Vancouver, BC Factoid
Take a hike. Go fly a kite. Or ice skate, ski, take a helicopter tour, or see a lumberjack show. No matter what time of year it is, Grouse Mountain, a quick 15-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, has something fun to do. Take a trip to the top of the "Peak of Vancouver" in the Skyride, North America's largest aerial tramway system. At the summit, you'll also find restaurants, shops, and a wildlife refuge and conservation center.
