Crowd Sourced: One Hour One Tweet


With a culture as diverse as Vancouver’s, it’d be easy to suspect that those who know the city would all have a different perspective on how to best spend an hour downtown. Well, after asking for one-hour ideas in Vancouver on Twitter, it became obvious that there is a ton to do in just 60 minutes and more than a few people in Vancouver love Stanley Park, sushi and coffee.


Here are some of our favorite responses. See more by searching #onehourtips on Twitter.
