It’s said that Granville Island is Canada’s second most-popular tourist attraction after Niagara Falls. Nestled to the south of Vancouver, it’s the ultimate foodie paradise – combining a fresh food market with restaurants, delis and takeaway stalls, as well as connoisseurs of cheese, meat and chocolate (and much more).
Work off the kilojoules with a 9km bike ride around STANLEY PARK, the city’s iconic public reserve that sits on the waterfront. Rental is from $8 per hour; spokesbicyclerentals.com.
