4. Visit The Spring Lights Illumination
As part of the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, Queen Elizabeth Park comes alive with a magical evening of music and festive lights. Multicolored lanterns will be hung to display the beauty of the cherry blossoms. The Cherry Blossom Festival was founded to commemorate the 800 cherry trees given by Japan to the City of Vancouver. It’s a spring time tradition for Easter in Vancouver!
5. Take A Trip On A Kayak
Being that this is Vancouver and our climate can be unpredictable – this one might be weather dependent! However, as kayaking is a favorite pastime for plenty of Vancouverites, there are places in which kayaking is a year round activity. Here is a list of the top 5 places to Kayak in Vancouver according to About Travel.
6. Book a Bed & Breakfast Package with Chateau Granville
If you have a free weekend in Vancouver, why not treat yourself to a night in first class accommodation, just minutes from many local attractions, public transport, shopping, entertainment & more.
