About Vancouver

Things to do in Vancouver

One of the best things about Vancouver is the endless number of things to do in the city. In addition to its natural beauty, Vancouver has an endless supply of activities to do and places to see, regardless of the time of day or year. Rain or shine, indoors and outside, there is a lot to see and do in Vancouver.

Parks and Gardens

Vancouver is home to some of the most beautiful parks and gardens in North America. Walk, rollerblade, or cycle around the Seawall in Stanley Park, a 1001-acre urban park that borders on the edge of downtown Vancouver. Hikers can roam the trails and check out the numerous gardens, monuments,  and beaches. Cyclists also enjoy the paths and trails of Pacific Spirit Regional Park. The stunning gardens of Queen Elizabeth Park are just one of the reasons to visit this urban park. Resting atop Little Mountain, the park offers several great views of the city while the Bloedel Floral Conservatory contains a huge selection of plants and several species of free-flying tropical birds.




Did you know that Vancouver is surrounded by almost 18 kilometers of beaches? This includes ten ocean-side locations as well as a fresh water lake. Vancouver's beaches offer something for everyone as well: sandy spots for soaking up the sun, outdoor sand volleyball courts, concessions for a cool treat on a hot day, and even quiet beaches where you can find some solitude and read a good book. Some of the most popular spots include Kitsilano Beach, Jericho Beach, Locarno Beach, Spanish Banks, and Sunset Beach. For those who choose to stay downtown, the first, second, and third beaches are great spots for sunbathing, swimming, and people-watching. Beautiful Trout Lake, just a few minutes east of Commercial Drive, is a lot more than a great place to swim. There are play areas, picnic spots and, best of all, free parking. For the more adventurous, Wreck Beach, Canada's largest legal clothing-optional beach, is located out near the University of British Columbia (UBC) campus.





Biking and Rollerblading

With its combination of urban splendor and natural beauty, Vancouver offers limitless activities. Being surrounded by the mountains and the ocean gives Vancouver a range of unique activities to offer. Biking and rollerblading are very popular and are excellent ways to explore the city. There are numerous bike paths and routes throughout the Greater Vancouver area including the Seawall through Stanley Park and around False Creek.
