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 Visit 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.

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.

  • When I look at myself in the mirror or in a photo that shows a little more skin than usual I want to feel good. I want the first thoughts that come to my head to be proud of what it sees not thinking about the things I’d wish to change. So happy to say that I’m getting there 🙌🏻❤️🥰 I’m incredibly encouraged by so many women who continually share messages of self worth, strength and motivation both my personal friends, family and people I’ve never met on this platform. It makes all the difference to me and I know so many others. Today I want to say a big thank you, to you! #happyinternationalwomensday #iwd2019 #internationalwomensday Photo @juliechristinephotography
