Add some fun and adventure to your Vancouver trip! Experience beautiful BC and the vibrant West Coast with trips to world-class parks, bustling communities and top attractions. There are plenty of things to do - and things to see - in and around Vancouver, including:
Recognized as one of the greatest urban parks in the world, Stanley Park is located on a peninsula at the northwestern edge of the downtown core, with the main entrance just steps from the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Stanley Park features gorgeous beaches, impressive old-growth forest, miles of maintained paved and dirt trails, and several other top attractions including kid’s playgrounds, incredible look-outs and landmarks, and the Vancouver Aquarium. Borrow a bike through our Bike WESTIN program or hit the amazing SeaWall walking/biking path around the entire park.
For an artful and inspired day out, head across False Creek (take a ferry!) to Granville Island, a unique and vibrant shopping peninsula tucked underneath the Granville Street Bridge. Full of live-performance theatres, restaurants, shops, galleries, and the Granville Island Brewery, this “island” also features the indoor Granville Island Public Market, offering hundreds of boutique shops and fresh produce vendors to inspire and satisfy your every need.
An iconic part of Vancouver’s skyline, this incredible multipurpose stadium hosts the largest musical acts in town, and features a stunning retractable roof, excellent amenities and top-notch executive suites. Check out the BC Place website to add a show or sporting event to your trip.

Day-Tripping: Explore More of Beautiful BC
There is plenty to keep you busy in downtown Vancouver alone, but this is also a fantastic opportunity to see gorgeous cities within a day’s travel of the downtown area.
Just an hour and half north of Vancouver lies the resort town of Whistler, featuring world-class restaurants, breathtaking views from the Peak2Peak Gondola, excellent shopping and a charming alpine village atmosphere. Travel by bus, or drive the picturesque Sea-To-Sky Highway on your own schedule - the journey itself is as gorgeous as the destination.

Home to the provincial parliamentary buildings, the impressive Empress Hotel, and charming shops, this historical city oozes with history and features a vibrant working inner harbour and promenade.
