Seagulls at Granville Island
Vancouver is the largest city of British Columbia Canada. It’s also gorgeous, friendly, clean and filled with lots to see and do that would entertain people of all ages and walks of life. We had so much fun exploring the city and wish we could have had two weeks there just taking in the scenery and checking out every nook and cranny. But we only had a few days in this urban coastal retreat so our list is not by any means comprehensive. These are our three favorite things we did and enjoyed and think you would to.
Rent a boat at Horseshoe Bay
Rent a boat at Sewell’s Marina in Horseshoe Bay and explore the inlet
On your rented boat you will get one of a kind breathtaking views such as this
You will also get up close and personal encounters with tons of seals
And snuggle your babies while you do so
Visit Granville Island
Enjoy the beauty of Granville Island. Kids market and water play area, playgrounds and public market. Plus views of beautiful Downtown Vancouver
Stop by the enormous public market at Granville Island
Drool over the delicious cheeses
Pick up some seasonal fruit and eat outside while enjoying the scenery and views of downtown Vancouver
Don’t forget some veggies too
Bike ride in Stanley Park
Visit Stanley Park. We suggest you rent bikes just outside the park and bike the seawall. Beautiful views and a great way to see all the sites.
And if you have time (and kids) visit the Aquarium and say hi to the Penguins. Penguins always make my day. Always.
Also big thanks to Rose from Fresh Tracks Canada for giving us ideas on what to do in Vancouver. Love social media- especially Twitter when you can meet people and they give you recommendations!
