Or take a full on staycation

Is it still a staycation if you leave the city but stay in the region? We’re betting on yes, and we’ve rounded up some great activities for you to check out not just this weekend but any! Hit the mountains, enjoy a winery tour, or just kick back with Mother Nature.

Sit on a patio

But not just any patio. Oh no, considering the weather this weekend we think you should make a reso for a waterfront patio. Sip some cocktails, enjoy a nice meal, and take in the beauty of the city while you enter total relaxation mode. Sounds like a great couple of hours to us!

Go on a hike

Maybe you’ve got more energy than you know what to do with. Hey, that’s no problem, since there are literally hundreds of trails and hikes around the city. Click the link above for 5 to get started with, or, see what you can find on AllTrails, which is basically a cheat code to the great outdoors.

And those are 5 great ways to spend this long weekend in and around Vancouver! Full honesty- we still don’t know what we’re going to get up to, so this guide was also a way for us to check out our options.

Enjoy the weekend, folks!
