What to do on the weekend?

Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome our all-time favourite days of the week: Saturday and Sunday aka the weekend! And this time Monday is joining the club of the free days! Yes, you read it right, we are having an extra-long weekend. In case you do not know yet how to spend those days, let me inspire you.

From Saturday until Monday, you can go to the BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum to celebrate the 8th anniversary of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Play ping pong, get a photo where you can hold a real 2010 Olympic Torch or do rock climbing, there are enough sports-related activities to do. The BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum is open from 10am until 5pm and all weekend, you can get 50% off admission.

During the whole weekend, it is also possible for you to show off your ice skating skills on the outdoor ice rink at Robson Square (corner of Robson Street and Howe) from 9am until 11pm. It is free to do so, and if you cannot bring your own skates, you can rent a pair there for around $5, cash payment only!

Feel more like visiting a museum? Then I can advise you to go to the Museum of Vancouver to discover Vancouver’s history. The admission is free on Monday, 12th February and the museum is open from 10am until 5pm.

Have a nice, relaxing and fun weekend, no matter what you do! Personally, I am looking forward to our weekend trip to Kelowna!

And do not forget, the INTERNeX office is closed from Friday, 9th until Monday, 12th February.
