I went to Squamish, BC before on a vacation with my family and I loved it so much I would love to live there. I've always wanted to live in a small town and I think the mountains are just breath-taking that you have to visit!
Quarry Rock Lookout in Deep Cove - North Vancouver, BC. A popular hike in in the lower mainland that take about hr. From here, you can see SFU university and look back at the city of Vancouver directly south of here.
If you're looking to travel this winter break, Vancouver is a great destination. Surrounded by mountains and beaches, Vancouver is both an urban and a natural playground that your whole family will love!
