If you don't have much time in Vancouver, you'll probably still want to spend at least a half day in Stanley Park. A couple of hours at the Granville Island Public Market are also a must—plan to have breakfast or lunch, and, if you have time, check out the crafts stores. Walking the Downtown core is a great way to get to know the city. Start at Canada Place and head east to Gastown and Chinatown; that's a good half day. Then head north to Yaletown, perhaps for a glass of wine and dinner. If you're traveling with children, make sure to check out Science World, Grouse Mountain, and the Capilano Suspension Bridge or Lynn Canyon. For museums, adults and older children love the displays of Northwest Coast First Nations art at the Museum of Anthropology. The Bill Reid Gallery also has an impressive collection of aboriginal art.
