    Things To Do

    Outdoor & Active:
    Vancouver counts many activities for children of all ages: below is only a small selection of the ones most favored by Triptoes! As the birthplace of Vancouver, Gastown was initially a settlement that sprung up around a tavern founded in 1867 by sailor and gold prospector John "Gassy Jack" Deighton. This historic district's cobblestone streets are lined with Victorian buildings that today house everything from souvenir shops and First Nations galleries to stylish clothing boutiques. With informational plaques placed strategically along the street to tell the history behind various buildings and landmarks, Gastown is an excellent area for a walking tour. Vancouver's Stanley Park is a magnificent 1000 acres, almost all of it dense West Coast forest. Marked trails let families roam through the "jungle" of giant trees. Beaches offer a close up look at all kinds of boats. A playground with a vintage fire engine, a pool and water slides make this one of the city's great escapes. H.R. MacMillan Space Centre: Enjoy a family-fun learning experience with astronomy shows under the domed Planetarium theatre, live interactive science demonstrations in GroundStation Canada, hands-on exhibits in the Cosmic Courtyard, and star-gazing at the Observatory. The Maritime Museum was built around the historic St. Roch, the first ever ship to sail the Inside Passage across the top of Canada from west to east. Aboard, there are bunks-"Gee, Mom, how did they fit in something that small?"- the Captain's quarters, and more to see. Kids love to take a turn at the wheel and imagine they're ploughing through arctic ice. Don't miss the wonderful model ships-the museum has its own resident ship-builder, the historic boats moored down at the water's edge, or the nearby totem pole. Vancouver Museum will delight teenagers and parents alike. Peer through windows into a century-old home-and a world without TVs and microwaves. Through souvenirs and artifacts, track the story of the early explorers who started this city. A series of glass-sided mountains reveals the many sides of Vancouver-and an ancient mummy.

    Nearby:
