Culinary highlights of Vancouver
Vancouver has a remarkable selection of dining options. You’ll find sushi joints, Chinese restaurants, fine bistros, and food trucks all over the city. The ‘locavore’ movement is also strong in the city; many restaurants support the movement by serving fresh, farm-to-table foods on their menus. Whatever your taste buds fancy, you’ll find dining locales that serve delicious fare such as halibut tacos, pulled-pork sandwiches, and even artisanal lollies.
Don’t miss local favourites such as B.C. sushi rolls, ramen, and the Japadog, which is a Japanese-styled hotdog seasoned with teriyaki, mayo, and other sauces. If you love seafood, Vancouver restaurants serve delicious salmon candy glazed with maple syrup, West Coast oysters, spot prawns, and Dungeness crabs. You might also want to try First Nations cuisine that is served at an authentic indigenous restaurant. The offerings usually include wild game, local fish, and vegetables. Buffalo Bannock burgers and elk short ribs are just a couple of the dishes that you can sample.
Explore local art and culture
Some of Vancouver's main museums are in the Vanier Park area, where you’ll find the Vancouver Maritime Museum. It showcases intricate and recreated models of ships, with St Roch, a 1928 Royal Canadian Mounted Police Arctic Vessel, the main exhibit. In the same area is the Museum of Vancouver, a civic museum dedicated to the city's cultural and human history.
A must-visit museum is the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, often considered Vancouver’s best. The museum is packed with artefacts from around the world, including impressive First Nations totem poles, Polynesian instruments, and Cantonese opera costumes. For art lovers, the Vancouver Art Gallery features contemporary exhibitions featuring local and international artists, while the Roedde House Museum in the West End is a restored mansion boasting antiques and a period-style garden.
Vancouver offers a wide array of inviting activities that will keep your children occupied and happy.

Science World on Quebec St is another popular attraction among younger visitors. It has lots of display space and an outdoor park with interactive games.
