Things to Do

  • Activities & Attractions

    So much to do, so little time. From city pursuits like cooking classes, museums, galleries and more, to outdoor thrills like whale watching, white water rafting, deep sea fishing, zip-trekking and more, there's never a shortage of activity in and around Vancouver. The sky's the limit, and even then, where there's a will there's a way (and a helicopter to take you up).

  • Entertainment

    While Vancouver might best be known for its pretty face, its heart and soul is never more evident than in the many events - cultural, sporting and other -- that light up the city's days and nights. From Canucks fever to gallery shows and big name acts taking the stage, Vancouver's cultural scene is up and coming, and coming up strong.

  • Explore

    One of Vancouver's greatest strengths is its diversity, and whether you're visiting for a day or a month, there is plenty to explore. Pack a picnic and enjoy one of the city's many botanical gardens, hop onto a boat and go whale watching just minutes from the city, or explore the many landmark sights of the city - there's so much to see.

  • Relax

    Vacations are supposed to be relaxing. So after you've gone to that museum and scored every deal along Robson, why not unwind? Nothing beats sitting by the surf at an ocean beach but Vancouver's also full of spas, and if your form of relaxation involves smores and tents, well, there's plenty of spots just outside Vancouver for that too.
