I was given a timeshare week, and wanted to see a different part of the country.

You had best study a map of the area so you'll better understand our comments. Note that our daylight hours are confined to a relatively narrow window, given our latitude, so to see natural beauty, you'll want an early start.

Consider the Vancouver, BC (not the island) tourism website. It's a great tourist city with loads of things to see and to do. As well, the Vancouver, BC TA Forum.

Obviously, Seattle area.

Whidbey Island.

Blaine area? In November, I really don't know. Is there a Blaine area tourism website?

You could also drive to Point Roberts, a piece of the US that, to access, you drive into and out of Canada.

You have a passport? Otherwise, forget Canada.

You are welcome.

I re-read my comments and had inadvertently ignored Victoria, on Vancouver Island. In a day trip, given the schedule on the website, below, you could see any one, perhaps two, of the major sights such as Butchart Gardens, the Royal Museum, explore the downtown, etc. An overnight is better, much less of a thrash.

You can get there from either Vancouver or Bellingham.

The only time we go to Blaine is if we are staying at the Semiahmoo Resort there.

Your only about 60 miles to the Mt. Baker Ski Area from Blaine so in November you might want to get up there for skiing or winter sports

The Blaine Chamber has a web site for visitors at http://www.blainechamber.com/

They have a list in detail of things to do in the area at http://www.blainechamber.com/activities.html

I hope we have good weather. We are planning to visit the San Juan Islands and Vancouver. Maybe our paths will cross.

Sounds fun. Haven't checked out the Island yet but will. We're also doing Vancouver and Victoria.
