After such a stunning weekend, we’re excited to dive into another full week of colourful foliage and sunshine – and perhaps even a welcome dip in temperature. We are trying to break out our fall sweaters at some point, after all.

From taking a new barre & strength class to hitting up your local pumpkin patch, here are 10 amazing things to do around Vancouver this week (October 17-21).


Morcheeba is honestly one of those bands that is a perfect blend of multiple genres. The electronic group formed in the mid-1990s with founding members vocalist Skye Edwards and Paul and Ross Godfrey. And now, their sound is a unique blend of trip-hop, rock, folk rock, and downtempo – you can check them out live on Tuesday, October 18th.

When: Tuesday, October 18th

Hell’s Gate Airtram

If you’re looking for a fun day trip idea this fall, why not take a ride on one of the steepest airtrams in North America?? If that isn’t spooky enough, the area is said to be haunted by the spirits of “Edward, The Smoking Man, and the lady behind the gift shop door.”

Rent a couple of e-bikes

Last but not least, we suggest soaking in this gorgeous weather we a leisurely bike ride while you can. Mobi thankfully has e-bikes now, and the 24-Hour Pass gives you access to e-bikes for 25¢/min for the first 30 minutes and 35¢/min thereafter. Take a ride around Stanley Park or explore somewhere new!

And that’s a wrap on this week, Vancouver! We’ll catch you later.
