You can sit and stare at the beauty, walk the many hiking trails, check out the totem poles, or have lunch at one of the restaurants there. Wonderful views of Vancouver across the bay.

A picturesque paved road at sea level leads all around the peninsula and is shared by bikers, roller-bladers and walkers. By bike, it took us about two hours round trip from Canada Place, where the parking garage gave us two free bikes for the day in exchange for parking our car there. Since the path is level all around, one... More

We took the Stanley Park bus tour add on to the round the city tour. The park is magnificent. I would recommend doing the loop first and then going back to see the points of interest that attract you. For us it was the First Nation totem poles and the nearby visitor centre.

The entire park should be given at least half a day. There are many spots to stop & picnic, trails to hike, a mini train to catch, the Vancouver Aquarium, the Seawall, the pond where you can feed the wildlife, nice tea room & restaurant & the many views that are worth the visit alone.
