With a great selection of fun and interesting highlights, you can find plenty to see and do in Vancouver.

It's an area of Vancouver Coast that roughly 600,000 people reside in.

Victoria, the provincial capital, is about 60 miles to the south of Vancouver, and District of North Vancouver is 8 miles to the northeast.

If you want to start your trip with the most famed attractions, Stanley Park and Granville Island Public Market should be at the very top of your itinerary.

Splashdown and Playland Amusement Park are nice places to spend some quality time with the children. Langley Sportsplex and the Vancouver International Film Centre are also worth visiting if the little ones aren't too worn out.

Vancouver Aquarium can teach your family about the urgency of aquatic preservation.

The Greater Vancouver Zoo is a terrific place to bring the kids for a fun-filled morning among local animals. Be sure to ask at the entrance about feeding times and where to find the zoo's favorite species.

There's a good chance you've already sampled the local beer, so why don't you head over to the Granville Island Brewing and see how they make it? If you're lucky, there'll be a few drinks lying around the place as well!

The area's wineries sure know how to rouse the senses. Meet the dedicated vintners, sample the latest blends and enjoy a fantastic day out at the Lulu Island Winery and the Krause Berry Farms. Looking for one or two more? The Wellbrook Winery and the Domaine de Chaberton Estate Winery should also be added to your itinerary.

Get set for fun and games at the Starlight Casino or the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver and challenge the dealer at the blackjack table. If you need another round of high-stakes thrills, why not head onwards to the Cascades Casino and the Great Canadian Casino?

Seleted from the dry deserts to wet rainforests, the plant species at the VanDusen Botanical Garden are bound to impress. You can also take a rewarding stroll through the Park and Tilford Gardens and the UBC Botanical Garden.

When it's time to take five, grab something for lunch and find a quiet corner at one of the area's picturesque urban parks, such as Deer Lake and Holland Park. Queens Park and Queen Elizabeth Park are two more nice places to while away the afternoon with a good book.

Learn a bit more about Vancouver by picking up some flyers and chatting to the staff at British Columbia Visitor Centre at Peace Arch and British Columbia Visitor Centre @ YVR.

To take in scenic views of untouched landscapes and tumbling water, head on over to Virgin Falls.

Are you looking for a place where you can take a break from sightseeing for a bit? Make your way to Sunset Beach or Wreck Beach for a refreshing day outdoors. Kitsilano Beach and Jericho Beach are also quite popular.

Need to get away from the bustle of the city? Head out on an adventure to Grouse Mountain and Lynn Canyon Park. Nature enthusiasts will also enjoy Mount Seymour and Burnaby Mountain.

Armchair marine biologists will love Whytecliff Lookout Point, an amazing marine sanctuary full of underwater creatures.

The area's exhibition spaces are brimming with tales of human endeavor and achievement. The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and the Vancouver Police Museum offer a range of collections that are sure to capture your interest. Another two worth considering are the Canadian Museum of Flight and the Sport Fishing Museum.

Embark on an exploration to the Vancouver Maritime Museum and the Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site, a fascinating day out for the entire crew.

You don't have to be Einstein to appreciate the scientific objects and innovations showing at the TELUS World of Science.

Our world is a wacky and wonderful place. If you're mad enough to think otherwise, some time spent at the Museum of Anthropology and the SFU Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology ought to be enough to convince you. The fascinating displays of the Beaty Biodiversity Museum are also well worth taking a look at.

Are you an art aficionado? You'll discover galleries of all kinds here. Swing by the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art to see the best of what this creative city has to offer. If you're feeling inspired, wrap up your day at the Coastal Patterns Gallery and the Spirit Gallery.

History lovers can explore the past at the Vancouver Museum and the Surrey Museum. The Bowen Island Historians Museum and the Burnaby Village Museum are also highly esteemed options.

The University of British Columbia and Irving House are certainly worth taking a look at, even if you aren't a history buff. More tales from the days of yore await at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery and Roedde House Museum.

The rich history of civil engineering is evident in Lion's Gate Bridge and Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, two grand old structures that adorn these waters.

Experience the region's spiritual side and enjoy some moments of quiet contemplation at Christ Church Cathedral and the Kwan Yin International Buddhist Temple. You may also like to take a walk around the ISKCON Vancouver or Canadian Memorial United Church.

This region's most acclaimed sights sometimes overshadow its lesser-known, but equally rewarding activities. Thunderbird Show Park and Robson Square are two worthwhile options. Also, think about a visit to the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts and the Evergreen Cultural Centre if you've got the time.
