Ways to Beat the Crowds in Vancouver

Ways to Beat the Crowds in Vancouver

Due to its growing population and the rising tide of tourists, Vancouverc can get busy, particularly in summer. From prebooked tickets to out-of-town escapes, here are some easy ways to combat the crowds. 

Plan Ahead

Prebooking popular attractions can save you time and money. Avoid waiting in long ticket lines by purchasing skip-the-line admission tickets for the Vancouver Aquarium, Vancouver Lookout, Capilano Suspension Bridge, and Grouse Mountain.

Take to the Skies

When the city streets are too busy to bear, opt for a sky-high sightseeing tour instead. Soar above the sidewalks of downtown in a seaplane or swoop across the Strait of Georgia to Victoria on Vancouver Island, and avoid the jam-packed summer ferries while you’re at it. 

Embrace the Weather

When it rains in Vancouver, most travelers avoid outdoor sights. But if you’re willing to don a rain jacket and grab an umbrella, you’ll have top Vancouver attractions all to yourself. Top picks include Gastown and the Stanley Park Seawall, but if you’d prefer a day indoors, head to Science World, Flyover Canada, and the Bloedel Conservatory at Queen Elizabeth Park.

Get Out of Town

Sparsely-populated wilderness is within easy reach of the Vancouver. Excursions along the Sea to Sky Highway offer lots of potential stop-offs. For a more off-the-beaten path escape, venture to the bucolic Fraser Valley wine country, where you can enjoy tasting sessions at boutique wineries.
