The entire area is delightful. It can be a bit gloomy in the autumn mist. Most of the days are overcast. Enjoy the food and the parks. Losts of outdoors things. Try to go over to Victoria if you possibly can. Linda

don't miss out Stanley Park. it's lovely and very refreshing. Riding bike along it's track is brilliant. Canada's seafood is soooo nice. try salmon, king crab, lobster and etc. even fish&chips are so good. i would strongly recommend the rows of restaurtants in gastown.

Like to eat? Vancouver has lots of fantastic places for good food and good prices too, choose from chinese, korean, japanese,vietnamese, indian, italian, greek, mexican and western cuisine etc. Stay away from cerain area of Hastings Street that is between Chinatown and Gastown. This is Vancouver's rainy season right now so an umbrella is a must.

Visit Grouse Mountain - I loved the view of Vancouver and all the wood carvings at the top. The "Beaver Tails" are yummy (a sweet dessert not a real beaver. Was there in 2004 so may be a bit different now, but so wanting to go back to B.C.

All sorts of things to check out in Van...the Vancouver Trolley (www.vancouvertrolley.com) is the touristy way to hit the major sites in and around downtown Vancouver, from Stanley Park to Gastown and everything in between. If you're going to have your own vehicle, I'd also throw in Capilano Suspension Bridge, Grouse Mountain, Richmond (especially if you're into Asian eats) and Steveston (fishing village at the south end of the peninsula). If you are staying for 3 days or longer, definitely aim for a day trip out to Victoria or Whistler.

If you are using public transit to get around and will be going to many places sightseeing in one day,the best thing to do is buy a day pass which currently costs $9.00 and can be purchased at drug stores, supermarkets, 7 elevens and skytrain stations ahead of time and validated on the day needed.It will save you the hassle of carrying the correct change as the bus drivers don't give change nor take bills. Check out the Vancouver and lower mainland public transit site: tripplanning.translink.bc.ca

Be sure to visit Stanley Park and the totem poles. There is also a nice zoo there too.
