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.

3. City Cycle Tours 

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

  • Day 2 of Vegas today and this is literally one of the only photos I’ve taken! We’ve been busy at the kids expo, walking and chatting all day yesterday. Going to spend the morning there today and then take the rest of the day off. What I wanna know is if anyone has been on this before. It moves Soooo slowly, I’m intrigued but, is it worth it?

  • My eyes keep shifting from her bright blue eyes to her really cute finger dimples, and it's as if she's thinking, "Mom. What are you looking at?"
  • Your hopes, dreams and aspirations are legitimate. They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms, only if you let them.

My recent trip to Ontario was a reminder of where you can go and what you can do when you follow your dreams. Which was also a repetitive theme throughout the speakers at @blogpodium •
