One of the most exciting things about the city of Vancouver is the act that it has beautiful mountains minuets away from the Pacific Ocean. A mere thirty minuets outside down town Vancouver is Mount Seymour Provincial Park, which is a perfect location for an early morning sunrise hikes. Seymour has about 14 different trails that vary in difficulty but the top of the mountain offers the city of Vancouver, Mount Baker and east over Indian Arm Provincial Park. The breath taking views accompanied by the vibrantly painted skies are more than worth the early wake up call.
After your early morning hike you will have earned yourself a generous breakfast and Vancouver is home to more than coffee donuts at Time Horton’s. Yolks Restaurant and Commissary, with three locations, offers a wide variety of large portions. Everything there is fresh cooked and tasty on pretty reasonable price. However, I strongly recommend the poached eggs.
For some post breakfast activities walk around downtown and walk (or run) along the sea wall. If you are interested in running check out the half marathon, Seawheeze, hosted by the Canadian brand Lululemon Athletica that takes place in the city every year. The half marathon is more of a party than a race. The day prior to the actual run itself there is a check in party, a runners store filled with gear exclusive to the event, and a yoga class. The race itself goes through downtown Vancouver and along the seawall and at the end there is a full breakfast and other goodies waiting for you. In the evening Lululemon hosts a festival in Stanley Park full of music artists, local vendors, and special brewed beer. Registration for the Seawheeze typically opens up in September and the race takes place in August, but is warned spots fill up fast!
Try thy the poached eggs at Yolks Restaurant and Commissary. Most of the visitors would try hamburgers. However, locals recommend these poaches eggs
