    Both cities should be a lot of fun. I haven't actually been to Montreal, but have visited Vancouver a couple of times. Lots to do there, including some outdoorsy stuff if you head over to Grouse Mountain or around Stanley Park. Granville Island has a nice little market and outdoor stalls and cafes for browsing. The Museum of Anthropology over on the University of British Columbia campus is quite impressive (though it's a bit of a hike to get there). The nightlife happens around the Gaslight District, though must say I felt a few of the areas nearby were a bit sketchy at night. Another Canadian option to consider would be Toronto, which has loads going on and an eclectic mix of cuisines and ethnic neighborhoods. There's some nice little galleries and bars over in the Distillery District, plus St. Lawrence and Kensington markets are both fun to browse. Enjoy!

    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

    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.
