When one thinks of Canada, it isn’t a stretch to picture a Winter abyss. Yes, Canada can have some pretty harsh Winters, but not all parts of Canada are made equal on this front. While pretty much all points East of Canada’s most Western province, British Columbia, hibernate for Winter, British Columbia itself, particularly Southern British Columbia, manage to dodge the brunt of Winter thanks to unique geography. It is in fact quite common for this region to never see snow for an entire Winter. The big draw in this region is Vancouver. While not the capital of British Columbia, that honour goes to Victoria, Vancouver is a world-class city that is known for hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics. I spoke with, an online travel agency based in Canada, to get the scoop on the biggest attractions in Vancouver.
Capilano Suspension Bridge
According to Capilano Suspension Bridge is a must-see attraction for those looking to get in touch with nature. Spanning 137 metres across the Capilano River, this suspension bridge is a must-see for photographers looking to grab a great shot. With a 70 metre drop, this bridge is not for the weak of heart, but its well worth it to check out the areas surrounding forests.

Looking for the best view of the city and harbor? Look no further than the Vancouver Lookout. Conveniently located in downtown Vancouver, the Vancouver Lookout stretches 130 metres tall, giving you a chance for a great photo opportunity.
As the name suggests, Science World is all about science. Featuring displays, exhibitions, live science demonstrations, and a massive IMAX theatre, FlightHub says Science World is great place to learn about world marvels and have fun in the process. It’s harbour-centric location makes it easy to visit during your trip downtown.
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden
A peaceful retreat in the middle of Vancouver, this garden is one of the most authentic Chinese garden experiences outside of China. This beautifully maintained green space is loaded with trails, pathways, and more within its beautifully designed surroundings. Definitely a place to enjoy with a camera or just looking for a place that offers some peace and quiet.
