Vancouver Travel Guide for a Short Getaway after a Camping Trip

Vancouver is a popular tourist hotspot with good reason. A firm favorite amongst solo travelers, families, honeymooners and retirees alike, there’s something in the city for everyone and you’re guaranteed to find something to your liking. 

At the same time, you’ll want to tailor your itinerary to make sure that you’re spending your time doing what’s most important to you. The good news is that if you’re looking for a little bit of inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Here are just a few of our tips to make the most of a quick trip to Vancouver after you’ve been out camping in the region: 

Visit Vancouver Island

Speaking of cruises, you could also head off on a day cruise to Vancouver Island, which is known for its pleasant climate, its tourist attractions and its association with the arts. There’s plenty for you to see and do there, and you won’t want to miss out when you’re so close. You might want to stay over for a couple of nights instead of trying to cram everything into a day trip, though.

Get active at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is one of Vancouver’s most popular tourist attractions, and with good reason. Sure, it’s best suited for people who have a more active lifestyle, but if you think you’ve got what it takes, then it’s definitely not one to miss.

 Go shopping

If retail therapy is more your thing after a few days in nature, there’s plenty of opportunity for you to go shopping in the city. You can find everything from high-end retail chains to local boutiques with hand-made goods on offer, and it’s the perfect way for you to find a few gifts to take home for friends and family or to grab a souvenir or two.

  Head off on a cruise

One great way to see Vancouver from a different point of view is to think about cruising to Vancouver to see it from the water. There are plenty of different cruising providers running services from all over the world, and even if you don’t plan to stay in Vancouver for long, it can be a great way to enter the country and to make yourself a base for your future adventures. You can even go on a whale watching cruise while you’re there.

Pack light

One final thing to mention is that if you’re planning on visiting Vancouver, you should pack light and only take the bare essentials in your carry on. You’re bound to want to bring back some souvenirs and some trinkets, so make sure that you leave enough space in your suitcase to fit them in so that you don’t have to spend a bunch of money posting it all home.

Now that you know just a few of your options when it comes to traveling to Vancouver, the next step is for you to start planning your trip and making reservations. Remember that the further ahead you make your bookings, the more money you can typically save. That makes Vancouver a great place to visit for a day or a weekend, and there’s never been a better time to get going.
