Vancouver, B.C.

We are spending a few days in Vancouver and would like to find good, off the beaten path restaurants and sights.
gardens, museums, zoos, hiking, and getting a feel for the city.

Depending on where you are staying in Vancouver, I'd suggest making your way down Robson Street, or the Kitsilano area. You'll find all sorts of neat shops and restaurants. There are just so many places to go and see. If you are staying at any of the major hotels downtown (ie: the Pan Pacific) you will be close to the sea wall and Stanley Park. You could walk forever around there, and it's very beautiful. Also, go to Granville Island. You can take a quick ferry to it if you are walking around the sea wall area (only costs a dollar or two). There are some wonderful restaurants there. Another great restaurant close to Robson and Denman St.'s is the Macaroni Grill.
I'd recommend a bus tour of the city; it'll spare you the headaches of driving. There's always lots to do and see in Vancouver. You might want to see if they have a web site to give you some highlights. One last suggestion...bring an umbrella. You never know if you'll get caught in the rain!

Be sure to visit the wonderful atrium at Queen Elizabeth Park. Also Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge. Up on Mt. Seymour you can find some trails and great views of the City. Like Indian food? Try Rubina Tandoori (terrific). Also Blue Note for jazz. Mootai for chinese, & Pink Pearl. Have a walk around Granville Island. Extra time? Horseshoe Bay or up Squamish Inlet. Splendid natural history museum at UBC. Enjoy, fine City!

Vancouver is wonderful; you'll have a marvelous time. On your "Don't Miss" list should be Van Dusen Gardens -- a horticultural extravaganza with acres and acres of gorgeous gardens. Plan to spend an entire afternoon; you'll want enough time to see it all including fuchsias, roses, perennials, there's even an ilex (holly) collection that is outstanding.
