Just a few of my favorite places and how to get there. Also follow my adventures on Instagram.
How to get to the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada: Fly to Vancouver. Or in my case end an epic road trip around Washington State with you adventure besties and head north for a solo Canada trip. Take an Uber pool from the rental car return to the train station and, as fate has it, meet a new friend in the Uberpool who also happens to be going to Vancouver. Break it to her that we are actually taking the same Amtrak bus, even though she thought she had booked a train but sadly no, it is a bus. Bus to Canada, explore Vancouver and make plans to visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge the following day first thing in the morning at 8am. The night before, find out from the hostel how to take the bus to the bridge and get told that you are a crazy person for leaving the hostel so early in the morning. Leave the hostel at 7:20 am to walk to the bus stop, wait by the wrong bus stop until you realize it is on the other corner, read the sign and realize the first bus doesn't even come on Sundays until 8am so you won't get to the bridge until 8:30am not when it opens at 8am. Take the bus and make friends with a girl who works there and gets you into the park for free. Enter the park, stare at the beautiful bridge that you have been seeing pictures of for years and say to your new friends, “this is why we are here so early…” the bridge is empty. Take pictures with your friend and take hand holding pics of a very cute honeymoon couple on the bridge. Walk around the whole park, walk on little hanging bridges, visit baby ducklings at the pond, listen to a bird talk, and walk out on the cantilever bridge, Realize it is almost noon and now hundreds of people are on the bridge and this is why we came so early, to enjoy this magical place before the crowds. After the bridge take a very short bus ride to Grouse Mountain, enjoy the gondola ride, visit the Grizzly bear sanctuary, and watch the amusing lumberjack show. Enjoy Canada, British Columbia, and Vancouver.
