on an Ice Bus like machine up on the glacier for a fee; but there was a short hike to the foot of the glacier near the hwy for free as well. The Bus was neat. Tours of Glacier
, we have gotten to do it twice. Very neat. Take a jacket, it can be cold. First time was in '86 and we drove up from Baniff to see it and do the tour. Second time was in '97, we stopped going from Jasper to Baniff in MH.
We did a car trip from Minot, ND to Brandon
, Manitoba in our dinghy (Geo Metro). Neat seeing the country side, we did not do any tours other than at a Wal-Mart. Ha! But did pass some nice camping areas. We did stop at the International Peace Garden on the U.S. and Canadian border. PeaceGarden.com
We did a second car trip from Minot to Moose Jaw
, Saskatchewan and took a tour of the cities Murals
and heard about the history of the town and it's connection to Al Copone
and others. We also went to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Museum
located in the RCMP Academy Campus. Very neat. We also went to an art museum and some other tourist things while in Regina.
We had stopped at Fort Macleod, Alberta
when on our way to Waterton. It was were the first RCMP made an appearence. It was in the general area of a neat site, Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump
When we were in Canada in '97, it was worth buying the Nat'l Parks Pass. We got ours at Jasper. http://www.pc.gc.ca/PROGS/NP-PN/RECH...ARCH_E.ASP?P=1
I have wanted to make a run to Winnipeg, Manitoba
but did not get to do so. There were many things one could see there it seems. http://www.winnipegkiosk.ca/
