Sightseeing

This hike is located within a 15 min drive of the suite and one of Vancouver's absolute best hikes. It is perfectly marked, safe, and offers some of the best views of Howe Sound. Pack a light snack or lunch for the top and enjoy your time in nature. Free parking is available on Cypress Mountain, and the hike would take an experienced hiker approx 1.15 up. Recommended you have proper hiking footware, but one can get by in running shoes in drier conditions. In the winter, there is a lot of snow on the mountain and not recommended to hike. Consider a snowshoe instead.

The Grouse Grind is exactly how it sounds. It is virtually a stairway to the top of Grouse Mountain. Although many can complete the hike, it is rated medium-to-hard as there really is no relief from a linear club. Once you reach the top you can enjoy a cold beverage in their local chalet, visit the Bears at a bear sanctuary, and/or choose to hike down or take the gondola (10 min ride) for a small fee.

Neighborhoods

Kits is ranked among the top beach destinations in Canada, and certainly one of the most popular among Vancouverites. It is a long stretch of beach that offers all sorts of sports to participate or watch (from volleyball to basketball), great concessions, local restaurants/patio, and of course a beautiful sandy beach. Parking around Kits is free but harder to come by during peak hours. A great place to take the family for an afternoon.

Food scene

Vancouver's iconic Gaston offers some historic sights including the famous steam clock. Gastown stretches really 2-3 blocks and its sidewalks are charming with beautiful cobble stone. Fantastic restaurants and bars make this an attractive food scene for locals and tourists.
