You might want to take the skylift up to the ski resort Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver. There's quite a view on the way up, if it's not too cloudy. You can rent skis or a snowboard up on top.
The skywall off Stanley Park is a nice place for a walk if it isn't raining.
Taking the Seabus (part of our public transit) over North Vancouver might be interesting. To the east of the entrance to the Seabus is the older part of Vancouver with many newly renovated old buildings from back in the days when it was a logging town.
I'm not much for eating in restaurants, so my opinion on that isn't worth much. But there are quite a few to choose from downtown, especially in the Robson/Burrard/West Georgia area.
