Sun is out and it is almost weekend! I hope you are excited as we are, since it is Canada Day weekend. That means there is a lot to do, especially since the weather forecast is looking great! Since there are a lot of places to go to on Canada day, it can be hard to choose.
If you have no clue yet, it is always easy and super fun to join our trip to Victoria on July 1st. We will meet at Tsawwassen ferry terminal at 8.30 am and from there we will take the ferry to Swartz Bay at 9 am. You can purchase your ferry ticket at the terminal. From Swartz Bay we will use public transport to get to Victoria. There will be free concerts starting at 12 pm at the inner harbour of Victoria and there is a lot to see in general. You can see all the details here.
When you decide to stay in Vancouver, a great place to go is Canada Place. The daytime festival on Saturday will be held from 11.00 am to 10.00 pm and on Sunday from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. Highlights are live performances, citizenship ceremony welcoming 150 new Canadians, the North Point Lounge serving beer and wine and on Sunday you can enjoy a nice pancake breakfast. But the best of it all must be the fireworks, which start 10.30 pm on Saturday.
If you rather escape the big crowds on Canada day, it can be nice to do some hikes this weekend. The famous Grouse Grind is open now and it will be a great challenge to complete during your stay here. You will find easier hikes in Deep Cove and Lynn Canyon, which will give you great scenery. Besides that the weekend is also there to relax a little bit, and therefore it could be nice to find some peace on one of the beaches of Vancouver. We just uploaded our new episode of the INTERNeX Explorer, where we show you Vancouver’s most famous beaches, so that might be worth checking out!
We wish you a happy (and for some of you long) weekend with a lot of sunshine, red and white shirts, and we hope to see you all in Victoria tomorrow!
