Things to do in Vancouver
These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Vancouver, along with a brief description:
♦ Stanley Park
It would be a shame to take a cruise from Vancouver without visiting one of its most popular areas. Over 10% larger than New York City's Central Park, Vancouver's Stanley Park is often named as being one of the best parks in the world. Among the many activities you can take part in while at this park are running, walking, swimming, cycling, tennis, Pitch and Putt golf (as there's an 18-hole course), inline skating and hiking. There is even an petting farm and an aquarium in Stanley Park (Vancouver Aquarium, which happens to be the largest in Canada). One of the big attractions at the park happens to be its beautiful totem poles, which many visitors like to take a picture next to.
♦ Granville Island
This island is a formal industrial site that's connected to the Vancouver's mainland, which now happens to be a very popular place to go shopping. Among the many things to do there are checking out the great public market (which has over 100 vendors in it), as well as the marina, quaint shops and cafes, and various theaters. Beer enthusiasts should consider taking a tour of Granville Island Brewing Company's facility (Canada's first modern microbrewing facility). You should certainly consider visiting this fabulous area of Vancouver before or after your cruise from Vancouver.
♦ English Bay
The beautiful English Bay is home to many events throughout the year. For instance, each summer hundreds of thousands of people go there for the Celebration of Light fireworks competition. English Bay Beach is downtown Vancouver's most popular place to go for some sunbathing, swimming and sunset-watching. Those taking a cruise from Vancouver that are looking for a great beach, or even just a beautiful place to walk around, should certainly consider visiting English Bay.
