240 East Cordova Street used to be the address where Vancouver?s police officers, morticians, judges, and dead converged. The building, which was built in 1932, served as the city?s coroner?s court and morgue until the 1980s and the city analyst?s lab until 1995. Countless toxicology tests and several high-profile investigations have taken place between the building?s walls, including the Castellani Milkshake Murder and Errol Flynn?s autopsy. Fittingly, given the building?s significance to Vancouver's criminal-justice history, it is now home to the Vancouver Police Museum.

To date, the museum staff has curated a selection of approximately 20,000 historical artifacts, including confiscated weapons, counterfeit currency, photographs, paperwork, and vintage police vehicles. Currently, 40 per cent of the collection is on display in the museum?s several exhibits, one of which allows visitors to explore a coroner?s forensic lab. The museum also offers educational programs such as walking tours and a two-hour forensic-science program. During this program, guests scour a faux crime scene for clues and try to prevent the brash, young rookie cop from running off into the night to find the perpetrator.

Their laid-back eatery immerses diners in artful food preparation at the chef's table, where cooks prepare meals in the open to assuage the anxieties of claustrophobic cheeses.

The menu and its carefully selected complementary wines change with the season, variously sating appetites with fresh salmon, British Columbia boar, and a slew of other locally sourced ingredients. Occasional Wine Drinker dinners match themed five-course meals with ideal wines as patrons mingle in merriment. For special events and social gatherings, the catering service supplies appetizers and plated cuisine.

China is famous for its breathtaking and meticulously landscaped gardens, the most famous of which were designed hundreds of years ago, during the Ming Dynasty. The ancient tradition is alive and well at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, where guests will find the same signature symmetrical arrangements and winding paths popular on the other side of the world.

Yet the garden isn't simply a recreation of the real thing?it was built by actual Chinese artisans from Suzhou, who constructed each walkway and hall in the traditional manner, using intricate joinery that does not require nails, screws, or glue. And, just like the gardens of a thousand years ago, the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen garden boasts a design that aims to strike a balance between four elements: rock, water, plants, and architecture.

  • The rock: The garden's rock formations range from a man-made mountain at the center of the garden to a scattering of water-worn limestone boulders. The common denominator? They're all imported from the Suzhou's Lake Tai, down to the pebble.

  • The water: Jade green, due to the clay that lines the bottom of the garden's pond. The hue is an intentional artistic choice, meant to enhance the pond's reflections.
  • The plants: A blend of local plants and native Chinese ones, the garden's collection of flora ranges from cypress to miniature rhododendrons. Clusters of three winter plants?pine, bamboo, and winter-flowering plum?stud the terrain, symbolizing strength and rebirth.
  • The architecture: Visitors can step into assorted pavilions, including The Han Bi Xie (Jade Water Pavilion), which appears to float on the surface of the pond. The water flowing underneath it also keeps it refreshingly cool in the summer.

Looming 168.8 metres above the city atop the historic Harbour Centre complex, the Vancouver Lookout?s heated indoor observation deck has afforded visitors 360-degree city views since Neil Armstrong cut the ribbon in the 1977 opening ceremony. A pellucid glass elevator pilfered from Willy Wonka?s local chocolate factory speeds visitors up the tower?s side in a scenic 40-second ride. Once they reach their lofty destination, sightseers can peruse a host of interpretive displays that identify Vancouver?s landmarks including Stanley Park and the North Shore Mountains. An ensemble of knowledgeable staffers helms complimentary guided tours, doling out interesting historical tidbits. To further help guests decode what their eyes observe, a city-view guide slider clearly designates the names and locations of prominent sites. Single-visit passes grant all-day access to the observation deck, enabling visitors to watch planes landing on the sun-dappled waters of Harbour Water Airport throughout the day and return in the evening to bask in the glow of the city?s twinkling lights and prominently displayed bat signals.
