Staying in the sun

The climate in Greater Vancouver varies quite a bit. In Deep Cove, tucked into the valleys and fjords at the foot of the North Shore mountains -- where my wife grew up -- it rains a lot, especially in winter. To the south, on the flat alluvial lands and rocky outcrops of Delta, Tsawwassen, White Rock, and Crescent Beach, it's much sunnier and drier, on average. The City of Vancouver itself, and its nearby suburbs, are somewhere in the middle in rainfall.

If you're coming to stay in the Vancouver area, especially in the spring or summer, and don't mind a bit of a drive, you might want to try a nice hotel or bed and breakfast in White Rock or Tsawwassen (they're closer to the U.S. border and the Victoria ferry too).

Not much nightlife out there, though.
