A feature top list of unique and local places to check out when your visiting in and around Vancouver, British Columbia

Pebbles Restaurant, Sechelt, Sunshine Coasti

What’s better than coastline, great food and a hotel right off the water. Situated in the Driftwood Inn in Sechelt, Pebbles Restaurant is a great little stop for lunch. You can wander down to the water before or after your meal and even walk down the sea wall to see some cool sights.

The fish and chips, seafood clubhouse and seafood chowder are all great choices for a meal. An excellent find among the Sunshine Coast. Two of us were able to eat for around $50 CDN.

Basted Baker, Sechelt, BC

Sechelt has a quaint downtown area with a few little places that are must visits. The Basted Baker is a great breakfast and lunch spot. Also doubles as a great bakery if your looking for fresh baked goodness. Try the eggs Benedict or a nice matcha latte. Not the cheapest but not super expensive either. Breakfast and two lattes cost us about $40 CDN

Kings Mill Walk Dog Park, North Vancouver

Whether your a fan of furry friends or just want to check out a cool park this is a great place to be and a short walk from Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver and even shorter once the Spirit trail is completed. There can be many dogs in the giant dog park that will just come up to you. With picnic tables and sitting benches it is the perfect free place to check out the view of downtown Vancouver from the north shore.North Vancouver Dog Park
