Capilano Suspension Bridge

Although it's safe, you will want to grip the rope as you step out on to the creaky wooden planks of Capilano Suspension Bridge, which provides a look at the glorious Capilano River raging down at 230 feet (70 meters). This popular attraction, situated at the park of the same name, isn't recommended for those who fear heights. Ten minutes from Downtown, the attraction includes a restaurant, post and gift shop and offers guided tours as well. All the park attractions are included in the admission price.

Vancouver Lookout

Get a 360-degree view of Vancouver and its outlying areas from one of British Columbia's tallest buildings at the Harbour Centre. Its observation deck gives an unobstructed view of the city, Burrard Inlet, the North Shore mountains, Burnaby Mountain, West Vancouver and Bowen Island. Getting there is a fun experience in itself; glass elevators whisk you up 168 meters (553 feet) in just 40 seconds. There are multilingual guides available for those who are interested.

Whytecliff Park

With sweeping ocean and island views, this park is a photographer's paradise. Take a picnic basket along and lay down a blanket and enjoy the fresh air. The area's calm waters make it a popular spot for scuba divers. The cobble beach is great for beachcombing, and there are secluded spots among the rocky cliffs for picnics. There are various short, well-worn trails that lead to view points on the cliffs overlooking the Strait of Georgia. Summer weekends are the busiest. It is easily accessible by public transit bus from Downtown.

Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site

Near the sunlit banks of the Lower Fraser River, the village of Steveston became home to a booming salmon cannery in 1894. The Gulf of Georgia Cannery burgeoned to great heights, going on to become British Columbia's leading producer of sockeye salmon, a feat that earned it the moniker 'Monster Cannery'. Besides being a beacon of the fishing industry on Canada's West Coast, the cannery also promoted a healthy multicultural philosophy, one where people of various descents worked alongside each other, rolling can after can of the indigenous fish. While the industry soon collapsed after the advent of machinery and the conclusion of the war, the building of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery continues to acquaint visitors with the golden heydays of fishing, through riveting guided tours of the cannery-turned-museum, and exhibits of age-old canning machinery and equipment.

Beaty Biodiversity Museum

This national history museum at the University of British Columbia has a mammoth collection of over two million specimens which includes the famed 25 meter (82 feet) female blue whale skeleton, supposedly bigger than a brontosaurus. The museum's main aim is to spread the awareness of biodiversity and how it impacts the world we live in. This underground museum is worth the trip for the suspended blue whale skeleton itself. Enjoy the information shared by the guides about the blue whales and other specimens. There is also an interactive lab where you can try to be a scientist by comparing the claws of different bird species and more, under a microscope. The museum also has a family space filled with books, art and interactive exhibits to keep the kids interested and entertained.

Vancouver Police Museum

This museum, housed in Vancouver's former Coroner's Court, boasts displays of Vancouver's most infamous era of crime. The Police Museum now offers numerous programs specifically for kids. A walking tour called "Sins of the City" details Vancouver's rich history of vice and vice crime. The museum is located in Gastown.
