There is no shortage of Christmas lights in Vancouver this time of year, but very few combine lights with heights. We recently spent an evening enjoying the Canyon Lights at the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. I’m not the biggest fan of heights but there was lots to see at the park that didn’t require being a couple hundred feet above the ground. Here are few highlights from our visit:
Thousands of lights adorn the trails that meander through the Rainforest, which makes for a beautiful juxtaposition of traditional Christmas trees against the forest. Lots of Totem Poles lined our path.
The suspension bridge is beautifully lined with lights and it’s an interesting twist to this tourist staple crossing it at night. The same goes for the Treetop Adventures which is the closest I think I will ever get to being an Ewok. This provides a great view of the entire park lights. We also braved the Cliffwalk, the park’s latest attraction. All are beautiful but high so I’m sure braver folks would enjoy these attractions more than me.
