Cruise Ship Spotting at Canada Place
We loved just hanging out at Canada Place and watching the Cruise Ships come and go. In the two days we were there, we saw 3 ships come and go. Summer is peak season for the Alaska Cruise Ships.

Wander Through Gastown
Gastown is Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood. Wander along Water Street, where you’ll find a picture-perfect collection of old buildings, cobblestones, the Steam Clock, and vintage lampposts.
Located less than 1km from the Fairmont Waterfront
Sea-Bus over to the North Shore
Take the Sea-Bus across the Burrard Inlet to explore the Lonsdale Quay on the North Shore. The market has fresh produce, baked goods, handmade items and delicious fish’n’chips.
There are so many more things to do in Vancouver, this doesn’t even cover the half of it! These are all walking-distance options to do with your kids near the Waterfront.
