We’re getting into prime apple-picking season, and there are no shortage of u-pick farms and apple festivals to enjoy. Make a road trip out of it and explore Vernon, or stay local at the UBC Botanical Garden. Here are our picks for the best apple-picking spots!

Go patio-hopping

Switching gears: It’s still patio season in our book. So whether you hit up some waterfront patios, rooftop spots, or a mix of both – there are plenty of fun spaces old & new to hang out at before summer’s end. New to our list of faves? The back patio at Mount Pleasant Vintage & Provisions and this pop-up spot along False Creek. Just trust us. You can also add some dog-friendly patios to the itinerary if you’ve got some pups who want to join in on the action!

Where: See our picks above

Work on your short game

As we mentioned before, mini golf is a great option if you want to get outdoors and enjoy that beautiful sunshine we’ve got while it’s still here. Like bowling, the skill ceiling is weirdly high, but the game is so straightforward that a total novice will still have fun out there. Whether you’re looking for a date night option or a weekend that’s fun for the whole family, we’ve got you covered.

Vancouver Canadians

A hot dog, a brewski, and some baseball? If that doesn’t sound like a great way to spend an afternoon, then we don’t know what does. Plus, the prices really can’t be beat for pro sports around the city. This month, they’ll be facing off against Eugene’s Emeralds – and these are the last couple of games in the season!

When: Games until Sunday, September 11th
Where: 4601 Ontario Street, The Nat
Cost: $20+

And that’s a wrap on this weekend, folks! We hope it’s a great one.
