Welcome to The Local Visitor!
Any tourist brochure can tell you Vancouver's most popular tourist destinations. Having grown up here, though, we have our own favourite places. With the increasing popularity of things like Airbnb, you may find yourself staying outside the downtown core, or without a friendly concierge to give you advice. This website allows you to figure out where to go regardless of where you're staying, and to transcend the limits of most tourists.
We divided this website in two ways: by neighbourhood and by type. Within each, you will find some of the places that you may not otherwise discover. We will be updating the website constantly, so check back often.
Vancouver is a very friendly and accessible city. If you pull out a map and look lost, chances are somebody will come to your rescue. Just remember: the mountains are North.
