29 Things To Do With Your Girlfriend In BC This Summer

Summer lovin' had me a blast. Summer lovin' happened so fast! Met a girl...and now you want to know where to take her am I right? Don’t worry about it, I’ve got your province wide summer date nights covered.

Thank God for Beautiful British Columbia - the (best) part of Canada that basically screams summer. How could it not? Between the lakes, the ocean, and the mountains, what isn't there to do on your next date? Your options are limitless!

Vancouver is the obvious choice for things to do and I've included a plethora of date ideas within the city but there is so much more to BC than just the vibrant city with the tall glass buildings and seawall rollerbladers.

Venturing to the West, the East, the interior, the Island, and beyond will prove to have all kinds of fun and unique things to do with your favourite gal and with the weather (slowly) heating up you’re going to want to explore so much more than just dinner and a movie.

The Okanagan offers wine tastings, Victoria has SUPPING (curious? Keep reading…), and the Richmond Night Market is a can’t miss. Ugh! Is it summer yet?

Dating only gets better as the weather gets hotter. Sunshine means heat and heat means less clothing [enter smug smiley here…] Honestly though, don’t you just feel like everything's more fun under the sun? It rhymes afterall!

Summer means summer vacation, holiday, and free time! Take those 2 weeks in full, or if you’re in school...take those 3 months! Chill! Relax! Ride the good vibe train.

Need some inspo? I’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of 29 things to do with your best gal this summer.

One will make you feel like you're working on the beach!

If you work remotely, you're probably on the hunt for the best coffee shops to work from in Vancouver.

With so many jobs going remote or to a more flexible schedule, working from home has become a new reality for many — and as much as we all love rolling out of bed, missing traffic, and starting work in our PJs, even that can get old.

Empty shelves in grocery stores and huge lineups for gas are just some of the additional problems facing B.C. right now after its flooding disaster.

On Wednesday, B.C. Premier John Horgan announced that the province would be entering a state of emergency with immediate effect.

I happened to be driving through White Rock, B.C., when I discovered that it's home to Canada's Longest Pier. Of course, I had to make a stop to check it out.

Even though it was pretty cold — and pouring rain — I walked the long (very long) way to the end of the pier.
