The VanDusen Botanical Garden is one of Vancouver’s most beautiful gardens! See pink magnolias in spring and enjoy the fiery colors in fall.
The Vancouver-Victoria ferry is often better than flying. No car? No prob! The BC Connector Bus conveniently goes from downtown Vancouver to downtown Victoria.
Nothing beats biking Stanley Park (and around False Creek) on a sunny Vancouver day! Lots of beaches and parks. A public market and craft brewery too at Granville Island.
See cool yellow cranes and maritime artifacts in the old shipyard building site outside the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier, a great 4-star hotel in North Vancouver.
Old “Gassy Jack” would be proud. Since he opened a saloon in 1867 in Gastown, Vancouver, the area has grown to become the city’s trendiest neighborhood!
