Here on Jig, we see quite a few needs posted about travel. Teresa recently posted a need looking for activities for kids for her upcoming trip to Vancouver, Canada. She is contemplating a trip there with her 3 year old and her 6 month old and wonders if Vancouver is a fun city for kids.
The Jig community answered Teresa’s need about traveling to Vancouver with some great suggestions. I’ve highlighted a few below.
Nick suggests traveling to Grouse Mountain. Also known as the Peak of Vancouver, this 4,000 ft tall mountain is located 15 minutes from downtown. It’s a great destination, according to Nick, because “people are skiing on it right now, but after ski season there are lumberjack shows and a hiking trail.”
Sarah suggests Granville Island
as “great fun for everyone, from the public market to art to events.” Granville Island is a great location to check out with kids as well, because once you’re done perusing local food and culture, you’re not far from another great kid-friendly destination. She suggests you “hop on a ferry and zip over to another part of Vancouver… and from there, take the Sea to Sky train to Whistler.
Capilano Suspension Bridge
For families looking for gravity defying activities for kids when traveling to North Vancouver, Nick suggests the Capilano Suspension Bridge
, a 450 ft long, 230 ft high bridge, originally constructed of hemp rope and cedar planks attached to Douglas-firs, and made today with pre-stressed wire cable attached to 120 ton anchors. The Cap Kids program
offers treetop and rainforest exploration as well as fudge tasting.
Teresa resolved her need with Granville Island, and we are looking forward to hearing how the trip goes.
