When the classic grey and rainy days we're famous for here in Vancouver are starting to get to you, you can always perk yourself up with a punch of the happiest colour in the world. There are a few hidden pink places to go in Vancouver that are great when you need a pick me up or a cool backdrop for a photo session. These pretty places tick every box and you're going to want to map them out one weekend when you could use a hit of colour in your life.
Vancouver actually turns into a city of pink in the spring when the cherry blossoms come. There are still a handful of amazing spots around the city that are pink year-round.
From murals and alleyways drenched in pink paint to the cutest cafes with a pink aesthetic, Vancouver is hiding a few pink spots all around the city.
There's so much pink to discover out there, more than what's just on this list, too.
There are a ton of cute cafes that serve beetroot lattes — the ultimate pink drink. Plus, the right bubble tea flavour can be the perfect shade of pink.
We might not have the same pastel-hued aesthetic as you'll find in Cuban-influenced Miami or in sunny California, but we have our own little corners where we can go to soak up every shade of pink.
