MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., Feb. 12 (UPI) -- A U.S. tourism Web site suggests visitors to Vancouver, Canada, take a break from the upcoming Olympics by visiting the city's museums and restaurants.
VirtualTourist.com's list of "Five Great Things to Do in Vancouver," put together ahead of the upcoming Olympic Games, was topped by the Museum of Anthropology, which boasts a famed collection of totem poles.
Second on the list of Vancouver's local treasures was the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which was first constructed in 1889 and rebuilt in 1956 in only five days.
The city also contains North America's second-largest Chinatown, which is filled year-round with events and exhibits.
For food, the Web site recommends those eagerly awaiting the opening ceremonies satisfy their appetites at Mr. Pickwick's Fish and Chips, which has received dozens of awards and is famous for its rotating menu of fish recipes from around the world.
VirtualTourist said Olympics enthusiasts must visit the Canadian Mint Pavilion, where visitors can get a glimpse at this year's medals and learn about the minting process.
