1. Wander the City
On cool, rainy days in Vancouver, seeking shelter is key. Explore the small art galleries of East Vancouver and Granville Island, or head for the Vancouver Art Gallery to see the bold, contemporary expression of an exhibit featuring American artist Cindy Sherman. Stay dry at The Shipyards District on Vancouver’s North Shore and skate under a 12,000 square-foot canopy before shopping Lonsdale Quay or sipping beer at Beere Brewing Company or House of Funk Brewing. Looking for comfort food? Head to Richmond and eat your way along on the Dumpling Trail. Sample steamy, chewy, tasty creations from top restaurants in this dumpling hot spot.
