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.
