Day 1 was mostly a travel day. Storms in Chicago delayed our flight by 3 hours, so we didn't get into Vancouver until 8pm. We flew to Seattle to save airfare, and drove the 3 hours up to Canada.
Dinner was at Tacos Del Mar, because it was fast and close. It was nothing special.
We stayed at the Historic Downtown Ramada
. It had comfortable, clean rooms, and was a pleasant place to stay.
