  • Grouse Mountain

    Grouse Mountain
    A trip up to Grouse Mountain is a must for visitors, the scenery is amazing and there's so much to do all year round. In winter it's a snow-sports playground, with skiing, snowboarding, terrain parks, snowshoeing and ice-skating. You can rent the equipment here if you need to and there are lessons too. While you're sliding around you'll be enjoying views of the city below, and the other north shore mountains. Grouse is one of 3 local ski areas, but only Grouse has the Sky ride, a big red gondola which operates year round.
  • Richmond Night Market

    Richmond Night Market
    This night market has something for everyone. Open from 7 pm to midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sundays from May to October. There are lots of stalls/vendors with gadgets, clothing, flowers, Korean stationary (my favorite is Afro Ken), cell phones & accessories, traditional Asian products, lucky bamboo... and on... and on... Bring plenty of cash!!! Stuff is cheap but most don't take credit cards.
  • Boeing Factory

    Boeing Factory
    The Boeing Factory is about 25 miles north of Seattle. There is a big visitor centre with lots of bits of planes and interactive displays. A 42 foot tail from a 747 looks huge when you see a person standing beside it, then realize it's just the tail, the scale is impressive. Display sections of the new 787 Dreamliner are nice to see, the windows have a touch-screen shade control which looks very cool. Also inside are TV screens showing the features of the new plane.
  • Pride Vancouver

    Pride Vancouver
    In August 2007 it was the 29th annual Pride festival in Vancouver. The festival runs for several weeks, but the highlight is always the Pride Parade, a great fun event for all. This year 385,000 people were there to watch the 2 hours of crazy creative floats, teams, music, costumes and dancing.
  • Downtown Vancouver and beyond

    Downtown Vancouver and beyond
    From street level at the Harbor Centre building in Vancouver you can ride the elevator to The Lookout, a 360 degree observatory high above the city. It's open all day from about 9 am to 10 pm and your ticket is valid for the whole day, so you can go back for night shots. It costs about $13 per person. The elevator is on the outside of the building which is great for views too.
  • Vancouver Aquarium

    Vancouver Aquarium
    The world famous, most watched animals on YouTube, the super cute Sea Otters, are here in Vancouver Aquarium. You will hear people saying "they're so cute", because they hold hands, it's called "rafting" and they do it in the ocean to keep together.
