Staycations are all the rage right now, and what better place to have one than in Vancouver? There are so many fun activities to do outdoors in this city, from biking around Stanley Park to relaxing on the beach. Keep reading to discover our top picks for the best outdoor activities in Vancouver.
Bike Around Stanley Park
Visiting Stanley Park is a must while in the city. There is so much to do here, from relaxing on Third Beach to exploring the Vancouver Aquarium. That said, our favourite activity in the park has to be biking along the Seawall. There are multiple nearby bike rental shops, many of which are on Denman Street, such as Yes Cycle Bike Rental, making this a convenient and inexpensive activity to partake in.
Relax on the Beach
If you’re visiting Vancouver in the summertime, then you have to spend at least one day on the beach. Vancouver is littered with beaches, from the popular English Bay to trendy Kitsilano Beach. Jericho Beach is also a great spot if you’re looking to rent a kayak or a stand up paddle board. You can even visit Wreck Beach, Vancouver’s resident nude beach located beside the UBC campus, if you dare!
Hike Up Grouse Mountain
The Grouse Grind is like a rite of passage among the locals. Climbing to the top of Grouse Mountain is not for the faint-hearted, but we guarantee it’ll be worth it when you look out at that spectacular view. From the top, you can see everything - blue skies, the Pacific Ocean, and downtown Vancouver. There are multiple restaurants at the top (ranging from fine dining to a casual café) and the Skyride gondola to bring you back down to the bottom.
If you’re planning a staycation in Vancouver, then you’ll want to book a room at the Georgian Court Hotel. Not only are we within walking distance of the best outdoor activities in the city, but we have a special rate, available only to BC residents. Take advantage of this exclusive offer and enjoy the staycation of a lifetime.
