Autumn is here, and with every new season comes many new activities. And we all know that fall is the most basic of them all. Fall is short in Vancouver — sometimes it feels like it comes as quickly as it goes, so now is the time to take advantage of all the season has to offer.
So make the most of this season because it only comes once a year (and not for very long at that). From Halloween to Thanksgiving to pumpkin everything, fall is one of a kind.
We've brought you the ultimate Vancouver bucket list for you to experience fall to the fullest in the city. Happy autumn Vancouverites!
Fall's almost gone.
