Capilano Suspension Bridge : Vancouver Canada

Lots to see and do in Vancouver, but the national parks just North of the city rising over the mountains are probably what makes Vancouver special and memorable to me. During my short time in Vancouver I had the change to visit two such attractions with a special shuttle leaving from the conference center. The first was the Capilano Suspension Bridge, a very commercialized attraction overcrowded with tourists, but offering a somewhat unique experience of walking through a forest of high trees on a long suspension bridge hanging 70 meters above the Capliano river. There are various attractions before and after the bridge, with one set of suspension walks on the mountain ridge near the entrance and another setting a tree walk along the trees on the other side of the bridge.

I must admit that I really enjoyed the whole experience. The views are terrific, the suspension bridge offers a bit of a rush, and the whole adventure is very well done to fit all ages. If you find it hard to get your friends and family to go into nature, then this is the easiest attraction you can find to get them out into the forest having fun and enjoying the outdoors.
