Things to do in VANCOUVER with kids

Vancouver feels like it was built for kids. There are so many fun places to visit, especially if you just LOVE the outdoors - and there are certainly more outdoor adventures than you can do in one family day out!

An island in Vancouver? Yes! And it makes a great place for kids to explore! Granville Island is moulded by history and creativity, and is a place hugely popular with kids. (When you visit you will see why!)

Want to relax? The Dr Sun Yar Sen Classical Chinese Garden takes you back to 15th century China, and is also a great way for kids to learn about the fascinating history of multicultural Vancouver.

Maybe you even want to grab a Stanley Park Horse Drawn Tour - with very cool old-fashioned carriages? Pretty awesome!

Of course, Vancouver has super fun indoor activities for the whole family too! Vancouver Aquarium is incredibly popular with kids (with good reason - it’s really impressive!), kids can spark their curiosity at Science World.

The food is amazing, the scenery is amazing, the attractions are amazing - the city is amazing!
