Whenever you are planning a trip to a new city there are necessary things you look into. For example, transportation, accommodation, and local attractions.
But often times, we don’t look into the specific events happening in the city throughout our stay, resulting in a, “If I knew THAT was going on, I totally would of checked it out” moment.
Thankfully, when it comes to the city of Vancouver there is ample information on what’s happening in the city on any day of the week. So, before you plan your whole vacation, make sure to check out these websites to make the most out of your stay.
The minute the fall temperatures start rolling in, many of us are reminded that the cold winter that is just around the corner. Ice. Snow. Polar Vortex. We know it’s coming, but we’re just not ready to think about it yet, so what do a lot of Canadians do?
Start planning a winter vacation!
That’s right, we start looking for a vacation that will make our Canadian winter just the slightest bit more bearable.
It’s bittersweet. The last long-weekend of the summer has come and gone, but I can’t even be upset about it because I had a fabulous weekend away.
This weekend, my fiancé and our friends travelled to Vancouver Island to explore the town of Ucluelet, or Ukee as the locals call it. I’ve never been to that side of the island, so I was exited to see the Pacific Ocean in all its glory and explore a place off the well-travelled path.
If I could recommend any time to visit Canada it would be the summer, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
I absolutely adore my country and cannot say enough great things about it, but I would be foolish if I said, “Canada is great to visit any time of the year”. That my friends, is not an accurate statement.
Don’t get me wrong – Canada is beautiful in the winter, and if you’re an avid skier or snowboarder it might be your dream to visit our incredible mountain ranges (specifically the west coast, where you’ll find some of the best skiing on the planet). Having said that, I would HIGHLY advise visiting Canada during the summer months, when you don’t have to wear layers of clothing and scrape ice off your rental car.
