What to do in Vancouver

  1. The beauty of Vancouver gardens

Spare some time and visit BanDusen Botanical Garden. You will be amazed by the shifting colors, tints and shapes of the leaves. Visiting the garden gives you the feeling of leisurely soaking into the crisp air and the immense festivity of nature. Don’t miss out to see the fiery red shades of the Japanese maples. Other places to visit in Vancouver are Alma VanDusen Meadow Garden or Stanley Park.

  1. The fringe benefits in Vancouver

The fall in Vancouver is the time of festivals when alternative theatres takeover the city with some 800 performances during 11 days in September. The audiences during the event are as spectacular as the performances. You can find varied performances to all tastes and ages. Everybody is welcome, which makes the Fringe festival venue one of the most desirable places to visit in Vancouver.

  1. Venue for football fans

Are you ready to let your emotions lose and see some action? The BC Lions play their home games throughout the fall. So, get out of your peaceful dorm and cheer for the home team! BC Lions play in downtown Vancouver, so enjoy the game and the atmosphere!

  1. Fright Nights in Vancouver

Are you wondering what you can do for grown-ups fun the coming Halloween? You can visit Fright Night at Playland, but beware: no children under age 13 allowed. The amusement park is full of bone-chilling exhibits, yet it could be an awesome way to spend a day with your teen son or nephew, grown-up niece, or an old friend of yours. Although being a bit scary at times, you will surely have fun walking with one another and guarding each other.

  1. Hiking in the clouds

Fall in Vancouver is one of the best times for hiking: if the colors are shifting in shades, tones and tints, then the best place to see them is from the bird view. You can choose from easy hiking trails to complicated routes. Stanley’s Park and Pacific Spirit Park have wonderful beaches, ocean and forest views, etc. Burnaby Mountain offers a fantastic view of Vancouver while Dog Mountain and Mount Seymour offer moderate trails. You can also opt for challenging trails if you are looking for some thrilling experience.

Think about apple cider, a chocolate festival, Halloween frights – and you will fall in love with autumn even if you don’t consider it a beautiful time of the year.
