    Oh, the Suspense! 

If you’ve braved crossing Vancouver’s iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge (I have!) and are looking for a new challenge, Whistler opened its new 427-footlong (give or take a half inch) suspension bridge this summer—the Cloudraker Skybridge—and it’s a doozy. Located at the peak of Whistler Mountain, the bridge is at an elevation of approximately 7,200 feet above sea level, making it one of the highest elevated suspension bridges in the world. The bridge will be open in the summer (and to skiers and snowboarders in the winter) and includes a viewing platform with 360-degree, picture-perfect views. 

Washington’s Vancouver Waterfront development project will be getting a big boost this summer with the opening of two long-awaited hotels. The 138-room Hotel Indigo is scheduled to open in late June or early July while the 150-room AC Hotel by Marriott is looking to make its debut on June 15 at the Port of Vancouver’s adjacent Terminal 1. A 10-story condominium building, Residences at Kirkland Tower, is planning an October opening and will be attached to Hotel Indigo.

 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.

 

If you’re planning a meeting in Idaho, you’ll want to be sure and have a beer break on the itinerary. The state is the top barley producer in the United States and the second-top producer of hops.
