Vancouver's Aquarium

ONE OF SPUD'S FAVOURITE MUSEUMS | VANCOUVER


SO MANY EXHIBITS, SO LITTLE TIME
This last trip to the Aquarium we barely even found the time to see the otters, the dolphin show, or the baby beluga! There's so much to take in.




The interactive kids area is great fun.


Here Dr. Spud is carefully examining a harbour seal [stuffed of course].


OTHER STUFF TO CHECK OUT
Within a 10 minute walk you'll also find a water park [in the warm months], a Children's Farm (604 257 8530) and the Miniature Railway (604 257 8531) on which you can ride through the woods [all year round].

LUNCH / DINNER
The obvious choice is to hit one of the many concession stands in the park itself. This can be expensive and of terribly average quality, however. For a proper sit down meal, the Banana Leaf on Denman Street serves delicious Malaysian food. But there's no end of good food on Denman. There's a unique, fantastic sweet and savoury fillo pastry bar, Greek, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Japanese cuisine, 2 very good hamburger joints, gelato and cupcakes. And a cafĂ© every 10–15 feet.

Wow, check out that line up. It's best to show up before noon.
