Stanley Park has its own set of charms. We've explored the bike trails (the seawall, the dirt paths, and the actual roadways where the more-serious cyclists zip around). There are also beaches and cafes and a totem pole display, and this Inukshuk which is at the southern edge of the park. (this is where I run to, on the mornings that I go running).
They say that Vancouverites are healthier and happier than the rest of Canada, which they chalk up to more time outdoors - the weather here is much milder, winters are shorter and less brutal, and the opportunities for outdoor activities abound. Here in June, on the waterfront, it seems like everyone is running, cycling, rollerblading, kayaking, dragon boating, and stand-up paddleboarding. It's hard actually to coop myself up in the apartment to get anything done.
