canda day

by timewaster

I am planning to come to vancouver during july 4 weekend and will be arriving July 2. Just noticed Canada day is July 1. will there be any Canada day events taking place that weekend or is everything finished on July 1?

Also, i am trying to get an idea of the distances. How long would it take to walk from canada place to Granville Island?

Re: canda day

by GrumpyDiver

Canada day is July 1. Period.

I've driven along there many times, but have walked most, but not walked all the way. A good 45 minutes would be my guess. I'm sure some of the Vancouver VTers will clarify.

From Canada Place to Granville Island is a enjoyable walk. Walk South on Granville St. which is also Granville Mall, across the Granville Bridge, you can see the Island from the bridge. Once across the bridge turn back on the surface streets and walk under the bridge onto the island. Depending on fast you walk you can do it in 30 to 45 minutes, probably 45 minutes is a better estimate. Also if you want you can take a bus on the mall, any bus exept the #6 will take you across the bridge, the number 50 will take you as close as public transit will go to the island. As of this moment the buses are not running on the mall due to reconstruction, however by summer they will be back on the mall. As for events on Canada Day, July 1, most take place at and around Canada Place.

July 1st is a Thursday. Everything happens on that day. The federal government funding for Canada day celebrations must be used on that day. Thursday will be a stat holiday, Friday is a workday for most.

July 1 is the party day and July 2 is the day to nurse your hangover. July 2, being a Friday, will more than likely result in a long weekend party frenzy about town.

Walking from Canada place to Granville Island will take a bit more than an hour. Why? Because you have to cross a bridge, which you cannot get off until you are several blocks past G Island, which will result in having to double back on your route. It's a pleasant walk though. You can cut about 25 minutes off the walk if you take the water taxi from under the Burrard bridge (aquatic centre)across False Creek directly to G Island.

Granville Island ferry is a total rip-off price wise. The price is very high and certainly not worth the 5 or 6 minute boat ride. I can also guarantee you it won't take you on hour to walk to the island unless you are on crutches or in a wheel chair. Also by walking across the bridge you will get a beautiful view of the false creek area and of the city.

not to be contradictory but i did that walk. it was longer than i thought it would be. its quick to get to the granville bridge but you have to walk way past granville island and backtrack to get to the island. check it out on google maps. we ended up taking the water taxi back. i think it was $5 or something like that.

Re: canda day

by yvr

Actually one walks about 4 blocks past Granville island, before walking back to get on the island, not way past.

Yeah, everything will be finished July 1st. Vancouver doesn't really celebrate Canada day anyway...nothing compared to other provinces. Check out:

Travel Tips for Vancouver

Grouse Mountain bears

by el_ruso

The main attraction on the Grouse Mountain, aside from the views, are the two Grizzly bears. They are very friendly, and it appears that they have been trained to stand up for cameras. If you come here with kids, this is a must see. Even if you are not here with kids, it is a must see, and one of the most memorable encounters in Vancouver. There is also a wolfs' den nearby.

Go Blueberry picking in the summer. When I was a small boy, I loved the blackberries,not the spiders or prickles, I liked running around in bare feet under sprinklers, not mowing the lawn, I loved fishing off the docks in Steveston with my friends, I loved making money and playing with my friends on the blueberry field. I have many beautiful memories in Steveston (part of Richmond, Just across the river from Vancouver.

by highd

walk through Stanley Park - although I didn't enjoy it very much, it's like 3 big highways: one for walking, one for biking, and one for roller-blading !! 1th of July is Canada-Day. Exactly on this day (out trip lastet 20 days, started in New York and ended in Seattle) we were in Vancouver. Up to this day we have crossed Canada and have not yet seen a Mountie in his red uniform.
In Vancouver I saw the first one, and guess what he was doing? Being photo-model all the day - smiling when being photographed with all the tourists. One of the tourists was me!

Go to Stanley Park: the beautiful green heart of the city.

World Famous Fish and Chips

by meteorologist1

It wasn't when I got to Vancouver that I discovered that they claim to have "world famous" fish and chips. You can see a lot of restaurants as well as concession stands selling fish and chips everywhere you go. I didn't try them though. Should have I? (This picture shows a concession stand in Stanley Park selling fish and chips.)
