    Just minutes from downtown Vancouver you’ll find the Capilano Suspension Bridge which is suspended 230 feet above the Capilano River and has several thrilling activities for you to do!

    Watch the exits from Canada Customs if u are connecting. Leave the wrong door (AC or WJ) and you're stuck outside security again!

    White Spot is roomy and even had an open port for powering my phone. All around the food court are plenty of outlets to recharge. Especially on a 5 hour layover.

    If you are just coming inti Vancouver and have an iPhone, you may like the free iPhone app 'Dirty Spoon!'. It reveals health region reviews for any place serving food in Vancouver.

    Air Canada domestic check in is a breeze. Self-tag your bag, they scan it, drop it on a conveyer belt. It seems like there's never any lineup.

    When in the priority lounge pay attention to changes about your flight as the loud speaker announcements does not reach the lounge. Missed my flight cause of that, after 4 delays!!!

    Long flight? Peanuts are okay, but bringing a filling, healthy snack like almonds or fruit will keep you tied over until your destination. For more travel tips and fun, follow @DoubleTree on Twitter!

    There's a secret tunnel for staff use, but if you're sneaky enough you'll be first in line at security using it!

    U.S. lounge doesn't have many healthy breakfast food options. Best bet: Starbucks oatmeal. Yes, really.

    NEXUS is your best friend here - US transborder customs in 5 minutes or less. Security in 3 minutes or less (you skip the entire line)
