CUCCOA - Conference Pre/Post Tours

CUCCOA 2016 Annual Conference Pre and Post Tours


Places to visit in Vancouver:

Coal Harbour:
Coal Harbour is a charming mix of business and residential, being home to both the Vancouver Convention Centre as well as condo towers. Around this area you’ll find neighbourhood cafes and restaurants, a popular marina, and the odd harbour seal bobbing around and greeting passersby. Make sure you visit Jack Poole Plaza, home of the Olympic flame from the 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games! For more information click here.

Stanley Park:
Stanley Park is one of the city's main tourist destinations. Featuring lovely beaches, miles of well-maintained paved and dirt trails, Canada's largest aquarium and an array of can't-miss kid-friendly spots (including a pool, water park, miniature railway and more), this 400-hectare (1,000-acre) haven is recognized as one of the greatest urban parks in the world. For a list of activities, restaurants and services in Stanley Park click here.

Established back in the 1890s, Vancouver’s Chinatown has been humming busily for more than a century with vivid colours, exotic cuisine and a vibrant culture. No visit to Chinatown is complete without spending time at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. For a list of activities in Chinatown click here.

Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood, it’s a gathering place for stylish locals and an ideal neighbourhood to explore on foot. A visit to Gastown should include a stroll along Water Street, where you’ll find a picture-perfect collection of old buildings, cobblestones, the Steam Clock, and vintage lampposts. Granville Island: This neighbourhood sits just south of the downtown peninsula, right under the Granville Bridge. The Granville Island Public Market acts as a hub of activity, but it’s also one of the city’s most important cultural districts with theatres, artisan workshops and craft studios. The biggest attraction on Granville Island is the Public Market which has endless rows of stalls that feature fresh produce, gourmet foods, baked goods, and seafood. For more information click here.

Granville Street:
Located in the heart of Vancouver, Granville Street is where you'll find Vancouver's main downtown entertainment district. Countless restaurants, bars and nightclubs make this a popular late-night hangout, particularly on the weekends. Stretching from the start of Granville Street by Waterfront Station, south to the Granville Street Bridge, the downtown portion this street is fairly sleepy by day, but buzzing at night. Capilano Suspension Bridge - The 450 ft (137m) long, 230 ft (70m) high Capilano Suspension Bridge has thrilled visitors since 1889. While the wobbly bridge and stunning location is a Vancouver landmark, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park offers an all-encompassing BC experience. History, culture and nature are presented in unique and thrilling ways with knowledgeable staff and interpretive signage providing as much, or as little, information as guests want.
