Like the name says: just braised or slow-roasted meats, served on ciabatta buns. They are known for their hand-carved porchetta, but I order the daily special—that is, if I can get there before 2 p.m. The restaurant is first come, first served, so...

Vancouver, BC V6G 1Z4, Canada
Vancouver’s most famous urban space, the thousand-acre Stanley Park, epitomizes everything that locals here love about the outdoors, and visitors have many ways to explore the expansive grounds. Hiking trails weave around totem poles and hemlock...

Vancouver, BC V6G 3E2, Canada
The Vancouver Seawall is the most popular recreation location in the entire city, if not in all of Canada, and it's for good reason. This stunning 22-km long trail leads from downtown along the shoreline of Stanley Park and offers some of the most...

In my opinion the Aquabus is Vancouver's most fun mode of transportation and if you've taken a ride I'm sure you'll agree. The Aquabus is a mini ferry that taxis around False Creek, an inlet just south of downtown. It is popularly used to get to...

3663 Park Rd, North Vancouver, BC V7J 3G3, Canada
The Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, in northern Vancouver, is one of Lynn Valley's best-kept secrets. The 50 meter high bridge stretches across a beautiful canyon with waterfalls and deep pools below. The best part is, it's free of charge. Crossing...

Vancouver has two really fabulous outdoor, public, beachside swimming pools, which are great places to cool off in the summer. I love Second Beach Pool in Stanley Park becuase of the views of English Bay and all the kids it attracts. The pool is...

Kitsilano Beach, Vancouver, BC, Canada
A popular hangout, Kits Beach—as the locals call it—faces English Bay, and in the summertime it buzzes with beach activities. Volleyball players and Frisbee tossers mingle with sun worshippers, windsurfers and skim boarders. For sand-free dips and...

Gastown, Vancouver, BC, Canada
The Gastown neighborhood dates back to the Victorian era when “Gassy Jack” Deighton opened a saloon in a burgeoning sawmilling settlement. Now its grand heritage buildings—in Romanesque, Edwardian and Victorian Italianate styles—and brick-paved...

Celebrity chefs Vikram Vij and Meeru Dhalwala serve brightly spiced dishes at their flagship restaurant—often hailed as one of the world’s finest for Indian food. Their wine-marinated lamb popsicles are legendary, but their menu has other...

Went out one day with my cousin in the middle of the week with a couple of his friends. We grabbed some sushi and drinks and made our way to the lake with the dog riding in the back. Surrounded by a plethora of pine trees, we just relaxed and...

123 Carrie Cates Ct, North Vancouver, BC V7M 3K7, Canada
When in Vancouver, one must take the classic trip across the Burrard Inlet, by Seabus, to Lonsdale Quay. Not only is the food at Lonsdale Quay delicious, there are many cute shops, and the view, as you can see, just can't be beat. Climb up the...

6400 Nancy Greene Way, North Vancouver, BC V7R 4K9, Canada
Part of the North Shore mountain range, this 4,039-foot peak offers jaw-dropping views of the city. It’s busiest in the winter, when four chairlifts service 33 ski runs, but remains popular in the summer thanks to the steep, 1.8-mile Grouse...

3735 Capilano Rd, North Vancouver, BC V7R 4J1, Canada
When thinking of Capilano, most people think of the suspension bridge. Now don't get me wrong, the bridge is fantastic, however if you want a longer (and free) experience of the Capilano River, just hike through the municipal park! There's a...

This 27-acre attraction in North Vancouver gets the heart racing with a suspension bridge that bounces 230 feet above a forested river gorge. Even more spectacular, however, is the Cliffwalk, a labyrinth of walkways along the granite flank of...

Lummi Island, WA 98262, USA
On Lummi Island, about three hours from Seattle, you can bike miles of farm roads, search for an ancient Native American petroglyph on Sunset Beach, and take a “wild foraging-and-feasting” sea kayaking trip with Elakah Expeditions to prowl the...

The hike to Garibaldi Lake requires an immediate commitment thanks to the strenuous, several mile (and a couple thousand feet) uphill climb before you get to a more leisurely route. The views of the lake and the surrounding mountains were more...

Orcas Island, Washington, USA
We left Seattle twenty years ago for the emphatically non-greener pastures of Chicago. It took twenty years to go back. You can do things twenty years later you couldn't before. As newlyweds impoverished by graduate school, we never got around...

I shouldn't eat ice cream, yet I do. Being lactose intolerant, naturally I was born addicted to ice cream, sorbet, and gelato. I will be bold and say that it is the best gelato in Vancouver if not the country. After all, the owner went to school...

Yamato Sushi doesn't have a big space but if you're looking for one of the best cheap eats in Vancouver, it's worth it. You may have to wait, but it won’t be for long. The value here was phenomenal: over nineteen rolls plus gyoza and green tea...

Japadog is one of those odd and wacky combinations of a hot dog with Japanese toppings, but it works! I had the Terimayo, a teriyaki-drenched dog topped with seaweed. Not substantial for the $5 price tag, but a good snack. The location on Robson...
