Gay Vancouver, Canada

Vancouver

It’s downright hot and sexy to drive a Lamborghini along the mountain-lined sea-to-sky highway, a cinematically gorgeous, coastal stretch connecting Vancouver, B.C. and the resort town of Whistler. Men and women of all ages do double takes as I whiz by. It’s an experience right out of a James Bond movie.

This drive is part of Scenic Rush, which offers drivers and passengers (romantic, platonic, or otherwise) an opportunity to get behind the wheel of four fast-and-furious vehicles to Whistler (7-8 hours/ $1,295 per driver) or the midway point of Squamish (3.5 hours/$495), plus a ride up the year-old Sea-to-Sky Gondola for eye-popping views of glaciers, greenery, and the Howe Sound, plus hiking trails, a Sky Pilot suspension bridge, and alfresco dining. By the time we return to our starting point I’ll also try my hand at a Ferrari F430 Spider, Audi R8, and a Porsche 911 Turbo.

In 2015, Canada celebrates ten years of marriage equality, and I’m in BC driving these insane vehicles, among other activities, in search of amazing things to see, eat, and do for couples getting married, on a honeymoon, or simply visiting this beauteous region. Yes, singles too.

It’s my third year in a row visiting Vancouver, whose tourism numbers set new records lately, while its population also booms thanks to extreme livability. To get started with arrangements, Tourism Vancouver (www.tourismvancouver.com) produces an “Out In Vancouver” newsletter and website with plenty of LGBT-specific information, resources, and links. GayVan.com is also LGBT-focused, while free weekly The Georgia Straight (www.straight.com), website Vancity-buzz.com, and foodie-centric Vancouverfoodster.com are well worth a browse for current what’s ons.
