Vancouver’s favourite outdoor ice rink is open! The skating rink at Robson Square will open daily, starting at 9am.

Skating is free if you bring your own skates, otherwise you can rent them easily at the Ice Rink. The will be hot drinks and snacks available to heat you up.

At the moment there is the North American Women´s Soccer Olympic Qualification in Vancouver. Don´t miss the chance to see one of the best Women Soccer Players in the World. There are two games a day and the tickets are really cheap, from 10 to 35$.

You definitely should visit the “Gibraltar Point Lighthouse“. It´s the oldest stone building in Toronto and one of the oldest Lighthouses in Canada. At night-time you have a beautiful view over Toronto. So it´s a cheap trip to a beautiful island!
