Fall is now officially upon us and you may already be missing the cute things that summer had to offer. Summer always has so many cute outdoor activities to offer and those carefree vibes that come with the season will definitely be missed. But autumn is so beautiful and underrated – it's the most colourful season of all, the only time where we can see the leaves turn into vibrant, golden colours of red, yellow and orange.
Not to mention, there are so many cute activities that only happen in fall –your favourite reason to dress up, Halloween, pumpkin patches and PSLs galore, playing in the leaves and getting lost in corn mazes. Plus, sweater weather is just the coziest.
But there's a hidden gem of an activity that you probably never knew about in Vancouver, and it might just win your heart over as a fall activity this season. This autumn, get lost in the magic of a gorgeous grape tunnel.
Move over flower arches – grape vine tunnels are the new thing in Vancouver. At Lulu Island Winery, you can walk under a stunning grape vine tunnel and feel like you're walking into a fairytale.
