ComeBack to Transit for Family Fun

Hiking with Kids in Vancouver

Packing up the family in the car and taking off is always a lot of work, even just in the planning. But lucky for us, a fun-filled kid-friendly getaway is reachable right here in town, and TransLink is always your reliable, safe and hassle-free way for the whole family to travel there.

 Grab your mask and a day-pass, and head out on this full day of exploration, delicious eating and even a little bit of learning along the way.


  1. Start at Waterfront Station, easily accessible by SkyTrain or SeaBus or most downtown bus lines. Just a short walk up to Purebread will start the day off with a coffee and a scone for mom and dad while the kids stand breathless before the mountain of sweet treats on display in the window. Grab your selections from their take-away window and enjoy them on your walk. It’s okay, they’ll burn the sugar off in the excitement of the next stop.

2. Head back towards Waterfront Station and just past it to Canada Place, home of FlyOver Canada. Here, you won’t miss that cross-country trip because you’ll soar from coast to coast as wind, scents and other special effects make you feel like you’re really there, flying over Canada’s most spectacular valleys, rivers, mountains and cities. Reduced capacity has ensured proper spacing between riders and booking on-line will help you avoid line-ups when you arrive.

3. When you come back down to earth, make your way back to the SkyTrain and ride just four stops to the Main Street-Science World Station for a visit to – you guessed it – one of the city’s most famous and beloved family attractions. The sparkling silver ball is just steps from the station, you absolutely can’t miss it. Your online-purchased timed-entry ticket will buy you 3 hours at Science World, plenty of time to explore the world in Lego form at the Towers of Tomorrow exhibition, as well as the permanent galleries and labs that will have your little scientists living it up as they learn.


 4. All that brain power is going to need some fuel, and what better way to satisfy every hungry mouth in the family than pizza? Head back to the Main Street Station and catch the #3 Bus up to Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. for a private family pizza party where your host will guide each member of your squad through creating your own personal pizza – no squabbling over toppings tonight! You can book your party through their website.


Bellies full and minds blown, hop back on TransLink to wherever you call home. Just don’t be surprised if you have a little head fall asleep on your shoulder on your way.
