Day 1 - Vancouver


There are many bakeries in the West End, close to your hotel that you can grab breakfast at. The choices are really endless. If you would like to sit down and enjoy your breakfast, there are many restaurants that are open early and serve breakfast along Davie and Denman Street. Make your way over to Science World where the kids will both be entertained and gain some knowledge. There are many different exhibitions and you can easily spend a large portion of the day in here. After spending a lengthy amount of time inside, head over to Stanley Park for some fresh air and go for a ride on one of the Stanley Park Horse Drawn Tours. As the evening approaches, your tummy will start to rumble and Copones Restaurant & Live Jazz Club will provide both delicious food and great entertainment.

Day 2 - Vancouver


Bald Eagle Viewing is a full day activity. Drive an hour out of Vancouver to Brackendale, there you will be in awe by the thousands of Bald Eagles that await you. The views and birds are equally amazing. Grab some drinks and food from any of the caf├ęs or grocery stores by your hotel and pack a picnic to enjoy after you find a spot to watch nature fly by. Make sure to bring your own water as there are no facilities that provide it. If you're into fishing, grab your rod and get your BC fishing license and catch some salmon! After a scenic drive back into the city, go have dinner at Memphis Blues Barbecue House - the food is smokin'! The authentic Southern dishes will please any palette. Because you can't take the kids out too late, the CN IMAX Theatre is a good way to end the night before tucking the kids into bed. If you are in Vancouver during the summer months, you might even see cruise ships setting sail close to the CN IMAX.

Day 3 - Vancouver


What child does not like theme-parks? Playland is a thrilling way to spend the day in East Vancouver. There are many rides that are suitable for adults, kids and both alike! If roller-coasters aren't your things, there are also plenty of games and even concerts to keep you and the kids busy. After a busy day of rides and games, go to Incendio, it's a fantastic pizza joint in Gastown that will satiate that hunger you built up.

Day 4 - Vancouver


You and your kids will get a kick out of the HR Macmillan Space Centre. Located close just across the Burrard Bridge, it's just a short bus ride from your hotel. The great thing about the HR Macmillan Space Centre is that it's close to Vanier Park and the Vancouver Museum; so if you want to make a day of the area, it's easy to do! The HR Macmillan Space Centre has everything from a planetarium, a virtual simulator, laser shows, a cosmic courtyard and an observatory. The observatory is best at night! Jump back on the bus and go towards downtown. Make sure to grab a bite to eat at Vera's Burger Shack. It's a classic Vancouver burger joint that serves up high quality burgers, for a reasonable price. A great way to spend the afternoon is to head over to Lynn Canyon and check out the hikes and the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre. It's both educational and beautiful. Finish the day off with a culinary educational experience at Hapa Izakaya. This place is great because it's a fun atmosphere and there are plenty of Japanese tapas to try.
