Default Vancouver....Help!

Our ship docks in Vancouver at 7:00 AM and we have a 5:00 PM flight back to San Diego. Chances are we'll debark about 9:00 AM and won't need to be at the airport until 3:00 PM. That leaves us with about 6 hours to kill. If we decide to rent a car does anyone have ideas on what to do or perhaps a scenic drive that wouldn't be too far from the airport? We'd like to find a place to have a nice lunch with great scenery.....Thanks!

6 hours isn't a lot of time, you may be better off considering the hop on hop off bus in Vancouver, you can check your bags at Canada Place, claim them later and cab to the airport. Vancouver is a very congested city and a car is worthwhile with more time in my opinion.

With that few of hours, I would suggest a walking tour of the downtown area, if you like to walk. Gastown is interesting and Vancouver has a great Chinatown including the Sun Yat Sen Chinese garden. Granville Island is interesting, too. There is lots to see without going out of the city. Grouse Mountain has a tram to the top but I'm not sure if you would have enough time for that.
