I really enjoyed wandering around, looking at the handcrafts and being able to speak with the artisans about their love for their culture and willingness to share it, so we might understand. Thanks!

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.
