Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world with the ocean at its doorstep and majestic mountains hugging around its sides.

There are many things to do in Vancouver after you’ve attended all your panels — you can take a tour around Stanley Park, go whale watching, do a pub crawl in historic Gastown, or just relax in a bar at our hotel, the Hyatt Regency Vancouver.

OSide Tripsptional Side Trips
The Vancouver Committee is presently working on organizing three Side Trips. More information will appear on this page and in our newsletters soon.

Tuesday, March 26: Day Trip to Victoria
Victoria is the capital of BC and is located on Vancouver Island. The bus trip would include a ferry ride through the scenic Gulf Islands.

Wednesday, March 27: Babes in the Woods Cold Case Tour
This is one of Vancouver’s most famous cold cases: the discovery of the remains of two children in Stanley Park in 1953. Although many police hours were spent on the investigation, the murderer was never found. This would be a half-day trip around Stanley Park and then a visit to the Vancouver Police Museum, which is the oldest police museum in North America. Forensic evidence from the case is on display. The Police Museum is in a heritage building which used to be the City Morgue. Many TV shows and movies are filmed here, including X-Files. Because the building is old, there is no elevator and it is not wheelchair accessible.

Sunday, March 31: Museum of Anthropology at UBC
This would be a Sunday afternoon trip. The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia campus in Vancouver houses one of the world’s finest displays of Northwest Coast First Nations arts in a spectacular Arthur Erickson designed building overlooking the mountains and sea.
