    Fabulous in the winter because it is so peaceful and no one is there. In the summer the water is so shallow you can walk forever in the ankle-deep tidal pools. It's calm and wonderful—very West Coast. -- The Wall Street Journal via Foursquare

    Take in an exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery, followed by drinks at the charming Gallery Café. The Café’s desserts are divine and the atmosphere is seemingly European. -- Vancouver Convention Centre via Foursquare

    Either it's a technical fault or a misguided effort to save money on bulb costs, but the IMAX movie was dim and murky. Movies look better on my home TV, I'd give it a miss. -- Dooby Keebler via Foursquare
