Relaxing beaches, beautiful parks, theatre nightlife, exclusive shopping ...
Vancouver has it all.
Gaze at the picturesque Pacific Ocean from the beaches of English Bay, kayak the tranquil waters of Coal Harbour, or stroll through the tree-lined paths and seaside walkways of Stanley Park. For added adventure and scenery, take a gondola to the top of Grouse Mountain and behold the stunning panorama of the Vancouver Lower Mainland from up high.
Take in a symphony or the latest theatrical production at one of Vancouver's famous venues, including the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the Playhouse Theater, the Orpheum, and the Centre for Performing Arts. The Vancouver Art Gallery also makes for a fantastic day of art indulgence.
