The Seawall, Vancouver, British Columbia
The Stroll: This 13.7-mile pathway is the perfect place to appreciate the city’s natural beauty and cultural gems. It winds along the shore from Coal Harbor through the 1,000-acre Stanley Park to False Creek and Kitsilano Beach. The best part? The tranquil, 5.5-mile Stanley Park lap with groves of cedars, hemlocks, and firs on one side and Vancouver’s spectacular mountain-ringed downtown on the other.
When to Go: The climate is mild almost year-round, but May through September is the best time to enjoy the outdoors.—Donna Heiderstadt
