the surrounding mountains during the winter. While its coastal location brings a milder climate even during the middle of winter, the surrounding mountains are a haven for winter sports and even played host to the 2010 Winter Olympics.
The surrounding areas have several well-known vantage points including the Capilano Suspension Bridge, a 140-meter bridge that stretches 70 meters above the canyon and river, and Grouse Mountain, which is accessible by gondola for ice skating, snowshoeing, dining, hiking, and spectacular night-time views of Vancouver.
Terrific Local Culture
A Vancouver timeshare means you can vacation your way, with fun daytime and nighttime activities. Local breweries and pubs are a common sight along its streets, along with fresh seafood and even cafes where you can sit down to afternoon tea. Granville Street and Yaletown offer a hip, funky nightclub vibe for anyone wanting a more upbeat experience and during the summer months, you can stretch a blanket out in Stanley Park for the Theatre Under the Stars. At English Bay, fireworks set to music are launched to crowds of thousands for a few special nights every summer, and worth watching as often as possible.
If you've brought the kids along for a summer holiday in a Vancouver timeshare, then you'll want to take a tour of some of the biggest family attractions in the area. Stanley Park is a good place to begin. In addition to the nightly programs, you can tour the seawall walkway from end to end, visiting the totem poles at Brockton Point and get a closer view of sea life at Vancouver Aquarium. At the beaches, kids can see the ships and sailboats out on the water and play in the sand while the parents relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Chinatown is another popular district, especially during the Chinese New Year celebrations.
When to Travel Here
The slowest months for tourism tend to be from late fall through early winter when the summer activities end but before the heavier snowfall of January and February bring in the downhill enthusiasts. However, the busiest time of year is still in the summer from June through August, when the warm weather travelers come for activities both on and off the water.
If you are looking for deals on a Vancouver timeshare, you can also find some during the shoulder season, from April through May, and again in September. The cooler spring and fall months are ideal for some of the more challenging hikes, mountain bike rides, and other outdoor activities.
