How to make the most of your Vancouver summer

Summer in Vancouver goes fast. Before you know it, shorts, swimsuits and deck chairs are 50% off, Back to School ads are out, and the sun is down at 7 o’clock. So now is the time to make the most of summer with the kids. We’ve got ways to keep it simple, challenges for the kids (and you), local activities, summer getaways and more.

How to make the most of your Vancouver summer!

Keep it simple

The days are still long and light. If you’ve had a long day at work and the kids have been at camp, keep it simple. There’s plenty of sunshine after 5 pm, so head out to beach or playground with a picnic dinner (or take out) during the golden light. Snap some pics – this is the best light of the day and before you know it, it’s gone.
