Molly's Travel Tips for Vancouver

What is your best overall travel tip for Vancouver?

Rent a car! It's not as easy to get a taxi as I would have thought, so if you want to go places like the Sea Wall and other more off the beaten path neighborhoods, it would be more convenient to have a car.

Nancy's Travel Tips for Vancouver

What is your best overall travel tip for Vancouver?

Granville island is always a favorite spot for yummy food and local entertainment. Traveling with children means finding places that children can enjoy early in the day. We went to Kitsilano outdoor pool and had a great time. The pool is clean, and early in the morning it was not crowded.  The entrance was less than the price of a fancy cofffee and wr packed a picnic breakfast and enjoyed our early morning beachfront plunge.
