Our Hotel was located in downtown and not far from the Harbour. So but simply walking around and taking our time we discovered some of Vancouver's history and all its interesting buildings, parkes and places of interest.

LOVE Vancouver. It feels to me like a large town rather than a city. People are courtesy and friendly. Lots to see, do and eat! We only had 2 days before and after a cruise and that just isn't enough time to thoroughly enjoy this...More

We had a great visit for a few days and took in all of the sights. Many different restaurants and interesting little shops throughout the city. More traffic and congestion than expected, but overall a fun place to explore.

Vancouver is a "walking" city with great public transit. Whistler is a great little town, but if you only have one day, I would skip it as it's quite a drive there & back. Instead, I would enjoy Stanley, Granville Island... More
