  See Vancouver!

   The Vancouver Tourism website is a great resource for discovering some of the great things you can do while in
   the city of Vancouver, host to the 2010 Winter Olympics.


   A Few Suggestions


             Stanley Park: Recognized as one of the great city parks in the world, Stanley Park is close to the downtown core and represents a lush sampling of British Columbia's temperate rainforest environment. Walk or bicycle around the seawall, visit the aquarium, or perhaps just enjoy the tranquility of nature.


             Vancouver Art Gallery: Located at the heart of the downtown core (750 Hornby Street) the Vancouver Art Gallery always has wonderful exhibitions and collections on show.


           Gastown: As the historic birthplace of the city of Vancouver, just blocks away from Canada Place, Gastown is home to cobblestone streets and the historic steam clock. Also enjoy great dining at the many restaurants and cafes.


           Granville Island: Easily one of the most delightful treasure tucked away in Vancouver, Granville Island is home to great food, arts & entertainment, local artists, and of course, the world-famous Public Market.



           Shopping: Whether inside Pacific Centre Mall on a rainy day or outside on Robson Street when the weather is more forgiving, Vancouver has some world class shopping to be explored.


           Canada Place: Experience a film on the five story high IMAX screen or simply walk down the promenade and enjoy the view of Vancouver and Stanley Park. Visit Canada Place's website to learn more
