There were very few specific locations that I still had as must do while in Vancouver. One thing that I wanted to share though is a look at many of the art installations around the city. I had already passed by some of these on my walks, but there is a number in other areas of the city. So I decided to rent a bike for the day and explore a little further.
There are a number of places that you can rent a bike in Vancouver. I end up finding a little store along the harbourside, offering a 2-hour rental for $10. It has been quite some time since I have ridden a bike so thought this would be enough time. Of course, this turned out to be right and I was ready to get back to my feet in this time.
Vancouver Public Art
Vancouver has an extensive amount of public art. You come across different pieces in the most unlikely of spots at times. The majority of the art is the result of the Vancouver Biennale. A non-profit charitable organisation that exhibits great art in public space. You can read more on their website Vancouver Biennale. However, not all pieces are a part of these displays.
Called A-maze-ing Laughter, this is a group of, large, golden bronze colour statue’s in many poses all laughing. There are more all standing in a ring, but was difficult to capture all of them with people around.
Other Vancouver Sights
There were a few other sights that I managed to see while out on the bike today.
The small Aquabus ferries while being cute also are a great way to get a different perspective on Vancouver. They serve two purposes, the first is to cross from Downtown Vancouver to Granville Island. With the second being getting around a number of stops along False Creek.
I made a late decision on just what to do tomorrow. The update will likely come fairly late compared to the last few days. However, it is something quite different and I am sure that you will enjoy it.
