Welcome to the end of the weekend, Vancouver! We’ve got some more great weather ahead of us this week, which makes our things to do list that much easier to make! Whether you’re looking for some exercise outdoors or just trying to relax at home, we’ve got some great options for you. Let’s check them out.

Here are 10 things to do in Vancouver this week.

Virtual Party for the Planet

Hosted by the City of Surrey, this family-friendly livestream will educate people on living sustainably. There are prizes to be won, and the event will feature musical performances from a variety of local artists.

When: April 22nd
Where: Online

Hit the Links

Vancouver is one of the few regions in Canada to offer outdoor golf year-round. What’s more, the sport practically guarantees no interaction with other people if you don’t want to. So, maybe think about hitting one of the city golf courses or a pitch and putt for some exercise.

When: Courses open daily
Where: Around Vancouver
Cost: Varies

Go on a bike ride

It’s been an absolute scorcher of a week, weather-wise. And, there are few better ways to take advantage of some great spring weather than with a bike ride around our beautiful city. If you’re looking for some great routes we’ve got you covered, from quick trips to all-day affairs.

Try and spot some meteors

The Lyrid meteor shower has officially kicked off! The meteor shower will start to peak later on this week, and we think this is a great excuse to get out stargazing in the city. And, with nights like the one we’ve been having, you won’t be worrying about some unforeseen rainfall or anything.

Do a little shopping

The first-ever Dover Street Market pop-up has landed in Canada, and it’s right here in Vancouver! Nordstrom is now showing some of the collections from DSM’s ‘Brand Development’ program, which helps up-and-coming designers. It’s a niche pick, but we’ve got a little bit of a fashion background so we’re pumped.

When: Now open
Where: 799 Robson Street

Dine on the waterfront

Vancouver is home to a serious number of waterfront patios to check out. And, maybe this weekend is the time to do it. Try and stay as close to home as possible, but we definitely think it’s a fantastic weekend to be dining outdoors in Vancouver.

When: Open throughout the weekend

Look at a food-focused art exhibit

Does the last pick have you feeling peckish? Well, you might want to plan to visit The Polygon’s next exhibit, titled A Feast for the Eyes. The show is a roundup of some of the world’s most famous photographers, and all the pieces have one thing in common- a focus on food. Then afterwards, treat yourself to a little something from Nemesis Coffee downstairs.

When: Open throughout April
Where: 101 Carrie Cates Court, North Vancouver
Cost: Admission by donation

Experience new public art

The newest public art piece in Vancouver is a multimedia installation that’s part of the Vancouver Art Gallery. It’s hard to sum up, but think of it as a collaborative event to try and map, in a few different ways, the social changes and events that have shaped our city over the years.

When: Now on
Where: 1100 W Georgia Street

Check out a rainforest treewalk

One of the more recent additions for outdoor activities in the city is the Greenheart TreeWalk at the UBC Botanical Garden. The elevated walk winds some 310 metres amongst the trees, offering a unique perspective on the already beautiful area. Plus, you’ll have to visit the Botanical Garden to get there, which is a worthwhile trip by itself.

When: Now open
Where: 6804 SW Marine Drive
Cost: $10 for garden admission, and $13 for TreeWalk add-on, tickets available March 31st

Seek out some beautiful cherry blossoms

We hate to say it, but we’re running out of time to see all the cherry blossoms that we’d like to in Vancouver. Now, the issue is picking where to go, but we’ve got you covered with the city’s best areas.

That’s what we’ve got in mind this week, Vancouver!
