We enjoyed a bit of a staycation recently, taking in many of the local attractions we usually balk at paying highway robbery prices for (or perhaps the prices are reasonable and we're just cheap?)
One of the first on our list was the Vancouver Aquarium. It is a fabulous spot for young kids. If you're not a member, get there right at opening to avoid the massive line ups (we were literally the first in line the day we went!) Cheap though I may be, even I thought we got our money's worth! In fact, we all enjoyed it so much, we bought an annual membership so we can go anytime we want! Sadly, our camera battery was near death so I didn't get to take many photos.
