Great White Bites

Vancouver – I’m often asked what my favorite NHL road city is. There are plenty of good ones but Vancouver has to be at the top of my list.

The natural beauty and cultural diversity makes it special, think San Francisco with snow capped mountains.

For a Bay Area Sharks fan it’s the perfect roadie location. The flight is about 2 hours. You can drive it in a little over a day. Once you get here the options are endless.

I’m a jogger so a run around world famous Stanley Park is a must for me, but its also perfect for cycling or just walking. There are many unique neighborhoods like Kitsilano, Gastown or Robson Street.

The food and drink destinations are outstanding. My favorites include Joe Forte’s and Cardero’s. Both feature fresh British Columbia salmon and mussels.

And finally there’s the passion for hockey. Vancouverite’s eat, breathe and sleep Canucks hockey.

If a hockey road trip is in your future, try Vancouver. Rain or shine it’s my top stop in the league.
