Capilano Suspension Bridges

We finally made a trip to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I'm going to post a link right to their website BRIDGES. Honestly, this is one of the things that I never considered doing prior to this year because I really go for the FREE parks or parks that are not covered with huge groups getting off busses. But, i will say that THE PRICE IS WELL WORTH IT!!!!!

We stopped by the bridges in the am on a weekday, but as it was raining sideways we decided we'd come back later. We drove around for a bit after a stop for bagels and coffee at Tim Hortons (of course) and then ended up deciding to park the car and hop the light rail to see more of the city. We parked at the waterfront and found an information lady because really we had no idea where to start! After getting on a wrong train first, we hopped off and took the train that she had suggested. It took about 2 hours total but we saw a ton! From the light rail you get to overlook all of the neighborhoods, the views to the mountains, the views to the oceans, television and movie crews filming and setting up all of their trailers, just so so much. It was a great couple of hours. ;)

Arriving back at Capilano, we used our AAA card, paid the fee, stopped by the coffee bar for a snack and to load up the cameras and were on our way. We spent almost 3 hours exploring all of the bridges and the Cliff walk, and loved the tree house like bridges in the forest itself. I quickly remembered loving the Swiss Family Robinson stories from my childhood. In the tree area they have a scavenger type hunt set up for the kids to make sure they don't miss anything. My husband was wearing a GoPro on his baseball hat, so if you are interested in seeing some videos you can look on our Instagram page here:
