Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge

Last week Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park opened for it's tenth year and I got to enjoy a date night with Will at this popular spot. The suspension bridge plus the Cliffwalk, Treetops Adventure and several other areas are decorated for the holiday season and we enjoyed walking through the park taking it all in. It's stunning and something the whole family will enjoy; or do what we did and make a date night of it. It's hard to decide what the highlight was, but I loved the Treetops Adventure and the all- white rainforest display. I might have driven Will a little crazy taking photos of everything, but we had a great time and look forward to bringing the kids next time. Partial proceeds from Canyon Lights are donated to the Firefighter's Burn Fund and more than $192,000 has been raised to date. See below for all the details about this great Vancouver attraction & tips for families.

Tips for Families
- weekdays are best to avoid line ups (before December 17th is best)
- purchase your tickets online to save time once you arrive
- if you have a baby, bring a baby carrier- strollers aren't allowed on the attractions
- dress warm- mitts, hats & scarves will help keep you cozy while you walk around
- plan to take lots of photos- there's a lot to see and if you bring the kids it will be worth it to capture their reactions. We used our phones for some photos and our camera for others (if you have one it's worth bringing)
- depending on the age of your kids, pick the attractions and activities that are suited for them; there is something for all ages to enjoy and it's worth it to plan what you want to do first (especially if you have nap/ bed time to consider
