Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar
Popular travel writer and video guide host Laura McKenzie ventures to western Canada on this travel video, part of the Laura McKenzie's Travel Tips series. McKenzie takes the viewer to the western Canadian cities of Vancouver, Banff, and Calgary, visiting sights such as Butchart Gardens and Grouse Mountain. Like many of her travel works, this video uses McKenzie's practical, efficient way of traveling that benefits any traveler who is looking for more information than just where to eat and what sights to see. In addition to sightseeing and dining suggestions, McKenzie offers her input on some inexpensive hotels, how to pack for the weather and conditions, and what type of nightlife is offered and where to find it. Other topics include where to shop for souvenirs, the best places and the best resorts for skiing, and generally what to expect from a trip to the western part of Canada.
