Hello everybody, looking outside we feel confident that it is going to be a very pleasant Spring, and all in time for us to celebrate the Easter Season.
So Happy Easter to you all, we will like to put you in the right direction of events and places of worship if you are looking for somewhere to celebrate this very famous occasion on the Christian Calender. If you are just celebrating as you have some days off, we are sure we can find something for all the family to enjoy.
At the Sunset Inn, this time of year marks a major transition from Winter Season to Summer season, and it is now just a matter of weeks before the Cruise Ships start to move in and welcome the tourists from all over the globe, many of whom are getting ready for the big cruise north to Alaska. This means that the hotel and Vancouver will be getting very very busy and the city now has its lively summer hat on, we feel it is is going to be yet another busy and fun packed summer, so please keep up to date with the blog as we will keep you up to date on all that will be going on.
So as this is Easter Week, Vancouver has various events happening all around the city, here are some of the highlights that we feel you will enjoy!
