North America - Canada - Vancouver - A Day In Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada - A Day in Vancouver

We caught the Big Bus on Howe Street – There are 23 stops on the Hop-on, Hop-off City Loop.

English Bay – Sculpture of Giant laughing Statues - 14 enormous bronze statues – in all different poses – of a shirtless guy laughing hysterically.

At Stanley Park, we got off the bus and took the extra Stanley Park Tour, which is part of the package. The First Nations Totem Poles were terrific.

Brockton Point Lighthouse

Girl in a Wetsuit is a life-size bronze sculpture by Elek Imredy of a woman in a  wetsuit, located on a rock in the water along the north side of Stanley Park.

Prospect Point

Lions Gate Bridge

We got off the bus and took a walk – we saw the working steam clock, one of only a few in the world, located in Vancouver's Victorian Gastown.

The statue of Gassy Jack, the founding father of Vancouver, Captain John "Gassy Jack" Deighton

Coal Harbour – Downtown Vancouver
The Digital Orca is a 2009 sculpture by Douglas Coupland, located adjacent to the Vancouver Convention Centre.

The Olympic Caudron located in Jack Poole Plaza

Granville Island
I know this is a very Touristy place – but it is so colorful.

We took the False Creek Ferry back to our hotel.


We went to Happy Hour at the Flying Pig, one of Vancouver's best neighborhood restaurants in Yaletown. 4-6pm

App's were $6-8, selected wine and beer $5-6.  We had Truffle Mac n Cheese, Salmon Cakes Halibut poppers and Brussels Sprouts

We had a beautiful day in Vancouver – can't wait to come back and see more of it. Here's one final photo that was taken on Burrard Bridge at sunset.
