<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Wow, tough call. Both are worth doing if you've never been and you have the time.
Stanley Park is like the quintessential Vancouver - lots of trees, water, view of the mountains and is such an integral part of the city. Whereas Grouse Mtn is more spectacular "view-wise".
Personally, I like going to Stanley Park because I like to walk/jog the seawall, get a bite to eat, and people-watch at the English Bay end of the park. And I never get tired of walking the different trails through the park. I haven't been up to Grouse in the summer for awhile - probably because it costs $ for the skyride and it's less accessible. On the other hand, my older son just went up with his girlfriend last week and had a blast! They hiked around and ate at the casual restaurant up top. (BTW, they said stick to the appetizers/tapas - the mains aren't that great).
I say, do both, if you can. Not much help, am I?
