The first Winter Olympics were held in Chamonix, France in 1924.  Winter sports, including various skiing events, have been competed in every Winter Olympics since then.  Vancouver and the nearby mountain resort area Whislter, in British Columbia Canada, are the proud hosts of the 2010 Winter Olympics. While the Winter Olympics are certainly the current event when thinking of Vancouver, the city is also considered one of the most desirable places to live in the world.  If you are planning a vacation to this beautiful city there are a number of must see attractions.  Stanley Park, being one of them, has a 1000 acres of west coast forest to explore with trails and a 6.5 mile seawall path for hiking and biking.  In addition Stanley park has 3 recreational beaches and its home to the Vancouver Aquarium.  Nearby Vancouver Island & Granville Island are very popular destinations and the Capilano Suspension Bridge provides incredible views of the Capilano River Canyon.  Finding an amazing holiday accommodation in the area should be a fun task as there are plenty of wonderful vacation rentals in Vancouver.

If you plan on attending the 2010 Winter Olypmpics and/or traveling to Vancouver for a family vacation with babies in tote, then pack lite because Wee Travel Baby Equipment Rentals has all the baby gear and supplies needed for your vacation.  Stroller rentals, car seats, full sized cribs, toys, infant bathtubs, and baby monitors are just a few examples of baby items for rent available through Wee Travel Baby Equipment RentalsWee Travel supplies baby equipment rentals to Toronto, Victoria, Vancouver, and their surrounding metro & resort areas.  They also own a delightful Vancouver vacation rental accommodation.

Wee Travel Baby Equipment Rentals (Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria) launched in 2005 as Canada’s first baby equipment rental company. Over the years, the company has sought out new products and innovative ways to make it safer, easier, and less stressful for families to fly with small children. The company recently opened The Modage, a beautiful furnished vacation rental in Kitsilano. After hearing customers remark over and over again how difficult it is to stay in hotels with small children, Wee Travel decided a vacation rental property was the solution. A fully equipped kitchen, fridge, stove, laundry facilities and baby gear such as a crib, highchair, carseat, stroller and toys were all key desires of their customers. The Modage was converted to a furnished vacation rental in August 2009. It’s stunning and welcomes kids and pets. The 1300 square foot townhouse is located in one of the most desirable areas of the city, and is within walking distance to Kits beach, Granville Island and a variety of trendy shopping areas and kids parks/water parks. It comes complete with a crib and highchair if required, and a full range of baby gear can be provided for a minimal cost. Now that’s what we call the “stress free” route to Vancouver.


Most of the 2010 Winter Olympic skiing events will be held at Whistler – Blackcomb to the north of Vancouver.  British Columbia’s Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort area is comprised of two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, providing over 7000 acres of premium mountain terrain including 12 alpine bowls, three glaciers and more than 200 marked trails.  There are 33 lifts throughout the area providing access to this winter sport paradise.  The Village of Whistler is lined with shops, boutiques, art galleries, and theaters. From fine dinning to souvenirs and gifts, you will find this beautiful mountain town has everything you need.
