      What this guy said as well as Kitsilano, Jericho Beach, Granville Island (touristy but nice), English Bay Beach just to experience palm trees in Canada, renting bicycles to ride around Stanley park.

      Since you're doing 2 weeks I would recommend spending 5 days max in Vancouver and making mini trips to Victoria by ferry, renting a car and going to Tofino, Whistler, and the antivax zoo known as Kelowna.

      Hike up the Grouse Grind, then take the gondola down. Get some exercise, enjoy the fantastic views from the top, then take the gondola down as a reward.

    Vancouver has a great donut scene. If you’re ever in North Vancouver, visit Harmony Donuts. Very lowkey, run by a hippie old lady, cash or debit only. Best donuts I’ve ever had. They’re cake, but soft like yeast donuts. Lucky’s is good for seasonal flavours. Lee’s is probably the most popular, but I’ve had some and they didn’t blow my mind. I haven’t tried their iconic Honey Dip, though. Their There’s White Rabbit Mochi donut is also delicious.

    If you're doing the regular tourist spots, skip the Capilano suspension bridge it's not worth $60. Go to Lynn Canyon Park nearby, it's free. Otherwise just wander around downtown (don't east of gastown), go to stanley park, the beaches, go for a drive the sea to sky highway to squamish if you can rent a car, check out the lookout point on cypress mountain (probably not worth going to the top unless you ski/snowboard, the season will be ending)

      I like the capilano bridge. Pretty views and pics to be had, and also it's priced in worthless Canadian looney tunes bucks so it's not as expensive as it seems

      For what my opinion is worth I really liked Capilano suspension bridge, treetop adventure is included which was very fun, and it actually costs a lot to maintain it. Compared to what you would pay just to look through a very high window in NYC this is a bargain.

    I’d say use public transport to see Gastown, Granville Island, do a lap around Stanley park, then ferry over to Lonsdale Quay. That would be a quick day or two that would knock of some of the common recommendations and give you a general idea of the city.
    Highly recommend going North towards the mountains. Capilano suspension bridge park is cool but also very touristy. Cleveland dam has a nice view and pretty hiking trails. Deep Cove is another cool quick trip. Do the rock trail then reward yourself with a fricking awesome sandwich at Dip Co.
    I love Chinatown, but fair warning it’s filled with homeless that you’ll just have to ignore. If you want to drink and have good food I think it’s still worth it. Bao Bei, the speakeasy inside of Blnd Tger Dumplings, Fat Mao Noodles, Ask For Luigi, Propaganda Coffee, and Jade Dynasty are the typical Chinatown places I visit. Rickshaw Theatre typically is a decent concert venue if you like that sort of thing.
    I think the real fun is the areas surrounding Vancouver though. Drive up to Whistler, do the Panorama Peak hike in Garibaldi, take a ferry to Salt Spring Island or Vancouver Island, that sort of stuff

    I’d recommend hopping on the R5. It’s a fast track bus which will take you along East Hastings, which is Vancouver’s famous street for its homelessness and open drug use. It’s not dangerous during the day, and you might as well see it while you’re here.

      lmao last night I was hanging out with a Frenchbro. He said he was moving to Canada. I asked, "to Quebec?" He said, "lol no, their french sounds like shit. I can't stop laughing when I hear them. I'm moving to BC." I wanted to warn him that BC is garbage, but then I remembered Quebec is 10x worse kek

        I know irl someone who moved from France to BC and found it so joyless and atomized that even living in a midwestern city in the US was huge improvement for him in that its easy to meet people for social activities and the cost of such things is pretty reasonable. Go figure, living in a city populated 70% by Chinese mainlander boomers doing money laundering who have no concern for you actually sucks.

          Every European I've ever met visiting or living in Canada praises it. I have only actually heard negative feedback from the Chinese or Indians ironically.
          When I was backpacking in 2019, I remember every single time I told a European I was from Vancouver they would go on about how much they loved it and wanted to move to Canada lmfao.

            I think that might be the difference between living there and visiting. He probably visited in August and was like "its so natural and beautiful" then living there realized its a city not geared to young people (normal ones anyway) and its very expensive and full of rude chinese and indians and the "pretty" season is 1 month long then it turns into a wet, grey, cold, but not cold enough to snow hellscape for 9 months that drives people to either suicide of heroin addition.

              Vancouver also has a great climate it is never too hot and never too cold. As if winter is great everywhere else. Whistler and Squamish are also packed to the brim with Australians and Euros working here.

                I've never been to a more soulless lifeless city with a metro population in the millions. Millennials are the only ones who can afford to even go out now. Because real estate is so fricked there are no spaces for young people to curate any unique experiences. There is one good place to dance in Vancouver, the rest are boomer owned clubs playing hip hop packed full of smelly international students. I couldn't even imagine what it's like to be a young Canadian today

              Also the lumberjack outfit and maple syrup are icons of Quebecois culture.

                My first was quebecois and this is so moronicly inaccurate.

                French canadians are literally what would happen if anglos were of french descent. They, like us, have a gritty/pioneering culture unlike the euros (at least the traditional ones). How do they "imitate french culture" the frick? Cause they speak french? Youre stupid.

                Buddy Anglo canadians are probably the most wienersucking arrogant smug snide pretentious holier than thou people on the planet. Ever hear a dyed in the wool Anglo Canadian talk about the United States? 95 percent of the time they cloak themselves in the tone of a school principal rolling their eyes about a bad student because theyre force fed anti brain drain propaganda from our state media. True wienersuckers.

                Quebec is literally the only interesting part of Canada. Its no coincidence that Canada's best cinematic works are Quebecois.

    OP finally something i can help with

    loved vancouver!! visited with my crazy ex gf this spring
    overall, i was impressed. here's some notes and ideas for u

    the steam clock area is a bit of a tourist trap but still worth it to walk around
    lots of fun shops

    the chinatown and japantown are a lot of fun just be mindful there are lots of 'zombies'
    still worth the visit. just be mindful of certain blocks.

    the skytrain is very convenient and was clean
    the trains arrive frequently

    stanley park is a gem. amazing and huge
    rose garden is beautiful
    the aquarium is OK. personally i like the monterey bay aquarium much more

    britannia mine museum

    skiing in whistler

    taking the seabus from waterfront to lonsdale quay

    looking at the boats on granville island

    university of british columbia botanical garden

    smoking hella weed i remember getting pre-rolled doobies for under 5

    it was back when SighSee wasnt trash and it actually has lots of recommendations, which should still be accurate

    Unless you really want to eat Chink food, just go south to Seattle and call it a day. Better food (besides Chink shit), way better bars, brewpubs, live music and nightlife, all the SighSee stuff Vancouver has just outside the city. People-wise, they both share the same annoying passive-aggressive NW loser culture, so that's a wash.
