Vancouver - Post Report Question and Answers
What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?
Tons of outdoor activities, if it ever stops raining. Whistler isn't too far away. Lots of night markets during the summer. Grandville Island will always be a favorite of mine. - May 2017
You have to just get out and explore. Truth is, after traveling throughout British Columbia and soaking in the beauty you also come to realize that Vancouver itself has it all right there. I came to really like the North Shore because I am a hiker/biker/kayaker, etc. Deep Cove, Horseshoe Bay, Whytecliff and Lighthouse Parks, Grouse Mountain, Cypress, and Mount Seymour are all within minutes of your door. Options are endless on land and water. - Jun 2014
Hiking, sightseeing, skiing, visiting outdoor areas not far away. - Mar 2012
Anything outdoors. Local community centers are amazing! - Jun 2010
Outdoor activities abound. Everything and anything you can think of to do outdoors, you can. Skiing, kayaking, rowing, hiking, etc. However, there are very few public gathering areas except the mall. The city core is not as interesting as say Seattle. - Oct 2008
