Clipper Vacations | Hoppy Hour Bike Tour in Victoria

Clipper Vacations | Hoppy Hour Bike Tour in Victoria

It’s a pretty simple equation: Clipper Vacations + a Hoppy Hour Bike Tour full of craft beer tasting = an awesome time in Victoria, British Columbia. There’s no easier way to get to Victoria than through Clipper Vacations. The Pacific Northwest vacation experts offer a number of transportation, tours and accommodation packages to customers across the world. The Victoria Clipper is an easy, quick and relaxing way to travel. The high-speed boat goes as fast as 30 knots, and takes less than three hours to get to Victoria from Seattle (or vice-versa). So long, #Seattle. Next stop: Victoria! #DiscoverClipper pic.twitter.com/KO6gw5ZWbz — Seattle Bloggers (@SeattleBlgrs) April 22, 2016 There are no assigned seats on the Victoria Clipper. The earlier you book your trip, the better boarding number you receive — which means the better seat you get on the boat. We lucked out and got a window seat both to and from Victoria. Once on board the Clipper, you’re allowed to walk around, check out the outdoor deck, or just kick back...

Banff | Canadian Rockies Getaway

Banff | Canadian Rockies Getaway

I’ve been drawn to Banff for years. After seeing pictures of snow-capped mountains, turquoise blue lakes, and incredible wildlife, I wanted to see it with my own eyes. That’s exactly why my dad and I recently booked a trip to the Canadian Rockies. I was surprised at how easy it was to get from Seattle to Banff. It takes about an hour and a half to fly to Calgary, and then it’s another hour and a half drive from Calgary to Banff. If you really feel like going for it, you can drive from Seattle to Banff, but it will take you about 11 hours. There are a million different things to see and do in Banff, including spectacular drives, incredible hikes, and other fun outdoor activities like rock climbing, kayaking, and white water rafting (to just name a few). My dad and I only had four days in Banff so we tried to squeeze in as much as we could. This is a day-by-day breakdown of what we did...

Four Days of Fun in Vancouver, British Columbia

Four Days of Fun in Vancouver, British Columbia

There are million different places you can go for a Seattle getaway, but one of the best options is waiting for you north of the border. Tove and I just wrapped up a four day, five night stay in Vancouver, British Columbia. We both grew up in the Northwest and traveled into Canada quite a bit when we were younger, but this was our first extended trip to Vancouver as adults. I want to mention a couple quick notes before I get started: Tove and I stayed at Coast Plaza Hotel and Suites in the West End (thanks to a screaming deal from Hotels.com). The hotel was located minutes away from Stanley Park and close to several bars, restaurants and beaches in the neighborhood. We mostly adventured around on foot, but since we drove from Seattle to Vancouver, we had access to my car for farther trips. Are you ready? Here’s the breakdown of our four days of fun in Vancouver! Day 1 We started our first full day...
