Additional info and tips about visiting Vancouver

Things to do and places of interest in Vancouver

Vancouver has plenty of activities to offer—choose from outdoor biking and hiking to skiing, or visit museums and parks, and much more. Sushi is popular in the area, and Vancouver is home to some of the best sushi houses with excellent pricing. Okada Sushi and Blue Water Café & Raw Bar are two popular establishments to try.

Three skiing areas within a short drive include Cypress Bowl, Grouse Mountain, and Mt. Seymour, which are just 30 minutes from Downtown Vancouver. For the kids in your group, visit the Vancouver Aquarium or entertain young minds at Science World which has numerous hands-on activities and shows. In the summer, the beach scene is always popular, but real summer fun does not start until Canada Day (July 1st), and the temperatures start to cool in October, so plan your visit with this in mind.

Tips and tricks for visiting Vancouver

Enjoy Downtown

Strolling around Downtown Vancouver is an excellent way to get to know the city and explore what it has to offer. Start at Canada Place then walk toward Gastown and Chinatown, which will take a half day on its own. Then, head to Yaletown for dinner.

Plenty to Shop and Bring Home

For gift ideas, stop at First Nations Artwork or bring home smoked and vacuum-sealed salmon. Also, a bottle of wine (or two) from a local vineyard is a great find to bring back.
