  • Vancouver is a fairly new city, so when it comes to historical landmarks, we may not have as many as our European friends, but we have many that evoke what Vancouver is all about.

    The Seawall is synonymous with Vancouver and it's the best way to see the city. It's a landmark that stretches all around downtown Vancouver and makes its way over to the North Shore. You can easily spend a day cruising the Seawall and it's a favorite thing for locals to do on a warm day.

    Stanley Park is a landmark given to us by Mother Nature. It was once an army base, but soon became the city's escape from concrete and loud noises and is a haven of green foliage, fresh water and all sorts of trails to explore.

    Granville Island is one big, vast landmark that portrays all things Vancouver; local food, boat rides, artisans, unique crafts and friendly people.

    It's never hard to find the Gastown Steam Clock and that's because there are always a large number of people standing around it, and the steam and noise it lets off makes it an easy target to spot. It's the quintessential spot to have your picture taken in Vancouver!

    Gassy Jack was the man that started it all in Gastown, so it's no surprise that a statue has been placed in his honor. He stands tall in Gastown, still to this day, and it's also another great spot for picture taking to show that you were in Vancouver.

    When the 2010 Winter Olympics took place in Vancouver, the entire city was a-buzz with spirited pride. During the opening ceremonies, the world watched as the cauldron was lit and you can visit the infamous piece right beside Canada Place.

    On your visit to Vancouver, all of these landmarks are essential to your visit, so don't miss any of them.
