A Day In Vancouver

Granville Island Public Market

Take a tour of the marking with Vancouver Foodie Tours company. It's 2 hours, $49 and a great way to sample up to 8 different items from stalls within the market.


The Aquabus is a great way to get to/from Granville Island. It's not only efficient, but the views on False Creek are just amazing.

Stanley Park

Rent a bike from Spokes, and head into the park. Bike at your leisure, stop for a snack, stop for countless photo opportunities, or perhaps lounge at the beach. This truly is the world's best park!

Spokes Bicycle Rentals

vancouver lookout

Nothing's better than a bird's eye view. See the tip of Stanley Park, all the way to BC Stadium and all of Gastown from up here. Your ticket is good all day long so buy it early in the day, but be sure to go back at night. Free guided tours.

I would stay at: Hyatt Regency Vancouver

It's in a central location making many things "walking distance." It's also Stop 12 on the Vancouver Trolley Company route.
