According to Tripadvisor, the top 10 things to do in Vancouver are:
1) Stanley Park; a must see Urban Park in the heart of the city. The park was not engineered by man but has simply evolved naturally. The park opened in 1888 and still exists today!
2)Seawall in Vancouver; Within Stanley Park, the seawall was constructed to preserve the shores. There is also a walkway/pathway for bikers and pedestrians along the seawall which boasts beautiful views. This is known to be the most used feature of the park.
3)City Tours; like any city, there are a number of companies that offer tours of the city. These tours allow you insider access to the city and help you see all of the beautiful monuments and notable points.
4) Granville Island; this shopping district is located right downtown and is a peninsula that was once a manufacturing district but has turned into a hub of tourism and fun.
