Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia. It’s a fun outing, especially for kids. Be advised, however, that you should arrive early if you wish to walk the bridges and through the forested sides of Capilano Gorge in peace. For once the tour buses arrive — and arrive they will — the place becomes inundated with people and its appeal lessens considerably. We got there shortly after it opened and enjoyed it greatly for about an hour before we noticed the tour bus crowds arriving.
