Need Help with Itinerary: 3 Days in Vancouver

We have 4 full days in Vancouver and needed help with our Itinerary. We're in our 30's and traveling with two adventurous & easy going girls aged 3 and 5.

I need help with our itinerary below.

I'd also like recommendations for easy-moderate rain forest hiking / waterfalls close by (North Shore Mountains). We don't plan on doing suspension bridges (wife afraid of heights). Lynn Canyon Park? Capilano Park? Mt. Seymour park?

We plan on the following:

1. Go to Stanley Park - ride bikes if they have kid bike carriages.

- Check out English Bay Beach

2. Sunset Beach Park

3. Best Shopping – People Watching Street? West End: Robson Street & Denman?

4. Granville Island & Public Market

7. Vancouver Aquarium

8. Lighthouse Park

Hi Abe1M ~

I can't quite tell if you've got 3 days (subject line) or 4 days (body of text).

You could cluster Stanley Park, the Aquarium and English Bay and Sunset Beach in a day, if you make the most of all the points of interest along the way. Lumberman's Arch splash pool (take swim suits and a change of clothes), the trail around Lost Lagoon, the Cathedral boardwalk and trail off the west end of Lost Lagoon on the north side, swans on Lost Lagoon, the Nature House at the southeast corner of the lagoon at Georgia and Chilco, Ceperley Park playground near Second Beach, the Miniature train at Klahowya Village, the trail to Beaver Lake off Pipeline Road, the Aquarium.

3. Almost everywhere around False Creek, Granville Island, Denman St., any coffee shop with an outdoor patio/seating area, Commercial Drive Shopping? Robson St, Pacific Centre Mall

For your North Shore day, Lighthouse Park at the far west of West Vancouver, and Capilano River Regional Park including Capilano Pacific Trail, Lynn Headwaters and/or Seymour Conservation area with Rice Lake:



You might also consider Maplewood Farm and Maplewood Conservation area:

I think you might be interested in knowing about Steveston, about an hour by transit or 40 min by car. Interesting fishing village, Garry Point park, fish boats on the Fraser River,
