Unpack, take a deep breath, then let the sightseeing begin. The people-pleasing mix here includes walking tours, shopping, art galleries, horse-drawn carriage rides, and a fantastic range of dining options. The focal point downtown is the Inner Harbour, lined with historic stone buildings (including the BC legislature, which at night lights up like a palace with over 3,000 lights) and buzzing with floatplanes, boats, passenger ferries, and whale-watching zodiacs. Stroll with the ducks and peacocks in Beacon Hill Park before stopping at the children’s farm to mingle with the goats and sheep.
