A Mini Guide to Visiting Vancouver

To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, I've partnered with Le Chateau for a  Q&A on  some of my favorite things to do, see and eat in Vancouver! Read on for a guide on visiting one of the best cities in the world =). 

1. Name a hidden gem within your city.
The pink and yellow painted alley south of West Hastings between Seymour and Granville. Stop by for a photo-op, grab a coffee from the corner shop and lounge, or shoot some friendly hoops with locals. Click here to see a photoshoot I did in this fun and bright alleyway!

2.  If you were to provide a daily travel schedule for city newcomers, what places would it include and why?

I’m a bit of a foodie so you may find a common theme with a good portion of my suggestions =). 
  • Start the day with brunch at Chambar because they have the best chocolate covered waffles or enjoy a morning coffee and croissant at Dalina’s if you’re on the go!

  • Bike the Seawall and/or take a walk through Stanley Park for a stunning view of the waterside.
  • Visit Granville Island and grab a bite to eat or pick up some specialty goods in the market. You also have a fabulous view of the Granville Street Bridge from the dock! 
  • Take the water Taxi from Granville Island to Coal harbour for a view of the city from a different perspective. 
  • If you’re still hungry, visit my ultimate favourite restaurant in the city, Tableau for a fresh take on French cuisine. They serve the best steak and fries and creme brûlée! 
  • End the evening with drinks at Reflections, a roof top patio at the Hotel Georgia to unwind and discuss all the fun you had exploring the city that day. 

3. Where is the ultimate spot to take a photo for a social media post?
If you take the Seabus to the Lonsdale Quay, you can take a photo with the Vancouver city skyline in the distance. The Seabus ride is also a fun adventure in itself! Check out the view here! 

4. Where do you find style inspiration within your city?. 
Other local Vancouver bloggers, Vancouver Fashion Week and street style from locals. 

5. What is the most buzz-worthy new hot spot? 
Botanist just opened at the Fairmont in Vancouver and I’ve been dying to give it a try. It’s one of Vancouver’s newest restaurants and it’s dressed with over 50 types of plants and they have a bread shop in the middle of the restaurant!

6. Name the most unique location for date night within your city.
A trip to the beautiful Vancouver Art Gallery followed by dinner at Black and Blue’s rooftop restaurant. 

7. What does being being Canadian mean to you?
Being a Canadian means having the freedom to pursue my dreams in a country that offers unlimited opportunities.

  30. Great outfits and suggestions. I still haven't been to Vancouver. Everytime I saw a flight on sale to Vancouver, it was cheaper to fly out of Canada and go to London or Paris, so I always left the country, but my husband and I plan on going over the next couple of years, so will have to check this post out when I go. :) I'm always looking for the local's suggestions for good food and spots! Thanks for sharing!
