We arrive YVR Sunday June 26th at 10h18. Staying at Times Sq Suites for five nights. We will not have a car. We are a family of four w/ girls 9 and 11.
We don't want our Vancouver stay to be too structured, but based on research here and elsewhere, I think we would plan to hit the following attractions, in no particular order:
1. Stanley Park - incl aquarium? - bike rental? - picnic lunch?
2. Granville Island - good for a whole day?
3. Museum of Anthropolgy - is that at UBC?
5. What else is "must see"? Ideally that we could tag on to above list.
I believe there is a Safeway across the street from our hotel, so we will use that for b-fast in.
Any restaurant advice is welcome for both casual fare and a couple of higher-end places.
Logistics: I have been told to take a taxi from the airport as the Canada Line stop is not super close to our hotel - agree?
I need to get to H-shoe Bay for a 9h55 ferry on July 1st. We are booked w/ car, but apparently still must check-in by 8h30? So I am picking up car at AVIS (Hornby St) at 7:30 then family at hotel. Is that reasonable?
