Vancouver Aquarium a Delight for Adults and Kids

| February 2, 2023


Vancouver Aquarium

There is never any harm done or shame in feeling like a kid again no matter how old one gets. Do you recall that thrill you got last time you did something spontaneous with another adult or a child that made you feel all giggly and happy like the little kid you were?

If you did then it’s awesome. If can’t recall such a moment in life, you definitely need to get out more!

It was that exact feeling of feeling innocence and joy like a child that I felt at the Vancouver Aquarium.

It is located in Stanley Park in Vancouver. The park itself is another delight that one should experience on any visit to this city. [I have not covered the park specifically on my blog as I leave it to the readers to discover that enchanting place. However, a photo gallery of the park is at the end of this post]

The aquarium recently underwent a major expansion (The Big Reveal) that has opened as of this publication date. Check out the new additions post expansion.

While one can spend hours or a whole day going through the space (they even do sleepovers!), for those short on time I recommend setting aside a minimum hour and half in here so that you can catch at least one of the live aqua demonstrations. Combine this with your visit to Stanley Park.

While at the Vancouver Aquarium, do stop by their Gift Shop. Assuming that the brewer is the same from the time that I paid a visit, the coffee in there is THE BEST EVER! Do try it and let me know what you think. All purchases made in the gift shop directly fund their research, education and conservation programs. It is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year and Vancouver Aquarium members also receive a 20 percent discount on every purchase.
