Best Things to do in Vancouver This Summer
June 27, 2016
Surrounded by mountains and sea, Vancouver is a melting pot of fun-loving people. Popular with the movie industry and outdoor enthusiasts alike, there are thousands of things to do and see during the summer.
If you are visiting Vancouver during Canada Day then you’re in for a treat. The largest celebration in Canada, this party starts early with parades, fireworks at 10 PM and family fun activities. Come join Vancouver for this huge party in honour of Canada Day.
Stanley Park is a gorgeous place to get panoramic views of the city; take a bike ride around the park. In the summer you can join 6,000 residents for movies in the park. Bring your chair or beach blanket and watch free movies all summer long. Be sure to ride your bike along the sea wall for amazing views of the suspension bridge, the English Bay and the cliffs.
If you feel like challenging your stamina, take on Mother Nature’s Stairmaster. The Grouse Mountain Grind Path is 850m of wooden steps up a mountain, a very strenuous trek. From that viewpoint you can see all over Vancouver. The challenge beckons over 100,000 people yearly to climb. But, if you would rather save your breath, take the giant gondola Skyride to the top. It is truly a remarkable view.
Summer is the time for sun tans and there is no better place than English Bay Beach to tan your buns. Located in the west end of Stanley Park, English Bay Beach, which is also called First Beach, is the most popular beach area in Vancouver’s downtown.
