Well, folks, the weather is certainly off to an interesting start this month, if nothing else. We know it’s still technically spring, but we can’t deny that we were hoping for a little less rain and a little more sunshine to kick off June. In any case, there are still plenty of things to do this week around our beautiful city!

Visit a covered patio/cafe, catch a concert, or eat some delicious Caribbean food in Coquitlam. We’ve got plenty of ideas to get the ball rolling this June. Here’s our roundup of 10 of the best things to do in Vancouver this week.
