- The Suspension Bridge is 250 feet above the Capilano River and it stretches a whopping 450 feet. It has been crossed by millions of people since 1889.
- Cliffwalk is a series of suspended cliffside bridges, platforms and stairs and provides a nice view of the Capilano River. It will definitely get your adrenaline pumping.
- Treetops Adventure is a series of viewing platforms and 7 suspension bridges that take you deep into the rain forest and the 1300 year old trees. It’s quiet and gorgeous and really makes you feel a part of nature.
- Story Center and Totem Park have murals and artifacts chronicling the history of the Bridge and Vancouver, complete with original colorful totem poles from the 1930’s.
- Holiday ‘Canyon Lights’ is a winter celebration of light. From November 30th 2013 until January 4th 2014, the entire park and bridges are covered with magical twinkle lights and the celebration includes live music, glass ornament blowing and gingerbread cookie decorating.
The Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge is an alternate option; it's another suspension bridge in North Vancouver (a 15 minute drive from Capilano), but this one is free. It's shorter and lower than the Capilano Suspension Bridge and there is no cliff walk, but it's certainly a money-saving option and usually less visitors.
Vancouver is a more expensive city than most, but one of the best hotels you'll find is the Sylvia Hotel. Located in a 1912 designated heritage building just next door to Stanley Park, it has gorgeous views of the English Bay. Compare their direct booking rate vs Expedia to find the best deal.
Alternatively, B&Bs are perfect for couples and solo travelers. Both the Thistle Down House B&B in Capilano and the West End Guest House near downtown come very highly recommended and are cheaper than hotels in the city (with breakfast!).
