Ten green things

As you know, we love our lists here at GayVancouver.Net (Gay Vancouver Online).  Last month it was Ten Lavish Things to Do in Vancouver. This month we get on the Green City bandwagon with ten green things to do in Vancouver courtesy of Tourism Vancouver…

  1. ZiplineRent a bike or a pair of rollerblades and marvel at Vancouver’s green, urban sanctuary by cruising around the seawall in Stanley Park.
  2. Check out the view of the city from the water by kayaking your way along the waters of False Creek
  3. Get a birds-eye-view from above by ziplining at 80km/hr across mountain peaks.
  4. Enjoy the vast choices in fresh, West Coast seafood responsibly by choosing a restaurant participating in the Ocean Wise program.
  5. Book a tour with Edible BC and learn why Vancouverites “eat local”.
  6. Spend the night at a local hotel that has made “green” progress (such as the Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver or the Listel Hotel).
  7. Take a guided tour of North Vancouver’s mountain, forest and seascape region in a green vehicle fueled by vegetable oil.
  8. Take a walk on Vancouver’s new aerial trail system at the UBC Botanical Garden and learn about local ecology, nature, and conservation.
  9. Get a day pass from Translink and bus, SkyTrain or SeaBus your way around Vancouver.
  10. Understand what makes Vancouver a top “green city” by touring its state-of-the-art LEED gold grade buildings including the new convention centre, the Vancouver Aquarium’s Aquaquest building, and the Olympic legacy venues.
