The Vancouver Aquarium (officially the Ocean Wise Conservation Association) is a public aquarium located in Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. In addition to being a major tourist attraction for Vancouver, the aquarium is a centre for marine research, conservation and marine animal rehabilitation. The Vancouver Aquarium was one of the first facilities to incorporate professional naturalists into the galleries to interpret animal behaviors.[7] Prior to this, at the London Zoo Fish House, naturalists James S. Bowerbank, Ray Lankester, David W. Mitchell and Philip H. Gosse (the creator of the word aquarium)[8] had regularly held "open house" events, but the Vancouver Aquarium was the first to employ educational naturalists on a full-time basis. Aquarium research projects extend worldwide, and include marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation.

In 1970 the Vancouver Foundation, the British Columbia provincial government, and the city of Vancouver signed an agreement to provide the funding to develop a public garden on part of the old Shaughnessy Golf Course. That garden, VanDusen Botanical Garden, is situated in the Shaughnessy neighbourhood of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada at the North West corner of 37th Avenue and Oak Street. It is named for local lumberman and philanthropist Whitford Julian VanDusen. The Garden covers 22 hectares (55 acres). In addition to displays of plants from all over the world, there is an extensive collection of native British Columbia (Northwest Coast) plants. A recently launched "re-wilding" outreach program aims to rescue and propagate native plants for reintroduction into Vancouver's regional parks.

The Spanish Banks is a lovely Beach Area in Vancouver. It is something like a group of several beaches coupled together. Although they are in one long straight line they are divided into three or four parts and each part as a unique perspective to provide. Although you can just laze around and soak in the beach atmosphere here, it makes a lot of sense to also try out a few water-sports at the Spanish Bank Beach park. Kite-surfing, wake boarding and surfing are just some of the many unique ones on offer. Another interesting thing about the Spanish Banks is the spectacular view of the North Shore Mountains that it provides. It is a great place to picnic or play beach sports and a lovely place for families and people who just want to hang out.

Overlooking the gorgeous Burrard Inlet, the Kitsilano Beach is a lively place with people playing volleyball, soaking the sun and walking their dogs. Many boats are available here for sailing and with the view of the distant yachts and the city’s skyline, the beach makes for a great place to click pictures. Take a walk here in the evenings to see the stunning sunsets that embrace the whole beach with its warm colors. The Kitsilano Pool is the only saltwater swimming pool in Vancouver and offers a warm pool along with a sauna and a whirlpool. There are 3 slides at the pool and many cafes around that are perfect to grab a bite after a rejuvenating time in the water. The pool is an extension of Kitsilano Beach (one of Vancouver's most popular beaches) and is 3 times longer than a standard Olympic pool- yet another reason that makes this place an absolute must-see during your stay in the city!

Robson Street is the center of all activity and the shopping street that every shopaholic just has to visit in Vancouver. This area is hip, fun and hence very popular. The shopping is ofcourse the main tourist attraction but there is a lot to do and see in the area. You can shop at the boutiques as well as the tinier stores. There are charming cafes and a patio too. There are also several popular restaurants to choose from. The evenings are an especially good time to visit since musicians and comedy acts take to the streets creating a lively and wonderful atmosphere. If you are looking for something a bit relaxing you can try a massage at one of the many spas. Even if you aren’t a shopaholic be sure to take a stroll down the street to enjoy the sights and sounds of the area. It is also a great place to stay at, being both central and popular.

30 to 40 min drive It isn't often that you can combine a day of hiking with a beautiful canoe trip through marshlands. If you do not have your own canoe or kayak, you can rent one from the Ayla Canoe rental shop for less than $50 for the day. If you decide to rent one, make sure you plan the day so you have enough time to make it to the Falls and back by 5pm as the late fees for returning the canoe add up quickly!
