Stanley Park in Vancouver

In the heart of Vancouver’s metropolis lies a 1,000-acre rainforest teeming with wildlife and natural beauty. On a three-day cruise from Los Angeles or Pacific Coastal Getaways from San Francisco, discover hidden gems tucked inside the city’s park — like the aquarium and Totem Pole Park. Or hike the trails, bike along the seawall path or cross the Lynn Suspension Bridge for unparalleled views of the forest.
