The weekend is so close that we can taste it, Vancouver! We can feel it too, since the weather has been heating up all week for us. Make the most of some great spring temperatures this weekend, with relaxing activities, local exploration, and more!

Here are 10 things to do in Vancouver this weekend.

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 officially kicks off this week! While it doesn’t peak for another few days, 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

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 tree walk

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.

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