5 Things You HAVE To Do In Vancouver

The ultimate guide to a successful visit to Vancouver

Posted on

1. Stanley Park

Stanley Park is a 405 hectare public park that borders downtown Vancouver, British Columbia Canada.

Throughout this park there are separate lanes for bikers, walkers and even rollerbladers! The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and will definitely make for some amazing pictures.

There are a ton of places near by to rent bicycles and it takes around an hour or two depending how many times you stop.

This is something everyone should see at least once in their lifetime

2. Granville Island

Brooklyn Haddon

Granville Island is a peninsula and shopping district in Vancouver.

There are a few ways to access the island, my favourite being a water taxi, super cheap and only takes about 5 minutes there and back.

You can also take a ferry, drive, or even walk!

There are restaurants, shopping, and local farmers markets! A great place to spend the day.

3. Capilano Suspension Bridge

Brooklyn Haddon

Ok this has got to be my favourite thing to do when I visit Vancouver. As you can see from the picture this is a very touristy spot but definitely worth it.

Not only is there a giant suspension bridge but once you cross over there are tons of hiking trails and seven more much smaller suspension bridges in the treetops.

Once you cross back over the suspension bridge to where you started there is a cliff walk that takes you through rainforest vegetation and suspended walkways.

Great experience for families, friends and couples.

4. Gastown

This is the BEST place for nightlife in Vancouver. Not only is it a beautiful area but there are tons of great restaurants, clubs and even shopping.

I highly recommend checking out this area both at night and during the day.

5. Robson Street

When in doubt, head on down to Robson Street.

This is where its happenin' people. There are tons and I mean TONS of restaurants, and shops on Robson. You can find anything you need down these streets.

If you're bored I guarantee you will find something down here that will interest you!
