Family-Friendly Travel Destinations
Stuck in a vacation rut? Go somewhere that's fun for the whole family―yes, even you.
Vancouver is a buzzing, cosmopolitan city with modern architecture and many ethnic neighborhoods that parents will appreciate. But there are also lots of parks and activities for kids. The city is surrounded by water, so kids can get a kick out of riding ferries everywhere. Take a ferry to Granville Island in the bay, just off downtown. The Kids Market, located in an old factory on Granville Island, has toy stores, a water park next door, and plenty to entertain all ages.
Where to stay: The Granville Island Hotel, near the Kids Market (granvilleislandhotel.com).
