Driving to Vancouver

Driving to Vancouver can be a lot of fun and a fun adventure of itself. Many people drive here from Calgary, from Seattle and from Vancouver to Banff and back again for a honeymoon or for a wedding and other reasons.

Driving to Vancouver

During the summer months the weather and roads are busy with families towing trailers to their annual camping trips or to Calgary (975Km or 606 miles) to the east.

From the south people come from Seattle, (176 kilometers or 110 miles) from Portland (525km or 326 miles) and as far away as from San Francisco (1273 km or 791 miles) and all over the rest of the US and Canada to spend a Vancouver vacation.

Seeing all the sights to see, like Stanley Park and English Bay and lots of other things to do and daytrips out of the city like a nice drive along the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler, stopping to take pictures along the drive and making a stop in Brackendale where they have the annual eagle count and Britannia Mines where there’s a mining museum.

Driving to Vancouver from Calgary

Driving from Calgary to Vancouver takes about 13 hours to do and the distance to Vancouver is 975Km (606 miles).

Driving from Seattle to Vancouver

Driving from Vancouver to Seattle takes about 2.5 to3 hours is about 176 kilometers or (110 miles) to the downtown Vancouver hotels but this may take a little long if driving during our Vancouver winter. We don’t really get that much snow and it only stays a day or so in the city. So if you are planning a trip to see the Vancouver 2010 events, make sure you give yourself extra time!

Driving to Vancouver from Banff

Driving from Vancouver to Banff is 847 Km (526miles) through the Rocky Mountains. In the spring and summer, this is a drive you will not only enjoy taking but you’ll see lots of wildlife and natural alpine beauty that you’ll remember it for the rest of your life!

Just remember to have a Vancouver road map with you and also be very aware of the Vancouver parking rules because the city parking enforcement officers don’t have much of a sense of humour and are very quick to write tickets!
