Bike through Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia

Don't visit Vancouver without spending some time in one of the city's most beloved parks. It's a rite of passage in Vancouver to walk, run or cycle around the 6.5-mile seawall in Stanley Park, one of the most popular and scenic routes in the city. If you're seeking significant physical activity, rent a bike from Bayshore Bicycle Rentals (all rentals include complimentary helmets), located at Georgia and Denman Streets near the entrance to the park and wheel along one of the designated bicycle paths civilly separated from the park's walking paths.

Watch seaplanes taking off and landing in Burrard Inlet, stop and smell the rose gardens, brace yourself for the Nine O'clock Gun, shout out at Hallelujah Point and gulp great breaths of cedar-scented air. Surrounded by water on all sides, Stanley Park provides excellent sightseeing and people watching with every workout. Bird watchers also flock to the park during spring and fall to see large numbers of migrating ducks, Canada geese, blue herons and other waterfowl. It's also the spot for strolling, canoodling and watching incoming boats, ships and the sparkling lights of the city. To escape the crowds, venture off the pavement onto easy hiking and walking trails inside the park's core.
