Greater Vancouver Intown Attractions

Granville Island Crowd on a Saturday morning

There is lots to see and do around Vancouver. Take a tour of the city's waterfront, either from land or by boat. You can visit a museums, lots of parks and waterfront greenspace, and activities and sports to keep anybody busy (and happy). We even have a page that has tips on hundreds of things to do with kids.

The gem of Vancouver is Stanley Park. It is the largest urban park in Canada, and is surrounded on three sides by water.


Nearby Towns & Attractions

Lonsdale Quay Market in North Vancouver

Greater Vancouver covers much of the "Lower Mainland". You can head north of the Burrard Inlet to the North Shore community of North Vancouver, which lies between The Lion's Gate Bridge and Indian Arm, which poke north from Burrard Inlet. It has two large parks. The heart of the community is Lonsdale, which rises from the water's edge at the Seabus terminal. Nature lovers will enjoy Lynn Canyon's hiking trails and Mount Seymour's ski hill, and Deep Cove's water sports.

We even have lots of tips for getting away, including other countries' Online Travel Offices, links to travel guidebooks' web sites. We even have links to sites that can help you plan a honeymoon, eloped wedding, or romantic getaway. To round things out we have information about Canada & US Customs, a listing of Canadian embassies and consulates around the world, and an overview of our airport(s) and links to airports around the world (so you can check what to do during connections between flights)


Sustainable Travel & Eco-Tourism

Going Green: Eco-friendly content!

We recogize that travel inherently uses a lot of energy and a lot of resources, since it involves moving us (and our luggage) large distances around the world. Here are a number of suggestions for reducing our impact as well as our "carbon footprint".


Travel Feature

For those travelling between Canada & the US, those entering (or re-entering) the U.S.A. BY AIR are required to present a valid passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document. As of January 31, 2008, these rules include those entering the USA BY LAND OR SEA.
