Located in the mainland of British Columbia, Canada, lies Vancouver, a unique coastal seaport city rich in adventure and history. Originally named ‘Gastown’ by early settlers who had a love of both storytelling and beer, the city features endless paths to wander, restaurants to enjoy and cocktails to consume, and outdoor activities to keep you busy for days.
Complement your Vancouver adventures by staying at a boutique hotel that suits your unique traveling needs.
If you want a local perspective on Vancouver you can spend hours reading through guides just like this one, or you can ask an expert. And where do you find an expert? Well, locally of course.
Your true local source, Vancouver Tours by Locals offers - you guessed it - tours created and led by local Vancouverites! From a challenging hike of the Grouse Grind to a tour around downtown or even a trip to Whistler, these private tours will make your trip to Vancouver unique and unforgettable.
We HIGHLY recommend a walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which can be reached via a free shuttle from various downtown locations throughout the day. You’ll be mesmerized by the beauty of Mother Nature. WARNING: not for the faint of heart or anyone with a fear of heights!
With over 2800 restaurants in Vancouver, picking just one favorite is simply not possible. We’ll cover 2 meals in one and recommend that you head to Sylvia’s Restaurant, Bistro & Bar for Sunday brunch. Yes, Sylvia’s has it all! Mimosas and squid, anyone? For dinner, set sail for Five Sails. It may be on the pricier side, but with its spectacular waterfront views and a focus on seasonal West Coast ingredients, we promise you won’t be disappointed by the ambience or the food.
Just across the Lion’s Gate Bridge from the city, the park itself has over 1,000 acres of land for you to explore on foot, bike, or (for something completely unique) by taking a ride on the miniature train. Choo choo!
Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, the Century Plaza Hotel and Spa has an amazing and courteous staff who will keep you completely satisfied. The hotel features studio rooms with kitchenettes, an onsite indoor pool, steam room, and a full service spa, guaranteeing a relaxing stay.
