Anonymous asked: Do you have any suggestions on fun and/or exciting activities or things a bunch of 16 to 17 years can do Downtown or around Vancouver at this time in the spring?
How long will you guys be in town? :O
The weather’s a little variable right now so I have to say to make the most of the great weather when it’s available, but make sure you have back-up plans, as well! Hmmm for 16-17 year olds, it’s a bit tricky since you aren’t legal yet so you can’t go and do the clubbing thing, and yet you want to have fun… It all depends on your definition of fun! Some folks like museums, other peeps like adrenaline rushes.
I’ve categorized activities depending on whether you can do them during nice weather (“Outside”), or bad weather (“Inside”).
- walk/jog/rollerblade/bike along the sea wall
- visit Stanley Park
- go to Playland (opens April 28th, just on the weekends; GO BUY YOUR TICKETS AT SAFEWAY OR 7-11, IT’S CHEAPER)
- visit Granville Island
- shop along Robson Street
- eat from a food cart
- visit the Richmond Night Market & Summer Night Market (if you’re still around in May)
- whale watching
- visit Jack Pool Plaza & see the 2010 Olympic Cauldron (& see the pixelated whale)
- wander around Gastown (& checkout the steam clock!)
- shop & eat on the Drive (swear, just bussing up/down Commercial drive is heavenly in terms of smell)
- visit Whistler (
I’m not sure how the snow conditions will be when you’re here, but if you’re here late enough in the spring,maybe try the Grouse Grind EDIT: WHISTLER IS GOOD RIGHT NOW. AND DESERTED. DO IT.)
- Capilano Suspension Bridge
- Lynn Canyon Park
- hit the beach! — Sunset beach, English Bay, Kits beach, Spanish Banks
- visit Metrotown (in Burnaby, I believe it’s the 2nd largest mall in western Canada)
- eat a JapaDog! (the restaurant on Robson is usually very crowded/busy so maybe going to the food cart outside on Burrard might be better)
- visit the Aquarium
- visit Science World
- visit the VAG (Vancouver Art Gallery, you sicko! … I kid, I kid)
- see the city from above at Vancouver Lookout
- take the ferry to Vancouver Island & visit Victoria (kind of sleepy, but very pretty)
- for different cultural experiences, visit Chinatown, Little India, Koreatown, etc.
- eat food from a different culture every day :)!
I took a lot of my suggestions from my old post about things to do in Vancouver so look there for restaurant suggestions! :D
