Whether you've lived in Vancouver your whole life or you're just visiting, there are some things that you just absolutely have to see, eat and do while you're here - the fun, the new, the exciting, and the quintessentially Vancouver things to do.
If you're visiting, oh the things we have in store for you. From hiking the mountains in North Vancouver to chowing down on the best grub in this culinary city, you're definitely in for a ride.
If you're from Vancouver, we haven't left you out! Even for myself, someone who's grown up in the city, I know there is tons to explore still. Sometimes I think to myself that these places are so close, I can go any day! So I definitely get in that rut of planning fun things on the weekends, and then just end up getting take out from Sushi Town and staying in. But this is where the rut ends and the adventure starts.
