After breakfast at your hotel and meeting with your Local Host® to get the lay of the land, you’ll receive complimentary tickets for the turn-of-the-(20th)-century hop-on/hop-off trolley to see all of Vancouver’s sites. Make sure to check out Robson Street (Vancouver’s main shopping area), Gastown (home to the city’s oldest buildings and popular with tourists), sites from the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Yaletown (the go-to neighborhood for high-end galleries, chic fashion and furnishings boutiques, high-concept restaurants, brew pubs, and salons), and the wonderful green oasis that is Stanley Park (which is actually 10 percent larger than New York City’s Central Park). If you hit the park later in the day, grab dinner The Teahouse. Surrounded by the park and the Pacific Ocean, the view alone is reason enough to go, but since you’re in the Pacific Northwest, you can’t pass up the fresh BC salmon with lemon caper sauce and pairing it with a BC white wine from the four-star restaurant’s extensive wine list. For young palettes, order the margherita pizza.
