Things to do in Vancouver

Vancouver is a city of contrasts. Natural attractions blend seamlessly with manmade ones in Stanley Park, which also houses the Vancouver Aquarium and adjoins the trendy West End. Downtown, mountain vistas are the draw at Vancouver Lookout, while human endeavours are on display at Vancouver Art Gallery. Historic Gastown is the place to find contemporary galleries and vibrant nightlife. Finally, visit North Vancouver, home to the Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain Resort.
