Vancouver: English Bay

One thing you might not know about Vancouver is that we are close to many beaches and mountains. You can go skiing/hiking in the morning and go hit the beaches in the afternoon. Our geographic location allows you to do both in a day! You can bike along the seawall and enjoy our beaches as well. I like to go beach hopping with my kid. Our beaches are very close together and some days we go to 3 beaches in one day! Each beach has it’s own beauty. The secret about English Bay (First Beach) are the number of seashells that line the shores! If your kid loves digging and treasure hunting, you may be spending an entire day here! There are no playgrounds at this beach, but the closest one would be by Stanley Park which I will be discussing another time.
English Bay is located west of downtown along Beach Avenue. It is walking distance to certain parts of Stanley Park and Denman Street which is full of restaurants and shops.
