    Stanley Park

    108 reviews

    Of all that Stanley Park offers in trees, flowers, harbor views and totem poles, my favorite memory was of the swings in a tiny playground near the rose garden... I don't know if you've recently "swung" - or if you're so past childhood, the word conjures images of swapping bodily fluids in a dark basement - but it's the definitive ...

    Granville Island Public Market

    66 reviews

    Great place to eat, drink, watch the boats on the river and visit shops and galleries. My only complaint is parking which is in short supply.

    Gastown is filled with souvenir shops, restaurants and bars. It is also home to the Gastown Steam Clock, the Gassy Jack statue, and Hill's Native Art store. Look out for film crews. Easy walk from all of the hotels near Canada Place & the convention center.

    Vancouver Aquarium

    45 reviews

    Gorgeous aquatic facility with great exhibits and a true conservation ethic. Possibly one of the most gorgeously located aquariums in the world, although Monterey might have them beat by a hair. Recently went through a major expansion with tons more to see and do.

    The Parliament Building

    42 reviews

    Went here on a cruise for half a day - the building is beautiful (I happened to go when it was lit with lights just like the picture) and there are little street performers all around it. The only thing I didn't like were some of the people. While the ship was stationed there, we had many people shouting that ...

    Royal BC Museum

    33 reviews

    Wow! You can spend a whole day in here. One of the best museums in Canada. Lots of history about BC, the First Nations, and ecological time. Climate change is a re-occurring theme. Children just love it. What with an IMAX theatre and historic buildings outside, it is not a wasted day. Probably best to visit when the weather is ...

    Canada Place

    30 reviews

    This is a noticeable structure near the center of Vancouver. The building's exterior is covered by fabric roofs resembling sails. It is also the main cruise ship terminal for the region, where most of Vancouver's famous cruises to Alaska originate. When the ships are in port it is fun to view them.

    The Seawall

    25 reviews

    Can't be beat on sunny day as an outing for the whole family. Flat, and paved all the way around an easy bike ride even for small kids (our 5 year old has ridden it several times), about 10km all the way around so an easy bike ride or a very pleasant extended stroll. Rent bikes (and trailers too if ...

    Lions Gate Bridge

    27 reviews

    The Lions Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the first narrows of Burrard Inlet and connects Vancouver (at Stanley Park) to the various North Shore municipalities. The term "Lions Gate" reflects the Lions, a pair of mountain peaks north of Vancouver. The Lions Gate Bridge first came to my attention back in 2001, when UBC student engineers hung ...
