Vancouver, BC Excursion: Gastown, Stanley Park, Granville Island, Chinatown, English Bay

It’s been a year since I’ve traveled to Vancouver, British Columbia Canada (not to be confused with Vancouver, WA). I had fond memories last time with my friend Julia and our delightful chauffeur AKA Julia’s mom. My BFF Angela came to town this year for her birthday so we made sure to coordinate a trip to Vancouver on her first trip to the PNW. And guess who came too? My wonderful partner聽Monkeytrash. We also hung out with my friends Jordan and Paul who were delightful tour guides!

We took the Bolt Bus to Vancouver. The total trip was approximately 3.5 hours with a stop in Bellingham, WA. We ate and saw everything we could in a span of 2 days. I came back with a sinus infection (allergies?), but it was all well worth it!

First stop…DUTY FREE! This duty free is much closer when going through the Canadian border than heading back to the US. Get your goods here!
