hi there, a small party of us is going up to vancouver for three days, two nights.

there are four adults, one grandma with a bad knee, one 7 yo and one 6 month infant. almost everyone is from korea (2 adults and the baby are living in the u.s.).

this is a food forum, so id like input on our meal options, but if you have comments on the rest of the itinerary, comments are definitely welcome (its my first time planning for ppl other than me and my husband, and im kind of stressed out.)

our base is in seattle.

i dont know how all our relations are with respect to food choices. i dont want to weird them out (had a bad experience taking them out to indian) but i want to enjoy my meals too. bil is kind of on the cheap side, so ive also tried to choose more budget minded options. for a real foodie trip, ill have to come back without relations.

i keep wondering if ive overbooked us. will we be exhausted with this itinerary? ive also tried to stay kid focused for the 7 yo.

anyway, here is what ive come up with so far.


breakfast somewhere in seattle (probably at bils home)

drive up to vancouver from seattle

lunch: crystal mall or
lunch: japadog

afternoon in stanley park OR
if its raining the aquarium, museum of anthropology

dinner at gyoza king, santouka, kingyo or shanghai river

breakfast: dimsum or something else in vancouver?

take ferry to victoria

lunch: red fish, blue fish

butchart garden
if its raining royal bc museum and butterfly garden

tea at white heather

if we're not pooped out, beacon drive in for soft i.c.
