Travel Tips: Things to Do and See in Vancouver

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada, is beautiful all year round, but with its gorgeous weather, this has become a popular vacation destination in the summer. Although Vancouver is a relatively young city, it has a lot to offer. Nestled between beaches and mountains, you will find this to be a natural and urban playground with plenty of exciting experiences for the entire family. While there, consider the following travel tips for finding adventure in Vancouver.

Popular Things to Do and See 

  • Kitsilano Vanier Park – This park is magnificent, boasting the Museum of Vancouver, H.R. MacMillan Space Center, and the Vancouver Maritime Museum. With vast open spaces, this is the perfect location for relaxing or flying kites. 

  • Kids Market on Granville Island – Designed specifically for families, the kids have plenty of room for playing in the ball pit, going to the arcade, or making something special in any one of the interactive craft shops. There is also an outdoor pond, great places to eat, and, for summertime fun, a free water park. 

  • Capilano Suspension Bridge – For older kids and adults, this suspension bridge is amazing. Included with the towering rope bridge is a unique collection of totem poles and stunning rainforest nature trails. If you have younger children, you can always visit Treetops Adventure, which is a mini-version of the main suspension bridge that has bridges interconnecting with trees. 

  • Maplewood Farm – To teach children about animals, this 200-animal farm is the ideal place to go. While there, children and adults alike have the opportunity to pet horses and rabbits. In the summer, the spring-born baby animals are really starting to show personality. 

  • Greater Vancouver Zoo – Without question, you really need to visit the zoo while in Vancouver. Every day, guests can watch tigers and lions being fed, enjoy a number of falconry presentations, and take the Safari Express around to different sections. On the weekends, you can participate in the Meet a Reptile program. 

Getting Around

Especially if you plan to travel to Vancouver with little ones, you need easy and reliable transportation. To make your trip to Canada better,  consider hiring a reputable limousine company such as Griffin Transportation.
