Cresting the hill in Queen Elizabeth Park, this balmy, triodetic domed conservatory is an ideal rainy day warm-up spot as well as Vancouver's best-value attraction. For little more than the price of a latte, you'll find tropical trees and plants bristling with hundreds of free-flying, bright-plumaged birds. Look for the resident parrots but also keep your eyes peeled for rainbow-hued Gouldian finches, shimmering African superb starlings and maybe even a sparkling Lady Amherst pheasant, snaking through the undergrowth. The attendants might even let you feed the smaller birds from a bowl.

Pick-up a free bird watcher's checklist from the front desk and record how many you see.
