Best Things to Do in Vancouver

Outdoor activities -- including hiking, biking, skiing, fishing and boating -- are popular pastimes. For a real thrill, take a walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which hovers high above the ground. Even if adventure isn't your idea of fun, take a stroll through Stanley Park or enjoying the views from English Bay. Vancouver is also home to dozens of museums like the Museum of Anthropology and the Vancouver Art Gallery and markets like Granville Public or Lonsdale Quay.
