Vancouver in a weekend...

I'm planning a 2 day trip to Vancouver at the end of the month -- never been to Canada before.....what are some of the must-see places and must-do things?

Go shop on Granville Island and have dinner at one of the nice restaurants. Take a walk in Gastown and have a pint at the Irish Heather pub. If there is not too much fog, go to the top of Grouse Mountain. The view is great.

Too bad you are not going in the summer, Stanley park is gorgeous on a sunny day.

I posted this in the last Vancouver thread. It's a picture I took while visiting there. Consider it a second vote to Pressplay's recommendation for Stanley Park.

If you are into beer, you could also tour the Granville Island Brewery. It's a short visit, but you get to taste 4 of their delicious beers and get a souvenir glass afterwards. It costs CAN$9.75.

It's a nice city, but avoid parts of the East Downtown area.

Stanley park is nice though and Robson is suppose to be one of the trending parts of downtown....but I don't think so.

You could hook-up with one of my ex-girlfriends. She now lives in Vancouver and she's a slut.
