Vancouver, BC has a wealth of attractions and activities to explore. Whether it's food, fun or fitness, there are many different choices for all seasons. Below are just a few of the great places we love to visit with our own friends and family. Get out and enjoy this beautiful city!
This famous Vancouver attraction features waterfront restaurants, theatres, galleries, studios, unique shops, cafes and fabulous fresh food market. Granville Island is as close to a bustling town square as you will find in a major North American city. Locals and visitors come together to be inspired, to be entertained or simply take in some of its unique atmosphere. At the market you can sample local and exotic flavours from the very best farmers, bakers, butchers and fishmongers the city has to offer. One of the best places to find fresh and unique ingrediants for a dinner party or picnic. There's crafts galore and buskers that will entertain you with music, balloon animals and jugglers. Don't wait for summer, this is the perfect place to explore in all seasons.
Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain
Whistler and Blackcomb are located in the spectacular Coast Mountains of British Columbia, and just two hours north of Vancouver by bus or car. The resort is consistently ranked as number one in North America. Whistler features two beautiful mountains, amazing skiing and snowboarding conditions, four championship golf courses, more than 200 shops, 90 restaurants and bars, accomodations of all sizes and luxuries, hiking trails, spas and in the summer months some of the best mountain biking in the world. Grab your board, skis, bike or hiking boots and head for the hills.
This 22km (13.7 miles) walking, jogging, cycling and inline skating path lines Vancouver's waterfront from the convention centre on Burrard Inlet (Coal Harbour), around Stanley Park and False Creek, past Granville Island and ending at Kitsilano Beach Park. The Seawall is a fabulous way to get some exercise and see Vancouver. In the winter months, watch the waves crash against the wall along Stanley Park and in the summer enjoy an ice cream cone and a stroll along Kitsilano beach. Simply spectacular!
