Vancouver, British Columbia is one of Canada’s most amazing cities. You really haven’t done Canada until you’ve done Vancouver. Here are the places you have to go when you visit.
All over Vancouver, there are stunning hiking trails through wilderness and forested hills. If you want to see the ancient side of Vancouver, this is the way to do it. We hiked our way through vancouver. I had wanted to try to go camping but then we didn’t have time. My friend’s say it’s really awesome to be camping here, that’s for another trip, I guess.

Go to Museums.
Vancouver Museum is the place to find artifacts from all ages and all over the world. The Museum of Anthropology is the place to learn about our roots and customs. And H.R. MacMillan Space Center is where you should go if moon rocks, meteors, and Mars interest you at all.
Vancouver Artgallery is a huge museum filled with art of every kind. Abstract to photographs, this place is a stunner.
Do Fly Over Canada.
Have you ever wanted to be pilot just for the thrills? You can now. Well, sort of. Fly Over Canada is an awesome simulation of flying all over the best spots in Canada. I sort of expected it to be boring, especially after experiencing Universal Studios and all the simulations. It was not. And it was definitely worth it.
A great day trip destination just outside of Vancouver. The town has strong a Japanese-Canadian culture and was built on the salmon canning business. Also, it is the real Stoneybrook from Once Upon a Time! While you’re there, be sure to eat Fish and chips in Pajo.
So, going to an island is cool. Know what’s cooler? Eating fresh fruit, fresh seafood, and fresh muffins on an island. So I guess we both know where you should be if you want to be cool.
Another great day trip destination. It was named after the huge white boulder on the edge of the coast. It’s actually kind of gross—the rock used be white because it was covered in bird poop. Now the city keeps it clean and paints it white to keep the icon alive.
Speaking of gross, Gastown was named after one “Gassy Jack,” whose nickname came about in ways we can only conjecture. The neighborhood itself is actually very pretty, though. It’s filled with Victorian buildings, shopping, and fine dining.
Aside from YVR Flightpath Park, the harbor is the best place to watch seaplanes come and go. I wonder how many celebrities were in the planes I watched land? Maybe even Princess Kate herself flew past me.
Go To Whistler.
Whistler is a little, out-of-the-way town in Vancouver that is great for all things outdoors. If you like skiing or hiking, this is the place for you.
Visit the Parks.
All over Vancouver, there are strips of green where you can relax and rejuve. There’s a lot to see in the city parks, including art, walking paths, and kids’ play areas.
Lions Gate Bridge
Connects Vancouver proper to its sister cities. The bridge is super long, so a drive over is almost heart-stopping. At night, head over to a viewpoint to see the reflection of the lit-up bridge sparkling in the water.
a popular sport and pleasure activity in Vancouver. There’s a huge network of bike paths all over the city. You can take a self-tour and get your blood flowing at the same time. Try doing it in Stanley Park.
Go to Canada Place,
a huge cultural center where you can experience quintessential Canada. It also houses the Canadian World Trade Center and the Vancouver Convention Center. If you want, you can even stay there, at the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel.
Visit the Public Library
Walk around the Streets of BC and search for the Public Art displays along the way
Go to Lindt Chocoalate and Go Crazy
