Walk down Commercial Drive and you'll find wonderful coffee shops that serve a good java. We've been coming here since our kids were babies. Close to a school playground and park. We like it here. And they provide outlets to charge your laptop (very handy)!

Way back in the day this used to be a mom/pop pho noodles place. I used to come here for many years. Delicious pho and other Vietnamese dishes. Now the place is taken over by their children and they’ve added a hip/cooler vibe to the place without sacrificing the quality of the food. Open lunch and dinner.

One of the freshest sushi restaurants in Vancouver. Doors open at 5 pm so get there before lineup starts. I don’t think they take reservations. It can get crowded so maybe not so great with little kids. But there are other good sushi restaurants around the area that are kid friendlier.

Historic Gastown. Steam clock, shopping, cafes and restaurants. There are underground (you need to pay) parkades. But I’d take skytrain and not worry about parking. Must visit in Vancouver!

Top first time in Vancouver to-do-list! But it is pricey. There is a small parking lot which is paid and can fill up quickly. There is a free shuttle from Canada place every 10 min. If you take the day pass (called the compass ticket) on the public transport service you can use the public transport system. The day pass costs Can$ 10 and can be used on sky train, buses, trans and sea bus routes. For a tourist this is the best deal! Or visit Lynn Canyon, there’s a suspension bridge there and it’s free. Locals tend to go here instead.
