Olympics 2010

December 21st, 2009 by Mariah

Des plus brillants exploits…With glowing hearts… is the motto for the 2010 Winter Olympics, which will kick off with the lighting of the Olympic Cauldron on February 12, 2010 in Vancouver, BC. Considered one of the most beautiful and live-able cities in the world, Vancouver and its surrounding areas are popular visitor destinations that offer a variety of accommodation options. And with the 2010 Winter Games just a few months away, demand for rooms is extremely high. Finding accommodation close to the Games venues –in downtown Vancouver or the surrounding areas – may be challenging. If you do not mind a little travel during your vacation, Victoria, neighbor to Vancouver is absolutely beautiful. A great alternative to the crowded hotel atmosphere is to stay at a Bed and Breakfast.
