But we thoroughly enjoyed whitewater rafting on the Elaho and Squamish Rivers. We stayed in Vancouver and had a shuttle van take us up into the mountains. A couple trips were no more than renting a car for a few days.
And as for Vancouver, it's the only big city I've ever enjoyed. We stayed for a couple days before and after a trip to Alaska. Stanley Park is great, views everywhere, lots of different cultures and any kind of cuisine you could name. Also, we walked a lot in the city without problems and only got a cab a few times (to the airport and back and once when we got lost).
