Three Day Vancouver Itinerary

Here is my three day Vancouver, Canada Itinerary. There’s so much more here to discover, like any place, but these are a few of the highlights.

Day 1 – Arrive for the Vancouver Aquarium’s opening in Stanley Park before hanging out there for the rest of the day, walking around the Sea Wall and dining in the park at one of its great restaurants. I recommend here! Get a map to help you explore all the trails.

Day 2 – Bright and early arrival at Capilano Suspension Bridge to get it to yourself. Head to White Rock along the coast for the beach and dock in the afternoon. Have dinner at sunset at this restaurant for awesome views.

Day 3 – Spend the day at Granville Island exploring the shops and trying out their brewery and distillery. Take a water taxi from here for extra exploration, possibly to Yale Town for coffee. Head back to Granville and grab supper at the Vancouver Fish Co. Its delightful and I highly recommend the surf and turf dinner (the steak’s Albertan and you can’t beat it!)

There you have it! My three day itinerary of Vancouver, based on a trip there. This trip does assume you have a car, but in Canada a car tends to be a must: we’re so spread out you know.
