Destination Guide: Vancouver

The golf season in Vancouver typically runs April through October.

The city, however, never takes a day off.

Set between the Pacific Ocean and coastal mountains, Vancouver is the third-largest city in Canada -- and there's no shortage of things to do and see.

It all starts downtown at Stanley Park (which is open year round). Located on the west end of Georgia Street, it's home to forests, beautiful gardens, hiking trails and the Vancouver Aquarium (which has more than 60,000 creatures).

You can spend an entire day shopping on Robson Street, which is filled with trendy shops, fashion boutiques, bars and cafes. Head to Theatre Row for your concert and movie fix.

Historic Gastown, with its cobbled streets and historic buildings, is also a must-see. So is Chinatown, with its fine seafood, amazing culture and shops. Granville Island (theatres), Kitsilano (beaches and mountain views) and Point Grey (host of the annual Vancouver Folk Festival) are also places to check out.

About a 20-minute walk from downtown is Canada Place. Walk along the pier or watch the ships head out to sea. It's an amazing experience.

When it's time for a golf experience, there are several courses to choose from within a 45-minute drive of Vancouver -- and many are open year round, too. Morgan Creek Golf Course and Fraserview Golf Course are among the best plays, and they are both open year round.

Just make sure to leave plenty of time after your round. There are plenty of other things to do and see in Vancouver.
