Best Time to Visit Vancouver
Vancouver is an excellent holiday destination throughout the year, with spring and winter being special favourites for tourists. In spring, expect comfortable, pleasant weather of about 11.0 °C and little rain. This is the perfect time to take a walk in Stanley Park admiring flowers in first bloom (especially the famous roses of the Rose Garden) and even go out whale watching. The whale season begins in April - you’ll be able to see migrating grey whales and even magnificent black-and-white orcas in this period.
In winter, Vancouver becomes a winter wonderland perfect for snow bunnies just dying to hit the powdery ski slopes. You’ll have your pick of excellent ski mountains easily accessible from the city, like the famous Whistler, Mount Seymour and Grouse Mountain.
Things to do in Vancouver
No visit to Vancouver is complete without a trip to Stanley Park, the city’s pride and joy. A 1000-acred spectacle of manicured nature, the Park is filled with everything you can imagine - from lakes, pools and pavilions to flower gardens, beaches and even an aquarium. After Stanley Park, the next must-see in Vancouver is the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. If you’ve always wanted to cross a rickety bridge suspended 70 metres over the roaring Capilano River, this is the perfect place to do it.
