Stealing this idea from the PDX/SEA folks. This thread is mainly for people visiting Vancouver and the Great Metro area, and where they should check out. I've added highlights and mentions from the Spring/Summer thread. In general, these are spots you can get to in 90 minutes or less, depending where in Metro YVR you are of course. Some spots are better than others, but I'm confident you'll find something you'll enjoy at every spot listed. If I've missed any 'must-dos' add it to the comments, and I'll add to the next version in 5-6 months once Spring is here. Cheers!
