FOR A BUDGET
The best place to go on a budget is Stanley Park. Without question. It’s the most beautiful part of the city — and not just for those feeling frugal. Virtually everyone should make their way down to Stanley Park. It’s not just another park, it’s a green oasis of nature amidst Vancouver’s urban backdrop. Go and rent a pair of rollerblades, or a bicycle, or just put on a good pair of walking shoes, and then go explore the 30 or so kilometers (18 or so miles) of truly picturesque trails. If you need some quiet time or rest, take a good book, and head down to the Stanley Park beaches … but don’t forget to bring the tasty picnic basket you put together when you visited Granville Island.
