On this private tour of Vancouver, we’ll focus on what’s cool to the kids—starting with the totem poles of Stanley Park. After learning about West Coast Native culture and spotting wildlife in the park, head to the Horse Drawn Carriage Tour for a lot of fun and sightseeing. Science World has a lot of hands-on exhibits, fun demonstrations, weird and wacky apparatus, and a good deal to keep kids entertained for 3 or 4 hours. One of the city’s nicest beaches.
Kitsilano Beach has a fantastic kids' playground, a basketball court, Olympic size swimming pool, drift logs to play around, and, of course, a wide sandy beach. After lunch, continue to Granville Island’s Kids Market—the only market in the world where adults are only allowed when accompanied by a kid! Up for sale are wooden toys, art supplies, kites, puppets, stuffed animals, and more. There’s also a giant indoor Adventure Zone and a 50-year-old caboose that’s now a bakery for dogs and cats.
