As a native Vancouverite, YVR Airport has been the starting point of many of my travels. For me, being at YVR always brings back wonderful memories of starting a new adventure or returning home. But for those who have a layover or have a flight delayed, YVR can be just a place to kill time. Luckily, YVR, recently voted North America’s best airport, is rife for things to do. From shopping to eating to getting a little culture, you won’t be bored at YVR. Here are 6 things to do at YVR other than catch a flight:
1. Watch planes take off.
A public observation area can be found on Level 4 in the Domestic Terminal. It’s the perfect place to watch planes take off, as well as catch a nice sunset. Additionally, the space is decked out with interactive kiosks, a large-scale model of YVR, and information panels. It’s a great place to bring the kids and learn a little about the airport.
