What to wear?

by slyio76

Hi,
We can't find a proper shoes here at home to wear in Vancouver especially for my girl. If we just wear normal sport shoes with wool socks, is it sufficient? Thanks.

Re: What to wear?

by GrumpyDiver

This may sound silly, but age of girl and when you are planning to visit Vancouver would be useful. I assume she is young regarding your follow up questions regarding diapers, etc.

Winter can be quite rainy in Vancouver, so something waterproof boots make sense if your trip is imminent.

Re: What to wear?

She is coming to 2 years old then. We have no choice, it's a last minutes decision. Actually, we just gotten PR and this is our landing trip, returning after a week. I can only travel during that period as it is in my 2nd trimester. That's why we have to travel under such condition...

Re: What to wear?

by GrumpyDiver

I sort of expected your answer. I don't think a two-year old will be running around a lot on city streets, so casual sports shoes will be fine. Wool socks - perhaps something thinner and synthetic, rather than actual wool would be a lot easier to find.

Vancouver can be quite wet in the November through February time frame, so if you are looking at spending time outside (Stanley Park, for example) rain boots and splash pants (waterproof outer pants) would help keep your daughter a bit cleaner and dryer.

I wouldn't worry about it. Even if all she has at home is what we call flip flops, that's OK to fly over with. I guess if she has no shoes at all (and sometimes I didn't get mine any until they were walking) then you might get her some before you come but otherwise you could buy what you think is proper when you get there.

Re: What to wear?

by slyio76

Thanks a lot! I think I know what to prepare for her now. :)

I wear regular street shoes all year round. If it snows in Dec you'll need something waterproof, but that's what payless shoes on Granville St is for http://www.payless.com/store/

Travel Tips for Vancouver

TIP TOE THRU THE TULIPS

by travelgourmet

Vancouver in the spring is a breathe of fresh air. The city goes out of it's way to beautify the center of town. Little gardens line the walk-ways through the business sections and harbor areas of town . Tulips are in all their colors of the rainbow, and many assorted flowers fill the planters alongside doorways. It is not hard to bring back the memory of a clean, fresh air city with nature and man sharing the walkways.

Take a trip out and see the Rockies! It's absolutely breath-taking! Or take the ferry to Vancouver Island and go whale-watching! You'd be mostly cold, but the sight of a whale is really thrilling! I think the place was called Torino.

by marty99

Stanley Park has got to be tops on my list - great place to bike / walk / roller blade the sea wall - artists in the Spring and Summer - Great place for young and young at heart ! Attending the Shakespeare festival in Vanier Park...and I don't even like Shakespeare !!!

Chinese Cultural Center

by meteorologist1

The Chinese Cultural Center in Vancouver's Chinatown has a museum which presents the history of Chinese Canadians and traditional Chinese arts. It also has a museum dedicated to the Chinese military. This museum is located on 555 Columbia Street adjacent to the Dr.Sun Yat-Sen Park.

Kitsilano

by Carmanah

Kitsilano is Vancouver's cool and trendy beach-side community. Kitsilano is called "Kits" by the locals, and it's the neighbourhood where Vancouver's young people dream of moving to, where many students end up sharing apartments, where yuppies drink their tall, non-fat soy lates along the seawall, where 20-somethings play beach volleyball in the evening, where trendsetters stroll along West 4th Avenue and where skateboarders and snowboarders cruise all the local skate shops.

Of course, this is only one aspect to Kits. Kits is also quite wealthy, and some homes have cliff-side property with million dollar views. All the streets in Kits are lined with trees, and the homes all have front and back yards - ideal for when you want to live somewhere with a garden. Not to mention, the architecture in Kits is quite unique and isn't really found elsewhere in the city, or in the rest of Canada! Most homes have 3 levels including a balcony in the back and a front porch.

Kits Beach is very popular for people-watching. There are some really great pubs just across the street, or if caffeine is more your fancy, go to the local Starbucks. Sure, they're evil. But eveyone goes there nevertheless... and the irony is that Kits used to be home to Vancouver's hippies in the 1960's.

The boundary of Kits could be said to be between Burrard Street to the east and Macdonald to the west, from 16th Ave to the south, all the way north to Kits beach, however, West 4th and Yew is definitely the heart of Kitsilano - a major shopping area with great cafes, grocery stores and restaurants.

Whether you're wanting to shop at the boutiques or eat at the many great restaurants along West 4th or Broadway, or whether you just want to stroll the beach, Kits is a really fun neighbouhood to explore.
