Overview

Completely updated, this new edition of Frommer's British Columbia will show you the best of Vancouver, the hottest destination in North America, where you can enjoy cutting-edge Asian-fusion cuisine and experience firsthand its vibrant arts and nightlife scene.

Our authors have traveled every inch of this vast region, and they've chosen the best places to stay: wilderness lodges, guest ranches, elegant B&Bs, mom-and-pop motels, secluded campgrounds, and luxury resorts. With Frommer's in hand, it's a snap to design the Canadian adventure that's right for you.
