Vancouver Sightseeing and Attractions
As you step outside into our city, you are greeted with clean air and gorgeous views.
Vancouver is known to have some of the most amazing natural landmarks such as Grouse Mountain, Stanley Park and English Bay that are conveniently close to our downtown area (within walking distance).
Major city centres are also connected with our transit system known as Translink.
All you will need is a transit pass known as a Compass Card and you will be able to enjoy a network of buses, trains and local ferries that we call “seabuses”.
Even if you are just flying in, getting from the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Downtown Vancouver to our campuses is as easy as hopping on the SkyTrain.
If you are a fan of hiking or nature, taking a short SeaBus ride from Downtown Vancouver and back will take you to three well known Vancouver sightseeing spots.
Capilano Suspension Bridge and Park
After about a 15-minute transit ride, you will be greeted to Capilano Park which boasts our famous Capilano Suspension Bridge.
According to Tourism BC, the Capilano Suspension Bridge is known to bring in over a million visitors and tourists a year!
A Campus in The Heart of Vancouver
Alexander College’s Vancouver Campus is located in the centre of downtown Vancouver on the corner of Seymour and West Hastings Street.
The Vancouver campus is steps away from the major shopping, entertainment districts, and major tourist attractions. As well, it is just one block from the Vancouver Waterfront SkyTrain.
Around the campus, you will also discover our historic Gastown and its variety of eateries, landmarks and promenades.
You’ll be able to visit our famous Steam Clock and Hotel Europe which is styled after the flatiron buildings of New York.
In fact, Gastown has lent its location to numerous film, TV show productions and independent photoshoots.
Film aficionados may notice locations or settings that were used in shows such as the CW’s Arrow, Supergirl or The Flash.
