We are a quiet middle aged couple who will have just a Sunday afternoon and evening in Vancouver in early November. As we love the outdoors, we have decided to visit Grouse Mountain in the afternoon to take in the view – weather permitting, of course! We will have an early dinner at the Observatory and then a few hours to spare before going back to our hotel in Richmond. We are from the UK and have never visited Vancouver before.
Can anyone suggest where we could safely go for a wander and maybe stop to see a few sights on the way back? We are not really interested in bars or clubs and would be happy just to soak up the atmosphere but we guess the odds are against us on a Sunday at that time of the year after dark?
