There is no better place for family fun and adventure than Vancouver, British Columbia. World renowned for its breathtaking natural setting, the city boasts more than 200 parks, a vibrant and diverse cultural, and doubles as a giant playground, poised on the Strait of Georgia. And summer is the perfect time to visit Vancouver. Explore Stanley Park by bike, a breathtaking oasis of old growth wilderness. Learn about marine conservation efforts at Canada's largest aquarium and sample some of the best Street Eats in North America on an exciting food safari.

• Sample smoked wild salmon, gourmet bison burgers and fiery diablo chocolate cookies while exploring the city's cultural neighborhoods.
• Observe Orca, "Killer" Whales in their natural habitat and learn about the diverse wildlife of the Pacific Coast on a discovery cruise through the Fraser River estuary and into the Strait of Georgia.
