I'll be applying for a Passport soon and once I get it, the first place I plan on visiting is Vancouver, Canada! I especially want to see the Capilano Suspension Bridge and the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden. I'm super adventurous, so are there any other really fun or even scary things that I can do there? I like just about everything, so I'm open to all suggestions!Thank you!

You would probably enjoy going up to the top of grouse mountain and going ziplining "peak-to-peak". There's two grizzly bears up there (rescues in an enclosure), and other interesting attractions too, like a wind turbine with an observation deck. There are also companies that will take you paragliding in the region. I would also highly recommend a trip out to Deep Cove and renting a kayak to explore the area independently by sea. Last time I did that a seal swam right by me, I saw bald eagles, and schools of fish. Odd Society Spirits is a great craft distillery that make and sell their own unique and delicious spirits. The city is also home to a great craft beer scene if you're into that. English Bay or Kits Beach are great spots to hangout. Get a bike and bike the Sea Wall, start at Stanley Park. Wreck Beach is magical, if you enjoy nude beaches. Have High Tea at a fancy hotel like the Shangri-la. Go to the Richmond Night Market, or maybe to Granville Island in the day.

Granville Island is nice if you like to shop for art and crafts, and artsy clothing, OP. Stanley Park is a nice place to spend an afternoon strolling. I've never heard of the Sun Yat Sen Garden; I'll have to check that out when I next get to Van! UBC's Museum of Anthropology has a good First Nations art collection, mainly of local traditions. And there are galleries downtown and on Granville Island that carry First Nations art for sale.

Oh, and you should go and visit the Vancouver Aquarium. It's the best "museum" in the city and is a world class aquarium.
