These are good ideas. If you have been downtown post Lions games but wife hasn't maybe start on a Saturday morning with a drive to Stanley Park and walk there. It is a large park but you can walk around it entirely if you love walking - a few hours but maybe that is too much. Drive part of it and stop at places like the 9 O'clock gun for a view of the downtown, then stop just after the Lions Gate Bridge at the point there (name escapes me). You will drive over the Lions Gate bridge causeway.
For a beach experience you could stop at Second Beach.
For lunch you could go to the West End and if you like Greek food do what we used to do pre-Lion games and go to Stephos on Davie Street for a great lunch (big plates) and good prices. Avoid the higher priced Greek one to the east of it. Parking is harder to find but London drugs across the street has pay. Get there a bit early as the line ups of students (language students discovered this place).
After that you could drive over to Granville Island or even go there for lunch. You can google all this stuff.
Parking your car - leave nothing visible as foreign lic. plates are a dead giveaway for thieves who will breakin for 50 cents if they see it. Have coins for meters with you. This is true if you go to China town.
Added places to go (if you were in Stanley Park on a Sunday then this is a shortish drive over the Lions Gate to Capilano Road:
1. Capilano Suspension Bridge - North Vancouver
2. Grouse Mountain - you could walk up the Grouse Grind if fit (a big challenge - not if unfit) and then take sky lift down or just take sky lift up. It is interesting walking around. Restaurant up there is okay. Great for an evening meal. Not cheap but great views.
3. Cleveland Dam - all three are accessible via Capilano Road.
Dinner - Salmon House in West Vancouver (at least it used to be awesome with a great view).
