There is no question that Vancouver is an expensive city, but what many people may not know is that there are many things one can do in the lower mainland that are free. What this means is that you need to do your homework before you get here. Many people fall into the tourist trap and end up seeing things or going to events that cost a lot of money. But with careful planning, one can have a wonderful time in this beautiful city at no cost. From seeing some of the best scenery to gorgeous trails and beautiful gardens, this city allows you to enjoy both the outdoors and indoors at almost no expense. From your hotel, all you need is an SUV Limousine to take you to your destination.
An icon of the city is Stanley park- this all year round park is where you can spend endless hours walking, biking, hiking or just watching people go by. The park also has places where you can have a barbecue or a picnic. And best of all the scenery is majestic- so do not forget your camera.
Vancouver has many bridges but two which should not be missed are the suspension bridge and the Lynn Canyon parks. Both are free and at both these sites, you will get to enjoy nature at its very best. There are places to hike and from the top of the hills, you can get some excellent views of the water. To get here, all you need is a ride with Royal Limo Vancouver.
If you want to experience the culture, just hop in at the Vancouver Art Gallery, where every Tuesday, admission is free but you are welcome to make a donation. The Vancouver art gallery houses some of the finest pieces of native artwork and the great thing is that every few months, the artwork is changed- so you get a new experience each time. And once you are done with the Gallery, there are many boutique coffee and dessert shops within walking distance.
If you are science-minded then go visit the HR MacMillan Space Center which features state of art learning and interactive exhibits for people of all ages. Everything about the cosmos and the solar system is explained in fun and exciting detail.
Finally, if you want to experience Vancouver like the locals, visit Granville Island. The place is home to many restaurants, theaters, a hotel, local artisans and some of the best produce in the lower mainland. Just walk through the market and you will get a chance to smell the brew of fresh coffee and get a chance to taste the local desserts and baked pies. Granville Island has something for everyone and it has no entrance fee. To get here, just call Royal Limo Vancouver.
