Wow! Spring Break is here already! Hopefully you find yourself enjoying family time, and the welcome break from the routine of scheduled activities, homework and all the other stuff that fills our days when schools in session. But if you do find yourself hankering for something new or a little adventure away from screens or the back yard look to Vancouver’s top attractions where there is always something new to explore! When you book on this website, you start to save if you book 2 or more!
If your crowd thrives in the outdoors, and likes a thrill or two, we’ve got some great experiences to choose from. World renown, and Vancouver’s oldest visitor attraction, Capilano Suspension Bridge, has three adventures that will take to new heights, Cliffwalk, Treetop Adventure and the Bridge each offer a different perspective on being suspended in the air. Kids will love the Rainforest Explorers program too, especially when they earn their reward. Consider heading up to Grouse Mountain for the day. Tickets purchased here get you a ride on the always breathtaking Skyride, which will take you to a snowy playground… check out the ropes course or the skating pond before it is gone for the season.
If you want to make a day of it, a drive up Highway 99 will take you to two pretty unique experiences, the Sea to Sky Gondola, whose’ s summit adventures will keep the thrill seekers happy as they explore the suspension bridges, accessible trails and the best deck for snacks and beverages. Then head to Britannia Mine Museum, a national historic site that takes you on an Underground Mine Tour, and features a 4D experience called BOOM!, these great features, along with the on-site exhibits deliver a comprehensive look into the role mining plays in BC’s history. And if you need anything more during your visit this March, their Spring Break programming includes lots of hands-on activities. Save 20% when book these two together.
Lucky we’ve got a couple of weeks for March Break, ‘cause there is so much to do!! A visit to Stanley Park, has to be on your to do list!! If you really want to feel like you are having a “staycation” check out the Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tours, it will take you on guided tour of the eastern part of Park Drive. The wagons are pulled by a spectacular pair of Grey Shires, Belgian, Clydesdales or Percheron working horses lovingly cared for by the barn staff and tour guides! And of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the Vancouver Aquarium! This is your young explorer’s opportunity to take in the underwater world up close, take in the 4D movie for sensory overload and visit the new exhibit Nature's Ninjas: Defenses of the Animal Kingdom.
And yet another day could involve an outing to Vanier Park, walking distance from Granville Island, a perfect stop for lunch!! Where you will find the Vancouver Maritime Museum, who recently opened their all-new Kids Gallery! Amazing hands-on opportunities to learn about pirates, shipwrecks, and nautical skills. Then head outside and explore their Heritage Harbour, a curated collection of vintage wooden vessels who once plied the Pacific Northwest or the Canadian Arctic. The Museum of Vancouver, just up the road, offers fantastic insight into Vancouver’s history, from the first peoples to 1950’s in the History Galleries, lots of scavenger hunts and eye spy games available to engage the kids.
Ok, ok, one more suggestion for Spring Break 2023 in Vancouver!! The ever popular and top-notch Science World!! Perfect on a rainy day, but maybe go when it’s not so wet, and there might be a few less folks!! While the permanent galleries always deliver, this year’s spring exhibition Skin: Living Armour, Evolving Identity! which includes a full-size rhinoceros, is sure to fascinate.
Whatever your crew’s interests and energy levels are, Vancouver’s best attractions can add to your March break fun and memories.
Book a few attractions and save, remember tickets book through this website are valid for a year, so if you want to save a few adventures for Summer Break, or Easter Weekend that will work too!
