A quick weekend trip to Vancouver was just what we needed for our annual girls trip. It was an easy two-hour flight from SFO to Vancouver, and just what we needed before returning to SFO on a Princess cruise.

We landed in the afternoon and spent the first few hours chilling in our hotel before our fall day. The next morning, we started with Tim Hortons (of course!) and then headed to Stanley Park for a walk. The fall vibes were perfect, and there was so much to do. It reminded me of Central Park.

After Stanley Park, we went to Granville Island. I highly recommend spending a whole day on this island. The food is amazing! We loved the clam chowder at A La Mode. It was so good that I definitely recommend it. We also hit up Lee's Donuts, which were worth the wait.

After Granville Island, we took the mini ferries. They're such a cute and easy way to get around Vancouver. After that, we went to dinner at our hotel because we were tired, but for dessert we went back out and tried Breka Bakery & Café. They have so many options, from sweets to actual food, and it's so close to Canada Place. If you're getting on or off a cruise, definitely stop by.

It was a short one-day trip, but it definitely made us want to go back. There's so much left to do and explore. The city is clean, and we felt safe as women.
