Who says you have to splurge to have fun?
If you want to go out on a date with your significant other but are sick of spending lots of money on dinner or drinks, luckily there are plenty of cheap (and seriously fun) activities to do in Vancouver. There are even loads of free things to do - and without compromising the fun!
We all know what it's like to be stretching your wallet towards the end of the month, but that doesn't mean you have to sit at home in sadness. Hit up some of these activities that are super cheap in Vancouver!
Hosted by Mat Collective, you can do free outdoor yoga sessions all over Vancouver this summer! What better way to spend time with your significant other than spending time in the beautiful outdoors? Make sure to check out their website for schedules and locations for yoga sesssions.
Granville Island is the perfect escape from the bustling noise of the city, where you can spend hours exploring the public market, the local shops, all without spending a dime! Of course, there is plenty to buy around the area - but you definitely can spend the day without having to fork out a lot of cash.
The seawall of Stanley Park is a full 10 kilometres, and circles the entire park - so it is perfect for a long leisurely bike ride. Bicycles can be rented close to the entrance of Stanley Park, and you can enjoy views of the North Shore mountains and Lions Gate Bridge during your journey.
Home to some spectacular floral displays, Queen Elizabeth Park is Vancouver's horticultural jewel. It is an extremely popular location for wedding shoots! The park is the perfect setting for a picnic - especially on a beautiful sunny day when you can enjoy the beautiful gardens.
Have some downtime and enjoy the warm sun with your significant other - and enjoy the amazing views of Vancouver from the Kitsilano Pool. We have a feeling this place will be buzzing during the summer months, so get there early!
If you head to Vancouver Art Gallery on a Tuesday, admission is pay-what-you-want, meaning you can pay whatever you want for admission! It is actually surprisingly fun wandering around the different art exhibitions that come to Vancouver.
Lynn Canyon is the (free) alternative to the more well known Capilano, and not only does it have a similar suspension bridge, but also hikes and swimming holes to see as well. We'd much rather come to Lynn Canyon National Park and spend time in nature with our bae!
No summer bucket list is complete without heading to one of Vancouver's night markets, and luckily there are some without an admission price. Try the Shipyards Night Market in North Vancouver for some entertainment and great atmosphere with your significant other!
Flight Path Park is located at the end of the South Runway, and is therefore a perfect location to spot planes, have a picnic, or watch the sunset (super romantic)! It is honestly one of the best date spots without having to spend any money.
We are so blessed to be in Vancouver where there are so many beautiful hikes and parks to visit, and Lighthouse Park is one of them. An iconic lighthouse in West Vancouver, it is one of the best spots in town to watch the sun set - and what is more romantic than that?
Head to Stanley Park on any Tuesday night from July 3 till August 21 to watch some free movies out in the open! With an epic movie lineup, head to their website to check out the schedule. Pack a picnic and blankets for a great night out.
Enjoy the sunny weather with your best friend and your boyfriend/girlfriend! The dog beach at Spanish Banks is so much fun, and there is no better feeling than seeing everyone's furry friends having a blast.
From July 8 till August 26, every Sunday you can attend free afternoon salsa dancing at Robson Square. You can either attend the free lessons at 3pm, or watch performances at 5pm! These sessions are taught by some of Vancouver's best salsa instructors, and it is actually so much fun.
If you want to visit just the observatory, entry is by donation (pay as much as you want). So technically you could go in for free, but why not donate that $2.88 you have in the bank for a romantic night out!
