Science World
- Located at 1455 Quebec Street and overlooking the waters of False Creek is the 47 meter high steel dome that houses Vancouver's science museum and Science World. The dome was designed for Expo 86 by American inventor R Buckminster Fuller, and is now one of the city's most striking landmarks. Inside you'll find a range of hands-on educational exhibits, galleries and theatres which makes it a fun day out for families. 

Grouse Mountain - From the summit of Grouse Mountain visitors experience the grandeur of British Columbia's dramatic landscape and stunning views of Vancouver. On a clear day it is possible to see as far as Vancouver Island in the west and the Coastal Mountains to the north and toward the Columbia Mountains in the east. Although there is a tough 3km trail that goes to the top of the mountain, it is easier to take the Skyride cable car. At the summit there are all the amenities of a ski resort including ski schools, rentals as well as food options and restaurants with amazing views.  There are other hiking trails from the mountain top, activities including bike tours, helicopter tours, wildlife spotting, disk golf and lumberjack show.

Lighthouse Park off Beacon Lane, West Vancouver is named after the hexagonal lighthouse built at the mouth of Burrrard Inlet. It was built in 1910 to guide ships through the foggy channel; Lighthouse Park is an unspoiled area with 190 acres of old growth forest and wild, rocky coast. The trees have never been logged and some of the majestic Douglas firs are over 500 years old. There is a variety of hiking trails in the park; some leading to the viewpoint near the 18 meter Point Atkinson Lighthouse. Enjoy stunning views across the Strait of Georgia all the way to Vancouver Island. A typical two hour hike covers about 5 km of old growth forests, taking the visitors through the fairly rugged terrain of moss covered gulley's and steep rocky outcrops where that are good vantage points for views.

The Capilano Suspension Bridge has been a popular tourist attraction since it was built in 1889. The bridge is 70 meters above the canyon, and attracts thousands of visitors every year. Nature lover are drawn by the stunning views and the chance to wander through old growth woods, trout ponds and a 61 meter waterfall. Visitors have many options including guided tours, variety of lunch options, the popular treetop adventure taking you 110 feet above the forest floor or take the Cliffwalk following along the Capilano River. British Columbia residences are offered discounts and season passes.

Old Hastings Mill Store Museum - Located at 1575 Alma Road the Old Hastings Mill Store was Vancouver's first general store and one of the few wooden buildings to survive the Great Fire of 1886. The building was moved by barge from its original site at Gastown in 1930. Local residence contributed a variety of historic artifacts, and today the historic building is a interesting museum.

Maritime Museum - Celebrating Vancouver's history as a port and trading center, the Maritime Museum's star feature is the schooner St. Roch which is on permanent display. Built as a supply ship for the Mounties in 1928, 1940 -42 St. Roch was the first ship to navigate the Northwest Passage in both directions. Other displays tell the storey of shipwrecks, explores like British Captain George Vancouver and marine artifacts from around our coastal areas.

Queen Elizabeth Park and Bloedel Conservatory is located on Little Mountain Vancouver's highest hill and has fine views of the city.  Despite being built on the site of two former stone quarries, the park's gardens are continually in bloom, beginning in spring when multicolour tulips cover the hillside. The domed Bloedel Conservatory is perched on top of the hill, and grows plants from any climatic zones in the world, from rainforests plants and trees to desert cacti. There are also free-flying colourful tropical birds and fishponds filled with Japanese carp.

Londsale Quay Market opened in 1986, this striking concrete-and-glass building forms part of the North Shore SeaBus terminal. The Lonsdale Quay Market has a floor devoted to food, with a market selling everything from fresh baked bread to blueberries, as well as an array of cafes and restaurants serving every type of ethnic food. You will find specialty shops offering a wide choice of hand-crafted products such as jewellery, pottery and giftware and textiles. The complex includes a first class boutique hotel, a pub and a nightclub. There are music festivals in the summer when visitors take advantage of the building's open walkways to take in the view of the port.
