This will be our first visit to Vancouver (and my son's and my first trip to Canada!) and I'm very excited as I love the Pacific Northwest. I'm a bit overwhelmed with all there is to do and see in the area and would appreciate some suggestions taking into consideration that we'll have a stroller-bound toddler with us, that it's our first trip to Vancouver and that we only truly have 2.5 days in the city.
What are suggestions for getting the most out of our experience in such a short time? We are from Chicago so we've been to plenty of museums and wouldn't be interested in them unless they're considered can't miss. I often like to do a city tour if I'm in a new place for a short time so I can see more than I could on my own. Would you recommend this in Vancouver?
We plan to stay in a hotel but haven't yet booked one. I assume we'll be in the general downtown area.
Any and all suggestions are welcome! Also if there are other threads you recommend I read please pass them along.
Thanks in advance!
