Great for any season...summer beach weather or a reflective walk in cooler seasons often under an umbrella. In the summer paddle boards and kayaks can be rented from truck on the beach. Has a concession with fish and chips, burgers, etc.. Avoid the Boathouse Resturant although they have a great bar. Food overpriced and not great.

Stunning and iconic Stanley Park has something for everyone. Beaches, world class aquarium. Stunning views out to the water and city. Loads of trails for wandering through. Go with someone though. Best not to go deep into the woods By yourself. Beaches, biking and reflective walks along the sea wall.

Fun because when the tide goes way out across a sand bar, great for walks and sunset watching. Also a bit of a Mecca for kiteboarding....fun to watch the acrobatics when the wind is up.

This is located in North Vancouver very close to another very popular Vancouver favourite, Grouse Mountain. The suspension bridge is thrilling and beautiful. Attached to this is tree canopy walk. Fear of heights....you may want to sit this one out. I would dare you to check it out, you won’t be sorry!
