22 Things To Do In BC That You Need To Add To Your Spring Bucket List
Soon enough, spring will be here, and it will be time to break out your t-shirts and sunglasses. After what feels like endless weeks of cold weather, we are looking forward to the change of season. If you are like us and can't wait for the warmer weather, then we've got you covered. We made a list of the top things to do in B.C. that you need to add to your spring bucket list ASAP.
After spending so long hibernating indoors, it is finally time to get outside. Spring is the ideal time to go for a hike to waterfalls, or beautiful lookouts as the temperature isn't too hot or cold.
One of the first signs of the end of winter is all the flowers. So it is time to stop and smell the blooms at all festivals happening.
Between all the tulip, apple blossom and cherry blossom festivals happening, you won't run out of things to do.
It's more than just flowers coming to B.C. this spring. For example, the Jurassic World Live Tour is coming to Vancouver, and the Sea To Sky Gondola is running again after being vandalized.
It is time to message your BFF and start planning what the two of you are going to do first.
