Well, Vancouver, we made it through another week. Even though it was a short one thanks to Thanksgiving, it was still busy. Now, all we have is a couple more days left until two glorious days off. As always, we have the 7 things to do in Vancouver this weekend

Thanksgiving weekend was amazing and quite frankly, not long enough. Between the family and friend time and the insane amount of food, we need a break.

Now is the time of the week where many of us dream about our weekend plans. But don’t fret, we are here to help with that. Right now in Vancouver, there are tons of things to do. And before the weather gets too snowy and cold, we suggest getting out there and doing it all. 

Whether you are just looking at the gorgeous fall leaves or taking in a sweet, one-night event, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
