The United States of America
The United States shares the worlds longest undefended border with Canada. Of course a good portion of that border is with the Province of British Columbia with Washington State being the closest to Vancouver. Washington is a very popular destination for ordinary Vancouver residents. Bellingham is in particular a favourite stopping point. Every winter my folks like to pack up their RV ( that's recreational vehicle but maybe you call that a Carvan where you live ) and head down to the United States for an extended vacation. They are usually there for at least a couple of months soaking up the sun in some of the lower states and generally enjoying American hospitality.
Some of their favourite stops can be found on this page. For instance they always go to Arizona with Phoenix being a regular destination for them. Lake Havasu is another and they have some great stories and pictures of the Grand Canyon. California is alway on the itinerary for them. We have friends in Florida. Jacksonville to be exact. There is a guide to Florida vacations here and you might also want to check out Destin. When my folks lived back east in Ontario they travelled down the eastern seaboard to Florida by car. My mom hates flying so that's why they've only been to Hawaii once. Maui is where they went I think. My Dad's company presented him with an award and part of that award included a trip to Maui. But they haven't been there since because of my mom's dislike of flying and this explains why they have driven so much in places like New York state, Virginia and both North and South Carolina. The eastern part of the United States of America is not that easy to get to from Vancouver by car. That is unless you have lots of time and the patience for driving long distances. But don't let that deter you. There are direct flights from Vancouver to many US cities. If you are thinking about exploring the United States I'm pretty sure you can find some interesting places right here!
