Countdown to the 2010 Winter Games
Yes, it is the height of summer and most of British Colombia is in the middle of a heat wave and heading for the beach to dip their toes in the cool ocean. However, we are now less than 6 months away from the 2010 Winter Games. It is time to make travel plans to share in the Olympic experience.
One way to make your Olympic experience more affordable is to explore smaller accommodations outside the city. British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast is a short ferry cruise from West Vancouver’s Horseshoe Bay Terminal. You haven’t really experienced BC until you have travelled by ferry. BC Ferries operates regularly scheduled sailings carrying passenger vehicles and walk-on passengers and is making an 11pm sailing available each evening during the 2010 Winter Games. The coastal communities of Lund, Powell River, Pender Harbour, Halfmoon Bay, Sechelt, Roberts Creek and Gibsons invite you to come and explore more of BC’s spectacular coastline.
The Sunshine Coast Bed & Breakfast, Cottage Owners Association offers unique affordable accommodations for every family or individual. Choose from a vacation home on the waterfront, a comfortable B&B with romantic getaway package, or a cozy family cottage in the forest. Our variety of Sunshine Coast accommodations are sure to please. Member accommodations are inspected and must comply with stringent health and safety standards assuring our guests of superb accommodations at affordable prices. Something for Everyone!
On your day off from the sporting events, take in a day of cross country skiing or try out the snowshoes at Dakota Ridge. Experience your own athletic capabilities in a stunning quiet setting. Stroll through artisan galleries featuring glass, pottery, painting, and so much more. See why the Sunshine Coast has the highest artists per capita and just how talented they are. Dine in a quaint seaside restaurant with organic greens and fresh local seafood.
