Last year saw us embark on the holiday of a lifetime and spend four weeks touring Canada. We saw so many incredible places, but one of our most memorable was Vancouver.
Touchdown after a 17-hour flight saw our weary family longing for a comfortable bed. The Worldmark ‘Canadian’ resort was all we hoped for and more, providing luxurious accommodation in the heart of the city.
The Hop on, Hop off trolley was a great way to see the sights. We stopped in Stanley Park to spot squirrels and admire beautiful views of the city and Lion’s Gate Bridge. Granville Island had a great market, with delicious fresh food, eclectic shops and waterfront restaurants. Robson Street, the home of fashion and shopping, was just a few blocks from the hotel… Every walk home ended with bags full of goodies!
We enjoyed a morning at Capilano Suspension Bridge- an amazing bridge spanning 137 metres and suspended 70 metres above the Capilano River. If I didn’t find the bridge scary enough, the middle of the bridge was the location of my grandson’s biggest tantrum yet….. great!
Grouse Mountain was just 15 minutes out of town, and home to amazing annual snowfall, endless snow activities and the biggest tray of nachos you’ve ever seen.
We couldn’t come to Canada and not see an ice hockey game! Our last night saw us enjoy the amazing atmosphere of Rogers Arena as Vancouver Canucks beat Nashville Predators. The fast paced game, music, cheeky mascot and passionate supporters made this night the perfect end to our time in this fabulous city!!
