    Might be too late to get this info to you, but I'd recommend Stanley Park (nice for a walk and view of the city), Grouse Mountain (for hiking and maybe mountain biking, weather-permitting), and an overnight or longer trip to Whistler prior to the Winter Olympics this February. Lots of places to shop; Granville Island offers a good mix of local crafts and cuisine. This article is a little summer-centric, but could toss up some decent outdoor ideas: http://away.com/features/family-vacations/canada/vancouver-390342.html

    Unfortunately, I was unable to find anything that fit your exact requirements. If you're willing to leave from a different city, you can plan something with Vacations By Rail, ExploreRockies.com or even Orbitz.

    18 years in Alberta, 19 years everywhere else. BC just lowered their blood alcohol levels from .08 to .05, so be sure to take a taxi wherever you go.

    There are a number of good hotels in Vancouver and the surrounding area, depending on what you want to see and your price range. If you want to be right downtown, I'd suggest staying at any hotel along Robson Street, Georgia Street, Burrard Street or Yaletown. You can walk anywhere downtown from those locations. English Bay has some great views so you might want to stay down there. Then there are the hotels along the marina close to Stanley Park. Stay away from any hotel on East Hastings Street - it's skid row.
