Things to do in Vancouver
I’M A TOURIST in my own city. In my opinion, you have to be when you move some place new – how else will you discover what’s cool? As a means to get my feet on the ground here in Vancouver I started compiling this list of things to do. Some items were suggestions from friends, family and co-workers, others we’re simply internet finds or things I happened upon during my wandering. I’ve made a pretty decent dent in it over the past year but ultimately decided it should be an evengreen list – always growing and evolving with me. If you ever happen to find yourself in Vancouver, I highly recommend you consult this list. I assure you, it won’t steer you wrong… well, safe from #23. Japadog that is. *Note: I’m still working on porting over content from my other site so bare with me (and the links!) as they’ll take you back to
