You're here! You did it, you survived a moth infestation, skies filled with smoke, a pandemic and so much more. Time to celebrate that we're still alive and recuperate. We've brought together all the things to do in Vancouver that we'll be up to this weekend because we need to just take a beat.

This week, we're looking at what's chill. We're not talking ice cream, either. We only want to do things that are going to bring a bit of peace to our lives.

You could do what I did, which was buy an entire DQ cake with a unicorn on it. Or, you could find a better way to treat yourself for surviving the week.

If this is all about things that will chill you out after a long week, then why is Canada's scariest corn maze on this list?
