4. Complete your tour of Stanley Park at English Bay
, driving out onto Beach Avenue. Stop and check out the relaxing English Bay beach
. When you're ready to continue, turn left to go down Denman Street, a bustling and eclectic neighbourhood avenue that is worth a stop to stroll, shop and people watch at the cafes. Once you are ready to continue, take a left onto Georgia Street to go over the Lions Gate Bridge. You will see more breathtaking views of the North Shore and get a glimpse of downtown as you head over the bridge. 5. Leaving the bridge, veer to the right to head into North Vancouver
. Take a left at Capilano Road, go all the way up, and you're ready to take the Skyride
to the top of Grouse Mountain
where the views are travel-magazine worthy. Plan to spend a couple of hours here. If you're ready for lunch, you'll find a few great places to eat at the top of the peak, including a cafe, a bistro and a barbecue restaurant. 6. On your way back to the city centre, be sure to stop at the Capilano Suspension Bridge
(which you will have passed on your way to the Grouse Mountain Skyride) and explore the park's Treetops Adventure
, which takes visitors through a series of interconnected platforms and bridges linking giant trees. Think the Ewok's village in "Return of the Jedi." If you didn't eat when you were at Grouse Mountain, take a break here and have a snack or a meal.
