    Vancouver's closest local mountain, located on the north shore just 15 minutes from downtown. Many activities to do (obviously skiing and snowboarding) snowshoeing, sleigh rides, iceskating, zip lines as well as the famous 'skyride' which is an aerial tram. There's also a wildlife refuge and a few dining options, you're sure to get some fantastic views of the city from either the slopes or the restaurant.

    An interactive museum that's great for the whole family, full of interesting facts and puzzles. Really hands on and they have new attractions often as well as an IMAX theatre.

    A mini island in the heart of Vancouver, famous for its farmers market where you can find anything and everything. Also has many market boutiques and shops for art and gifts as well as fine restaurants. Wear your walking shoes if you're planning to explore it all, you can catch the bus or if you're coming from downtown it's much faster (and more fun) to get a water taxi that leaves from a couple of locations on the waterfront.

    Great attraction located in beautiful Stanley Park, for young and old alike. Large premises with heaps to explore, the otters holding hands are sweet and the dolphins put on a good show. Personally I think the beluga whales are the stars, so mesmerizing to watch! Good facilities at the aquarium for a family day out with a cafe etc.

    A very 'cool' restaurant that has a menu of organics and locally grown or raised food. Specialty cocktails that you wouldn't find in your standard restaurant. A great place for a special night out.

    Nice casual dining, good fresh beer, food and service (most of the time). They often have the hockey on if there's a game so bear that in mind. A great place to go and chill out with some friends or for a causal dinner out.

    Earls is a chain dine in restaurant and there are loads dotted around the city. For a chain, the menu is large and the food is tasty, the cocktails are always good and reasonably priced. Service is a bit OTT but they're just trying to earn their tips. Remember when you're looking at the menu, do keep in mind the prices shown exclude tax and a tip so go prepared to do some calculating.

    Japanese restaurant, great for take out, you can dine in but it's not flash. Delicious crispy tempura meals and noodle dishes, everything on their menu is really tasty. They don't do much in the way of sushi but have all the other Japanese favorites and they do them so well. Cute and friendly servers make it an all round winner.

    Tax and tip

    If you're not from North America or a tipping country it takes a bit of getting used to, also where you're supposed to tip! Standard tip is 20% of the bill, you have to in restaurants obviously but also for services like haircuts or nail services (which you're technically paying only for the service to begin with). All the prices shown in stores exclude tax so when you get to the checkout it's always more than what you were thinking.

    Very rainy

    Vancouver has the most mild climate of all the cities in Canada, downtown you won't find much snow but you will see a lot of rain! On the bright side, it's not too windy so umbrellas are a useful staple. You can pick up a cheap one from many shops along Robson street, the main shopping street.

    Most multicultural city

    35% of Vancouver's population are foreign born which is the highest figure in the world
