16 Boujee Things To Do In Vancouver With Your Boyfriend This Summer Even If You're Broke

Just because you're on a bit of a vacation hangover and you spent all your money in Thailand, doesn't mean you can't still enjoy a fancy summer in Vancouver.

We all know it can be tough in the city. Especially in a city full of millionaire who drive luxury sports cars, you can defs start to feel like you're on the broke side of the spectrum.

But it's the small luxuries in life that make it special...and they don't have to be expensive! Just because you aren't in Italy, doesn't mean you can't enjoy a delicious scoop of fancy gelato. Just because you aren't a billionaire who owns a 50th floor apartment with a rooftop patio (one day though), doesn't mean you can't stay at a penthouse suite.

Here are 16 boujee things you can do with your bae, or your BFF, this summer even if you're totally strapped for cash.
