Default Kofi Annan in: "You Can't Spell 'Annan' Without Vancouver!"

Hey!

Kofi and family will be in Vancouver from tomorrow through Thursday! Anyone from the area with any advice on what to hit while we're there?

Any place a diyAudio guy should know about?

Thanks!
Kofi

Nothing audio related, others with more knowledge will have to provide that. However, from a touristy standpoint, the UBC Museum of Anthropology - University of British Columbia is worth a look - great examples of early aboriginal culture. I don't know about this time of year, but the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in China town is interesting (Vancouver has, I believe, the second largest China town in North America, so depending on where you're from that may, or may not, be of interest. Plus, great places down there for dim sum. Oh, and always, Stanley Park.

Just a short drive south to the US in Bellingham, WA visit the SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention. The kids will enjoy it too, check out the video clip on their web site:

+1 on Stanley Park.
Vancouver Aquarium (go early - preferably arrive when they open).
Looks like the Canucks are in town...

Would the Lounge be better than Tubes?

Moved.

Here's some of the better known ones. There's lots to do here if you're an outdoor kinda person. Too bad about the weather though.

10 Vancouver Must-See Attractions

Other than audio, what do you like to do?

There is S.P.A.R.C. (Socitey for the Preservation of Antique Radio in Canada) in Coquitlam (the old Essendale site) 604-777-1885, www3.telus.net/radiomuseum/

The Radiomuseum in Bellingham WA is a must see!

If you have the time and a car go up to Cypress mountain and enjoy the view from the 1st. and 2nd. lookouts. On a good day you can see the new Port Mann bridge, Mount Baker, Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island. Than continue on to Horseshoe Bay and up Howe Sound! At night take the gondola up to Grouse Mountain for a drink or dinner and enjoy a spectacular view of the city (Fantastic!!!, to quote a well known local).

Enjoy Vancouver! E
