Vancouver is an international, metropolitan city with super close access to the great outdoors. Enjoy craft brews and foodie paradise in the culinary capital of Canada—then burn it all off while hiking, skiing or swimming just a few kilometres away. Pack your hiking boots and that classy ensemble you’ve been dying to wear, and head to the place that’s known as “The World in a City”!
The fastest way to get downtown from the airport after flights to Vancouver is Skytrain. Taxis and limos (if you’re feeling fancy) are plentiful too, but booking one of our car rental options will give you more freedom and cost less overall. There’s no major freeway in the centre of the city, but’s it’s super walkable or bikeable—options which suit the local just fine!
If you have all day to play, start your first morning in Stanley Park. It’s full of idyllic nature, museums and even an aquarium. For afternoon Vancouver flights, head to Chinatown, where you can shop for authentic watercolour paints and Chinese lanterns, then pig out on some chow mein. If you land after dark, check out the breweries and pubs in Yaletown or Gastown before heading to your Vancouver accommodation.
One of the most popular attractions is the Capilano Suspension Bridge. It’s big, beautiful and spans the Capilano River from two trees. A walk across is not for the faint of heart. You know what you won’t see is most Vancouver holiday packages though? Tickets to watch the bad girls of Vancouver—the Terminal City Rollergirls—do what they do best: skate around in circles while trying to tackle each other. Treat yourself to the fun anyway.
