    One of my favourite spots in Vancouver to hangout on a beautiful day. Watch live entertainment outdoors, feed the seagulls, get some espresso and a pastry from Terra Breads. Smell the sea water!

    Skip the restaurants for lunch. Head to the public market, which features food as diverse as Vancouver. Grab a table or bench on the dock and enjoy.
