Outdoor adventures await in Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver is one of Canada’s largest cities and its natural landscape, lush green spaces, and mild climate attracts thousands of visitors every year. Vancouver’s snow-capped mountains are perfect for winter sports and its seaside promenades and beaches are ideal for picnics and boating.
One of the best ways to navigate Vancouver is with a car rental. Drive through Vancouver’s three main districts and explore its culturally diverse neighborhoods. Visit Chinatown for specialty ethnic stores and restaurants, or Granville Island for theaters, craft stores and breweries. With a rental car you can also venture out for an epic day trip outdoors to Richmond, Whistler or the Canadian Rockies.
Take a stroll down “Gallery Row” on South Granville Street to visit some of the most exquisite art galleries in the country. Even if you do not intend to buy artwork, browse the working studios, contemporary galleries, and antique print shops nonetheless.
Should you be a coffee lover, Vancouver's coffee scene should not be missed. Ranked one of the best coffee cities in the world, enjoy a freshly roasted cup of coffee at Vancouver’s funky, hip and trendy coffee shops.
For 360 degree views of the city, visit the Vancouver Lookout in Downtown Vancouver at Harbour Centre. From the observation deck admire the stunning views of the city, the Pacific Ocean, and the surrounding mountains.
For a thrilling adventure, take your rental car and drive over to the Capilano Suspension Bridge for cliff-high walkways and tree top adventures. The Capilano is a swaying bridge that overlooks a river canyon and leads to the West Coast Rainforest. You can also drive 20 minutes from the city center to Grouse Mountain.
Take a gondola skyride to the top of the summit for panoramic views of the city and Gulf Islands. In the winter, Grouse Mountain offers winter sports including skiing, skating, snowshoeing, and snowboarding. In the summer, enjoy hiking trails, mountain ziplines, shopping, and dining.
