Visit Burnaby

Think of Burnaby as the center of a universe of awesome attractions

While Burnaby itself overflows with things to see and do, a visit to Burnaby is so much more than that: it’s your gateway to the entire Vancouver region’s attractions and hotspots. Whether the great outdoors call to you, or you want to see the sights of the big city, adventure awaits you at every corner of the lower mainland.

If the sights and sounds of nature are what you seek, look no further than Burnaby’s (and the Vancouver region’s) varied flora and fauna, viewed from any number of breathtaking vantage points. Take the Skyride over Grouse Mountain for panoramic views of British Columbia, or take a closer look from a Harbor Cruise tour. Thrill-seekers can cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge for stunning canyon, river, and forest views – and learn secrets of the First Nation peoples in the nearby Big House Cultural Center. Lynn Canyon and Hell’s Gate Air Tram provide even more magnificent views of nature. Take a deep breath and experience the calm that comes with spending some time outdoors.

Looking for a little art or history? Look no further than Vancouver’s many museums and galleries. Enjoy a guided tour at Simon Fraser University before contemplating the art gallery; the Vancouver Art Gallery and Museum of Anthropology offer even more to take in as you explore the city. Once you’ve had enough of art and history, stop by the Telus World of Science or say hello to the otters at the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park – all just minutes from Burnaby. In Burnaby proper, step back in time at the Burnaby Village Museum, or take the kids on a classic steam train tour at Burnaby Central Railway.

See more of what makes Burnaby so special on a self-guided agriculture tour along the Big Bend, featuring 43 farms as of last count! Don’t forget to stop along the way to check out some of the farms up close and personal – whether you’re looking to bring some local produce home or just taste some of the area’s bounty on the road, or say hello to some friendly farm animals. During the spring, be sure to visit the Abbotsford Tulip Festival in the Fraser Valley, or the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden downtown for more stunning botanical displays.

Of course, don’t forget about Burnaby’s many shops, restaurants, cafes and casinos – if you’re up for more after a day of exploring BC, the nightlife won’t disappoint you. The fun doesn’t have to end there – centrally located near downtown Vancouver, Burnaby can be your home base as you venture to Southwestern BC gems like Deep Cove, Squamish, and Whistler. We can’t wait to show you all that Burnaby has to offer.
