Chris Wheeler BC field reporter, and we’re here to check out Vancouver for the day.

And the thing I really like about Vancouver is it’s this mixture between cosmopolitan and nature experiences. And you can visit any time of the year and there is tons to do.

So we’ve got a Tourism British colony itinerary that shows trip ideas and activities so we’re going to explore the city and we’re going to start off with going and checking out the Stanley Park Sea Wall.

Visitor, Scottish Female: “We’re all from Scotland got a few days in Vancouver so hired some bikes and we’re going to cycle around Stanley Park and see the views.”

And the Stanley Park Sea Wall is nine kilometres and ends in English Bay and then heads right into downtown.

A Couple, Male: “We’re just taking the pup for a walk in Gastown today and just enjoying the sunshine, checking out some of the shops and cool buildings down here.”

Gastown is the oldest part in Vancouver and recently is morphed into a very trendy district. And this is Gassy Jack.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Now we’re heading over to jump on a foot passenger ferry to Granville Island.

Jeremy, Captain, False Creek Ferries: “So Granville Island is one of the more unique places in Vancouver. You can get here a number of ways. My personal favorite way is taking a little False Creek Ferry.

Welcome to Granville Island! Enjoy the day.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Guest, Female: “We took the Aqua bus over from Yaletown to spend the afternoon eating pizza. We loved Granville Island; it’s our backyard.

Granville Island has all types of shops; they even have ones that specialize in hammocks — now that’s my type of shop.

Talya, The Hang Out Place: “There’s lots of things to do down here, from getting amazing food in the public market to browsing around the cool, perky shops and of course the hangout place: come put your feet up, go walking around the island.”

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

So after hitting Granville Island and the market now it’s time to see some of Vancouver’s art culture at the Museum of Anthropology.

Vivienne, Museum of Anthropology: “You can expect to see at the Museum of Anthropology. We have many objects from artists who are from the northwest close to BC. We also have a dazzling display from all around the world.”

So after you explore Vancouver for the day and you head into the evening make sure to dine at one of the many restaurants and check out the nightlife that all contribute to making Vancouver a world-class city.
