University of BCBotanical Gardens, Museums, Wildlife & Art!
Distance: 8 - 12 min drive
The University of British Columbia was rated by
the Huffington Post as one of Canada's most beautiful universities! While
it's world renown for its amazing educational offerings, visitors of Vancouver often enjoy its
botanical gardens, numerous museums and stunning hiking trails!
When you stay at Point Grey Guest House, you are no more than a 15 - 20 minute drive away
from the heart of downtown Vancouver! Enjoy our beautiful city during the day, then escape the
bustling city to our little getaway in
the evenings. Vancouver is famous for its mountainous scenery, rich cultural diversity, world class
restaurants and active lifestyle!
When people think of Vancouver, they immediately think of mountains and our world famous
Stanley Park. This beautiful, 1001 acre wildlife preserve is full of hiking paths, ocean views and a
wide variety of attractions, including
the non-profit Vancouver Aquarium, the
peaceful Teahouse and the
family-favourite Stanley Park Train.
The Gastown district is one of Vancouver's oldest neighbourhoods, but it's also one
of the most unique! Left in its original, heritage style, you can watch the iconic Steam Clock, with its
whistle, chiming in full display and admire the cobble stone roadways, while ejoying a beer at Steamworks Brewery or dining at one of
the many acclaimed restaurants in the neighbourhood. Maybe after, you might want to go check out the
statue of Gastown's founder, Gassy Jack? Or, maybe you'll
want to try some award-winning gelato from
Bella Gelateria & Gelato? If it's
excitement you're after, then try out the thrilling 4D experience of Fly Over Canada!
No matter what the season, Grouse Mountain makes for a great day trip! In the summer, the
Grouse Grind provides visitors with a challenging but beautiful hike up the mountain, with
spectacular views and plenty of rest areas
along the way. If hiking isn't your thing, though, then consider taking the Skyride to the top
and enjoy some fine dining or explore the wildlife! During the winter, Grouse Mountain offers some
great skiing! However, that's
certainly only the start of what this spectacular mountain by the city has to offer.
It's always good to learn something new every day but, at Telus Science World, get ready to

building's unique shape is actually its massive OMNIMAX Theatre! Catch any movie on that
screen and you'll leave awe-inspired
by the immersive experience!
"Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver’s horticultural jewel, is a major
draw for floral display enthusiasts and view-seekers,
and as a popular backdrop for wedding photos. At 152 metres above sea level, it’s the
highest point in Vancouver and makes for spectacular views of the park, city, and mountains on
the North Shore.
The 52-hectare park is home to the stunning Bloedel Conservatory. There is also a
gorgeously landscaped quarry garden, the arboretum with its collection of exotic and native
trees, sculptures including one by internationally
renowned artist Henry Moore, and diverse recreational offerings such as tennis, lawn bowling and
pitch & putt. The park is also the perfect setting for fine dining at Seasons in the Park, a
picnic or stargazing!"

Children’s Festival Society presents contemporary, inter-disciplinary arts
including performance and interactive arts activities that speak to the various ages of [their]
audience. [Their] inclusive programming is culturally diverse and
representative of regional, national and international artists.

Festival began as a theatre festival for young audiences presenting international performances.
Today the Festival is multi-disciplinary
presenting theatre, music, dance, circus, puppetry and storytelling and over the years has been
an inspiration to major cities throughout Canada and abroad, where annual children’s
festivals now take place!
"The story of Coastal Jazz and Blues
Society is the story of determination, passion, idealism, community, and of course,
music. Founded in 1985 and incorporated in 1986, as a community based, not-for-profit,
charitable arts organization located in Vancouver, British Columbia,
the society, from the very beginning, has worked diligently to establish Vancouver as a centre
for the creation and exchange of sounds and ideas between the local, national and international
[Their] mission is to not only increase the appreciation of the music, but to strengthen
the arts community by developing special projects, artistic exchanges, partnerships, educational
initiatives, community programs, and
collaborations that further the art form. [Their] vision encompasses a wide spectrum of jazz,
blues, world, creative, and improvised music, including evolving forms of jazz and the
technologies and media that influence jazz as
an art form."

Do you like awesome movies? Want to watch a movie under the stars? Well, then the Fresh Air Cinema in
Stanley Park is for you! Tuesday nights, throughout the
summer, people gather in the park with their blankets, snacks (or you can buy some there), and
friends to watch AAA movies projected on a massive outdoor screen. Definitely a good time!
"Both in terms of admissions and number of films screened (144,000 and 349 respectively in
2014) the Vancouver International Film Festival
(VIFF) is among the five largest film festivals in North America. [They] screen films
from more than 70 countries on nine screens, including the pick of the world’s top film
fests and many undiscovered gems.
Three main programming platforms make our festival unique: [they] screen one of the
largest selections of East Asian films outside of that region, [they] are one of the biggest
showcases of Canadian film in the world and...
have a large and vibrant nonfiction program.
Attracting a large, attentive and enthusiastic audience the festival remains accessible,
friendly and culturally diverse. As the critics say, VIFF is very much a festival 'designed
for the benefit of people who love
films and people who make them.'"
Are you a thrill-seeker or lover of haunted houses? Well, you'll get a real chill from the
Fright Nights, where Playland is converted
into a series of ghastly haunted houses and where costumed actors spend the night scaring you
silly! Grab yourself some snacks, ride
some of the attractions and test your nerve with the themed haunted houses.
Look for your tickets at the 7-11 convenience store, because they usually end up being
cheaper there. Definitely not recommended for ages 12 and under, seniors 65+, people with
sensitivity to strobe lighting, people with
high blood pressure, heart conditions, pregnant women or easily scaredy cats. Absolutely no
guest costumes are allowed.
