- Run along the Seawall. Pack your runners, bring some water and head out early to hit the Seawall path. Winding around beautiful Stanley Park, this is a great way to see Vancouver and go where the locals go.
- Aphrodite’s for brunch. This delightful spot in Kitsilano is a short walk from Jericho Beach and serves organic, local food. While you’re waiting for your order, admire the piñatas (made by a local artist) sprinkled around the restaurant. And save room for pie.
- Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge. Challenge your fear of heights by walking across the bridge (and your patience, there will be crowds). Similar in height to the neighbouring Capilano bridge but free, it’s certainly not as quiet as it used to be. The views are worth it, and the park has some nice trails to wander should you wish to burn off that brunch pie. Take the SeaBus across for nice views of the Vancouver skyline.
- Regional Assembly of Text. So much love for this store! From quirky cards, to stamps, buttons (you can make your own!) and a typewriter for you to tap-tap-tap out a thoughtful note, it’s a great spot to pop into for your stationery fix. They also have a monthly letter writing club.
- Beers at 33 Acres. The flights are top-notch, the atmosphere is fun and the rotation of food truck options to accompany your beverage delicious. Also anywhere that offers homemade chips and dip on a menu ranks highly in my books.
