Some of the best coffee in the city, with a revolving selection of roasters sourced from around the world (mainly Canada, USA and Europe). Knowledgeable baristas can be a little snooty, but the space is fantastic and the coffee is even better.

I don't know how many dozens of beers this place has on tap (50+). Great rotating beer lists, loads of locals to try, and very good food mixed with friendly service. The renovated former salt building is a great adaptive reuse of an iconic architectural building in an area that's largely been de-industrialized. This is a good place for kids, too.

Take a walk down ~400 steps to Wreck Beach and join the fun (naked?). Parking can be a challenge, so I suggest taking the bus. Google Wreck Beach to best find the trailhead (AirBnB isn't finding it properly). Hiking along the beaches here is a lot of fun. Please note, this is a nude-allowed beach!

One of (the?) largest urban parks in the world, this is a great place for a ramble, walking / biking the seawall, taking kids to the Aquarium (if you're OK with that) and the stanley park steam train. Also, amazing history and fascinating totem poles to see and learn about.
