Vancouver by Trolley – Stop 14 Totem Poles (Red 6)

The weather is finally turning here in Vancouver and as I hopped off the Trolley at the Totem Poles in Stanley Park, I was greeted by a refreshing ocean breeze that indicates summer is truly right around the corner.

According to the Vancouver Park Board, the Totem Poles are the most visited attraction in British Columbia and it’s no wonder why.  The Totem Poles beautifully showcase the region’s aboriginal history and have been found in this location since the early ’60s.

Directly across from the Totem Poles is a great little gift shop, Legends of the Moon, with snacks and souvenirs aplenty. This area has a lot more to offer than just the Totem Poles and a gift shop, however, Just past the Totems you can find the famous lighthouse in Brockton Point, observation placards pointing you towards the North Shore with a brilliant view of the Lions Gate Bridge, and Lumberman’s Arch is right around the corner.

As promised, I also took the time to participate in another Vancouver gem, the Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tours. This was an amazing way to explore the thousand acres in Stanley Park. The hour tour was fully-narrated and while leisurely trotting through the Park, our guide pointed out highlights along with some of the area’s history. The Horse-Drawn Tour is something I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time and is a worthwhile activity for its uniqueness alone.
