7 Things To Do In Vancouver This Weekend

Don't let the last weekend of September pass you by. 🍁
7 Things To Do In Vancouver This Weekend September 25 To 27

A little rain never hurt anyone, right? Just because the weather might not be cooperating doesn't mean that you can't have a good time. We found a bunch of things to do in Vancouver this weekend both indoors and outdoors.

After all, you made the decision to live here knowing full well it's a coastal rainforest. Just put on your boots, accept that you're going to get a face full of rain, and be grateful that your biggest problem is the rain.

Did you know there's a winery hiding right in the middle of Vancouver? You can sip unique vinos and indulge in charcuterie and cheeses and feel like you're in Europe for an afternoon.

You'll also want to try doing your old classic standby fall weekend activities. For example, you can still catch VIFF films but you can do it from the cozy comfort of home if you want.

Plus, you can never have enough pumpkin patch photos. Buy a bunch to take home and you'll have instant decorations for your place to celebrate the new season.
