Vancouver is a great city for kids to explore – from the top of Grouse Mountain overlooking the skyline, to ancient forests in Stanley Park or the beaches at Kitsilano and English Bay, there are a 101 places to hike, bike, stroll or picnic. You’ll also find First Nations treasures of the Coast Salish and Capilano peoples, 19th century charm in the cobblestone streets of "Gastown,” and a unique mixture of native, European, and Asian peoples.

    Tip: Vancouver has an excellent mass transit system that incorporates buses, Sky Train system, and a SeaBus. For example, you could hop on the Sky Train to Canada Place, catch the Seabus across the bay to Lonsdale Quay, then take a bus to the foot of Grouse Mountain.
    A great drive from Vancouver is the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler.
