3 places Luna loves to go with her family
“Park Crawl” with False Creek Ferries
We like to jump on a False Creek Ferry and stop at each stop (pro tip: day-passes!) to visit the parks, playgrounds or cafes near by. Two of our favourite playgrounds (Creekside Playground by Science World and Granville Island Water Park) are along the way. We always stop at the Granville Island Market for a treat.
Our favourite place to take our daughter on those rainy days. So much to explore and it’s fun for all of us. I am especially excited about their efforts to promote STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) for girls.
Aphrodite’s Organic Cafe and Pie Shop
Our favourite restaurant to go to as a family. Delicious, healthy food and there is a kids’ play area!
