Welcome to the end of the weekend, folks! It’s been a rainy few days, but we’re hoping that we might get to see a little sun this week in Vancouver. Fingers crossed that our optimism pays off. And hey, if not, at least it’ll be a little warmer outside anyway. Let’s see what’s in store!

Here are 10 things to do this week in Vancouver.

Watch a Drive-In Movie

All week long, the Twilight Drive-In will be showing movies for spring break in the city. The lineup has everything from Stuart Little to 21 Jump Street, so we’re sure you’ll be able to find something you like.

When: Showtimes throughout the week
Where: 260th Street & Fraser Highway, Langley
Cost: $30 and up

Go on a spring date

Do you feel the romance in the air? No? Well, maybe you’re not in the right places. From outdoor activities to great arts and culture options, we’ve rounded up some of the best spring date ideas around the city.

Look at some shipwrecks

We almost never give a shoutout to the Vancouver Maritime Museum, so we think it’s overdue. Their latest exhibition is a collection of photographs from Stefano Benazzo, who has spent decades taking pictures of shipwrecks from all over the world. Sure, it’s niche, but we like it!

When: Open throughout the week
Where: 1905 Ogden Avenue
Cost: $13.50

Museum of Anthropology- A Future for Memory

Speaking of nice, MOA welcomed a new exhibition last month. This one focuses on the impact and aftermath of the 2011 earthquake off the coast of Japan. It’s an interesting one, especially since MOA itself is undergoing extensive ‘earthquake-proofing’ reconstruction.

When: Open throughout March
Where: 6393 NW Marine Drive, UEL
Cost: $15

Buy some zines online

The Unibrow Arts Fest returns this week! While events and talks don’t start until the weekend, you can still check out a great selection of zines from local artists. And, with prices starting around $3, this is a great way to get into art without dropping a ton of cash.

Check out some of the top places to eat in the city

According to Yelp users, by the way. But, we actually think they made a great list of neighbourhood favourites that you need to try if you haven’t already. From bakeries to sushi joints, this list varies wildly from the usual ‘best of’ lists, and we like that.

Wander around the Vancouver Art Gallery

There are quite a few exhibits on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery this spring. Explore the world of Optical Art, check out some local artists, or peruse some of the best photography in the gallery’s collection. Why do we like museums so much? That’s easy- conversation is a breeze when you’re looking at crazy stuff for a few hours.

When: On throughout the week
Where: 750 Hornby Street
Cost: Varies

Seek out some beautiful cherry blossoms

We have a feeling that checking out cherry blossoms will be a top choice for us this spring, and we’re down for it. After all, cherry blossoms are beautiful, free, and a great opportunity for some fresh air. Now, the issue is picking where to go, but we’ve got you covered with the city’s best areas.
