1. Capilano Suspension Bridge
We drove straight to this bridge from Seattle to get our "exercise" in for the day. I honestly had no idea what this park was or how big it was but I was pretty disappointed at it's size, especially for the hefty $35 admission. We joked the whole time about what things were worth and came up with about a $20 price tag for the whole thing. We did really enjoy it and felt like we did something everyone who visits Vancouver should do.
Empire Landmark Hotel which was the cheapest I could find for a marathon weekend. While it was super old with popcorn ceilings and dated furniture it was really clean and look at this VIEW from our balcony!
|it's always nice to travel with a photographer...thanks Kristina!|
After lunch we walked to a water taxi that took us to the insanely adorable Granville Island. Someone should have told us it was a GIANT farmers market before we ate lunch at a restaurant beforehand. All the food looked incredibly fresh and people were walking around with fresh crawdads everywhere!
A foodie (also the photographer) in our group did tons of research before we took this trip and found some amazing places to eat and drink the night away. Most of them were centered in Gastown so away we went. We started at Boneta for a cocktail. The food looked amazing there but we didn't partake.
|The Comte cheese with Quince paste was my favorite!|
I would say we took in most of what Vancouver had to offer in the 24 hours were there and I will definitely be back!
Question: What's everyone up to this weekend? I'm taking the train to Portland for a concert and time with a good friend and it's going to be over 80 degrees...yahoo!!
