Start the day at the Vancouver Art Gallery, located in Vancouver’s former, historic BC Supreme Court House. This summer’s exhibitions include Alberto Giacometti: A Line Through Time, which focuses on the twentieth century artist renowned for his sculpture, paintings, drawing and design; Moving Still: Performative Photography in India featuring artists who use the camera’s power to subvert reality; Robert Rauschenberg 1965-1980 which explores the artist’s experimental, radical approach to artmaking;  and Vikky Alexander: Extreme Beauty - the first retrospective of the work of this notable Canadian Artist. 

Hop public transit, the number #19 Stanley Park along Georgia Street, jump out at the Denman Street stop, or make your way to the famous Vancouver Seawall, head due north on any street, then head west along this walking and cycling path through Coal Harbour, just before Stanley Park you will reach Harbour Cruises, Vancouver’s best water sightseeing experience.  Four 45-minute harbour tours are offered each day.  The view from the water is spectacular, particularly if there is a cruise ship or two in dock!  That’s every day but Monday, May to October! The narration gives some great insights into Vancouver’s history and architecture.  The tour will take you across to the North Shore for a look at this suburb, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for sea life, the harbour seals love to sun themselves on the barges and rocks at the mouth of Mosquito Creek.

Wrap up your day at the Vancouver Lookout, this iconic tower in the heart of Gastown, offers 360-degree views of the City, local mountains and our crazy busy port.  Check in with one of the knowledgeable guides.  They are sure to have some great restaurant recommendations and evening walking or entertainment suggestions once you’ve enjoyed the sunset and the city lights.
