Many ESL students come to Vancouver to learn English for a number of reasons. The scenery is beautiful, the climate is mild, there are great ethnic restaurants, and there are many things to do to keep busy.
ESL students and tourists often ask me, “What should I do while I’m in Vancouver?”
The city of Vancouver looks to answer this question by providing a comprehensive guide full of Top 5 lists in various categories.
I usually answer tourists and my students by giving them a few options. Keep checking ESLroom.com for updates, as I make my own Top 5 List of things to do in Vancouver.
1. Explore the Seawall on a bike, rollerblades, or your feet!
When most people think Seawall in Vancouver, they think of the Seawall surrounding the perimeter of Stanley Park. However, what many people don’t realize is that the route continues along the beach of English Bay and over the Burrard Street Bridge! The route then continues along the seawall separating downtown Vancouver from mainland Vancouver. The Stanley Park loop is approximately 9 km while the inner Seawall is about 12 km.
There are many bike and rollerblade rental shops on Denman Street, near Robson Street. Bikes can be rented for as low as $4.75 per hour.
