What to do in Vancouver
Vancouver is the largest metropolitan city in Western Canada. Its perfect balance of urban and natural beauty makes it a top destination for all travellers. That’s why you should add Vancity to your travel bucket list too.
So start wandering Vancouver in Stanley Park. Its 1,000 acres is filled with lush forests and top attractions. Have a splashing good time in the park’s Vancouver Aquarium. Then take pictures of the stunning views of the Lions Gate Bridge and First Narrows.
Continue your outdoor adventure and go to the Seawall for biking and rollerblading, or dare yourself to cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Many also think of Vancouver as the best destination for skiing and snowboarding, which you can take a crack at in Cypress, Seymour, and Grouse Mountain.
The city’s museums and landmarks will also make your heart race, so make sure you save a day or two to see as much of them as you can. Stop by the Museum of Anthropology, the Vancouver Art Gallery, and Telus World of Science.
Are you a sports fan? Vancity has the perfect museum for you too. Ride the bus and feel the glory and pride of athletes at the BC Sports Hall of Fame. You can’t help but be inspired by the rich sporting history of British Columbia.
If shopping is your best sport, Vancouver is heaven for all types of shoppers. Robson Street is the place to be for great fashion finds. Yaletown offers you artsy and trendy décor for your home. If you really want to shop till you drop, spend your dollars at the Chinatown Night Market. And for the freshest produce, stop by Granville Island Public Market.
Get to know the city like a Vancouverite and join their events. There’s EAT! Vancouver for foodies, the Polar Bear Swim, the Fringe Festival, Theatre Under the Stars, and stunning pyro-musical at the HSBC Celebration of Light.
