From amazing sunsets, to the twinkle of the night lights against the water, visitors to downtown Vancouver will take in picturesque views, world-renown cuisine, and some of the most natural surroundings present in any metro area in North America. Taking the SkyTrain from your Vancouver airport hotel shuttle drop-off to the Waterfront station enables you to explore downtown Vancouver’s popular waterfront district with gorgeous views of Vancouver Harbor.
Stanley Park is just a short trip from downtown Vancouver and offers a natural setting of over 400 hectares (1000 acres) to explore. The park is almost surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and host several beautiful beaches to stroll on while viewing the rich marine life that calls the Pacific Northwest home. It is also host to the most visited tourist attraction in British Columbia called Totem Park. Eight totem poles are displayed in the park along with an exhibit sharing information on the native aboriginal people that inhabited the Vancouver area.
Vancouver Aquarium is also located within Stanley Park and is a great way to be introduced to the aquatic life of the Pacific Northwest. Along with getting to view over 70,000 animals, the aquarium has a special opportunity to schedule “Animal Encounters” with some of the aquarium’s inhabitants which puts you face to face with dolphins, beluga whales, sea turtles, sea lions and sea otters. Animal Encounters must be scheduled ahead of time but is well worth getting to be up close and personal with the wild life!
There are numerous sights to see in beautiful Vancouver! If your travels take you to the Pacific Northwest, make sure to stay in a Vancouver airport hotel allowing you the ease of exploring Vancouver without the hassle of transportation and baggage worries.END AKISMET -->
