Ferguson Point & Third Beach

“Ferguson Point is an elevated point on the west side of Stanley Park.  It offers magnificent views west towards the ocean!” – Stanley Park Van

“Located at Ferguson Point in Stanley Park, Third Beach is a naturally sandy beach surrounded by trees that shield dippers and tanners from urban noise.” – City of Vancouver

Carisbrooke Park

The Sylvia Hotel

“The Sylvia Hotel is a designated heritage building, ideally located on English Bay, beside Stanley Park and just 5 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Built in 1912, the Sylvia Hotel is a city landmark and one of Vancouver’s greatest treasures. The Sylvia Hotel is definitely one of Vancouver’s best kept secrets. The old fashioned character and friendly service gives travelers a home away from home.” – The Sylvia Hotel

Helicopter – Widgeon Mountain Range

“Saying “I do” on the top of a mountain – it doesn’t get much more romantic than that! So it’s no wonder that our Helicopter Elopement & Photography Package is one of our most popular. Not everyone can say they got married on a snowcapped mountaintop with a beautiful landscape behind them. It truly is a once in a lifetime experience!” – Helicopter Elopement FAQs

Lighthouse Park

“Lighthouse Park located in West Vancouver British Columbia is one of the most amazing scenic parks you will see on the West Coast. Walk through acres of first-growth douglas firs and stand next to trees that are considered to be giants.” – Lighthouse Park



Golden Ears Park

“As one of the largest parks in the province, Golden Ears Provincial Park is prized for its recreational opportunities. The extensive system of trails within the park provides an excellent opportunity for hiking and horseback riding. Alouette Lake is a popular spot for swimming, windsurfing, water-skiing, canoeing, boating and fishing. The park also has three large campgrounds. Vegetation is typical of the coastal western Hemlock forest of B.C. and the mountainous backcountry is extremely rugged.” – BC Parks

OPUS Hotel

“OPUS Hotel offers the ultimate experience where design meets impeccable service. Boutique Hotel means amazing service, high-style suites and iconic experiences. The discerning traveler will fall in love with fabrics and bright, vibrant colours and expression of personality throughout.” – Opus Hotel


Granville Island

“The Island is a jewel in the Canadian government’s development crown but it’s just as treasured by locals and tourists for its unique offerings. Granville Island, itself a piece of art and a destination for more than 10 million people who visit the Island annually, provides a rare example of government as an urban redevelopment standard-setter, creative marketer, and manager in one complete package.” – Granville Island
