Vancouver Sightseeing – Off the Beaten Path

Who’ve said that Vancouver is a “trail through the rainforest,” was dead right on the point. Voted one of the best cities in North America based on livability, Vancouver offers myriad things to see off the beaten path.

In this blog post, I will only present the top must-see things in Vancouver off the beaten path. Buckle up and read on; you will be glad you did.

Davie Street

It’s well known, but Vancouver is the most gay-friendly city in the entire North America. That’s right; I bet you thought it was Los Angeles or New York. That said, if you are in town for the annual Pride Parade, then Davie Street is the best place to be. Trust me; you will love the parade from this vantage point.

Brewery Creek

Did you know Vancouver has more than a whopping seven craft breweries within walking distance from the CBD? The Brass Neck microbrewery, for instance, concocted over 50 varieties of craft beers in its first few months. Ever since it has enjoyed a rollercoaster of popularity - and it has, indeed, continued its legacy of intriguing libations.

If you are looking for things to see in Vancouver off the beaten path, you will definitely love other microbreweries at Brewery Creek - Big Rock, Red Truck, Steel Toad, R&B and 33 Acres. Besides, you will finish off your day with a breathtaking view of the harbor (Tap & Barrel Olympic Village).

Shuttle or Bike Tour Around Stanley Park

Stanley Park is the top pick of things to see in Vancouver off the beaten path of West End and Downtown. A 404-hectare piece of magnificence, the Stanley Park blends mystical natural aura and fabulous attractions. Grab a bike and cycle your way around the 8.8 km seawall fringed on the side by a variety of lush temperate rainforest trees. Better yet, take a rental shuttle on tour around Stanley Park along the 1st, 2nd and 3rd beach. Oh yeah; the tour is much akin to a visual spa treatment.

Science World

If you are traveling with kids, Science World will be the highlight of your trip. With a magnificent geodesic dome, lots of exhibitions, and fabulous outdoor park, the Science World isn’t too shabby. How does an air-operated ball maze sound?

These are just but a few amazing things to see in Vancouver off the beaten path. You can also try local cuisine at Taquerias, patisseries, and finesse restaurants.
