Check out the colourful float homes at Fisherman’s Wharf decked out with fabulous art, window boxes and hanging baskets (even mariners have gardens here). Get a kick out of feeding the harbour seals, slurp local oysters or head out on eco-tours launching from the docks.
Those in the know cross the street to the Finest at Sea food cart that serves up super fresh fish tacos and friendly banter while you wait. The seafood is sustainable and the smoked fish is prepped on site.
Royal BC Museum + IMAX®
If you’re looking for knock-your-socks-off events and exhibitions, beat a path to Royal BC Museum. It’s not just for visitors; locals can’t get enough either. There’s a reason why TripAdvisor reviewers have named it the best museum in Canada for two years running.
Don’t miss Our Living Languages: First Peoples’ Voices in British Columbia (to June 2017) and larger-than life Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age (June 3 to Dec. 31, 2016). Sink into your seat for the latest IMAX flick.
When you’ve worked up a hunger, follow your nose to the new food truck festival in the courtyard behind the museum. The clever décor is made from upcycled materials and the local vendors dish up delectable fare and cold craft brews.
