Granville Island | 5 Family Friendly Places in Vancouver
85

I’ve lived just outside of Vancouver, BC for my entire life, making frequent trips into the city to explore. I feel so lucky to live so close to a city that really has everything you could want when looking for an exciting family vacation. Vancouver has it all, from the ocean and mountains to the theme parks and coffee shops.

Now as a mom myself, I get to see how excited my kids are when we get to take a trip into the city. Below I have listed 5 places to visit with your families when exploring in Vancouver, BC.

5 Must Do Family Attractions When Visiting Vancouver, BC

1. Stanley Park 

Get outside and explore the most beloved urban park in Vancouver. With views of the mountains and the ability to explore both the ocean and the wilderness all at once you are sure to have a good time. Take your family on a guided tour of the park or explore all on your own.

2. Vancouver Aquarium

Perfect for families with big kids and small the Vancouver Aquarium offers a day full of exploring and learning about our underwater friends. My kids enjoy the live shows outside, with a chance at getting splashed, as well as the Discover Rays exhibit.

If you are interested in learning a little bit of history around the city and be active while doing it City Cycle Tours is for you. Your family will love a guided tour of the city with the option to choose from a beginner to advanced level.

4. Science World

Whenever we drive into the city our kids can not help but mention Science World, the building itself is an exciting attraction. Not just for kids Science World is always changing their exhibits that are suitable for the whole family encouraging learning and conversation.

5. Granville Island

One of my absolute favorite places in Vancouver, you must visit! When visiting Granville Island plan for a full day of exploring the artisan shops, kids market, playgrounds, local market and eating the most delicious icecream. Plan to stay a while and you are bound to leave with a great experience.

Don’t forget to Stay the Night

  • I’ve worn these shoes everyday since surgery, three cheers for not having to bend over to put shoes and socks on. James calls them my “grandma shoes” I call them “awesome”.

  • Evelyn got the honours of putting the star on the tree today, she got it on her first try. 🌟
  • Six years ago James proposed to me after spending the night together at @vandusengarden Festival of Lights. I can't even believe that six years has gone by since we were sipping Apple Cider and walking the pathways with two year old Ezra by our sides. Now, six years later we enjoyed a night at #vandusenfol again, just with a couple more kids by our side. We bundled up, enjoyed mini donuts and hot chocolate, met up with friends and enjoyed multiple rides on the carousel. It's events like this that make the holidays magical and memorable for kids and adults. Swipe right to see images from our night out last week. #ad

  • Home from the hospital and feeling good (a bit loopy) but overall good. Surgery went well, and I’m home to recover. Thankful for all the messages and prayers today, and for my family for all their support.
