Prospect Point is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Vancouver. This viewpoint is located just below the Lions Gate Bridge, directly on the sands of the Pacific Ocean, and over the water form the beautiful mountains.

English bay beaches are on the south side of the Vancouver peninsula. It is a great place to walk or lie on the beach. But the main attraction is the beauty, English Bay is on the edge of downtown Vancouver, overlooking the city of Vancouver, next to Stanley Park, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver Island and the North Vancouver Mountains.
Canada Place is where the cruise ships dock in the summer, and where many congresses are held.

Granville Island is the right place for a little shop therapy. It is so easy to lose sight of the hours exploring this particular place.

You can just wander around and enjoy your eyes in the colourful environment and enjoy all budget fashion. It is an island located underneath the Granville Street Bridge.
Stanley Park is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Vancouver. I could in no way take the 50 km walk around the park, but instead settled for the quieter view of the aquarium in the park. I thought this was great and appreciated the opportunity to see some of the larger aquatic animals, especially the belugas. In the summer months enjoy the parks beautiful outdoor pools situated alongside the Pacific Ocean.
This is also one of the places to visit in Vancouver for its surroundings were a complete delight. It will take some strength to step on the suspension bridge and cross the ravine and river.

The walks in and around here were lovely, followed by a much need rest and coffee in the café back over the famed Capilano suspension bridge.
