The good weather is set to continue in Vancouver this week, and we couldn’t be happier about it! Things might get a little rainy starting Thursday, but up until then, we’re definitely going to try and get outside a little bit. And even then, we’ve got other options on tap!

Here are the 10 best things to do in Vancouver this week.

Lights to the Lodge
