With its solid reputation, students at the Universal Learning Institute come from all over the country. If you’re bringing the kids to see if this is the right school for you, our guide can help you have a great time while checking us out. ULI is located in Richmond by the Vancouver airport, but you’ll probably want to spend some time exploring Vancouver as well. After all, if you’re going to make this area your home, you’ll want to be sure that you like it.
Where to Stay
When it comes to convenience, you can’t go wrong with the Fairmont Vancouver Airport hotel. This hotel is located in the terminal of the airport, so it’s perfect for those who have an early departure or late arrival times. There’s also a Holiday Inn hotel in Richmond with a shuttle to the airport. These locations make it easy to tour ULI when you’re in town.
If you’d prefer to stay in Vancouver to take advantage of the tourist opportunities, consider the Hampton Inn & Suites in Downtown Vancouver. The rates include breakfast, and some rooms have a kitchen, so you can save money by cooking your meals. The YWCA Hotel offers extremely affordable rates.
Vancouver might be a large city, but it’s fairly easy to navigate by car. For convenience, renting a car might be your best choice, and most of the top rental agencies are right at the airport. If you prefer public transportation, be sure to get a Compass Card. This allows you to use any of the transport systems throughout the metro Vancouver area. With a DayPass, you can travel anywhere you want without worrying about how much the fare is. It’s good on the SeaBus as well. Your kids will love travelling on these small boats.
What to Do
Your tour of ULI will only take a few hours, so you’ll want to do some extra exploring with the kids. Science World and the Vancouver Aquarium are two of the most popular choices for locals and those visiting the area. If the weather’s nice, be sure to go to Granville Island. There are plenty of activities that are fun for all ages.
The Vancouver area is a great place for families, and it may just be the perfect place for you to live while getting the education you need to succeed. At Universal Learning Institute, we prepare our students for careers in the most in-demand fields. Schedule a tour to see how easy it could be for you to take your life to the next level.
