Fodor's Pacific Northwest
Canada Place Review
Extending four city blocks (about a mile and a half) north into Burrard Inlet, this complex mimics the style and size of a luxury ocean liner, complete with exterior explanades and a landmark roofline that resembles five sails—actually made with NASA-invented material, a Teflon-coated fiberglass once used in astronaut space suits. Home to Vancouver's main cruise-ship terminal, Canada Place can accommodate up to four liners at once. The Canadian Trail on the west side of the building features displays about the country's provinces and territories; use your smartphone or tablet to access multimedia content along the way: there's free Wi-Fi. Also check out the War of 1812 Experience, which commemorates the bicentennial of this conflict. Canada Place is also home to the posh Pan Pacific Hotel, and both buildings make up the Vancouver Convention Centre (604/689–8232). A waterfront promenades winds all the way to (and around) Stanley Park, presenting spectacular vantage points from which to view Burrard Inlet and the North Shore Mountains; plaques posted at intervals offer historical information about the city and its waterfront.
Port Authority Interpretive Centre. At the north end of the complex, at the Port Authority Interpretive Centre, you can catch a video about the workings of the port, see some historic images of Vancouver's waterfront, or try your hand at a virtual container-loading game. 604/665–9179. Free. Weekdays 9–4.
