Eran’s favourite spots around Vancouver
Westham Island Herb Farm
Lots of fun throughout the year – a Day at the Farm, a pumpkin patch – plus great homegrown produce, and farm animals to visit!
4690 Kirkland Rd, Delta
Centennial Beach Playground
Kid heaven – tons of accessible playground structures for kids of all ages, right on the beach!
12th Ave & Boundary Bay Rd, Delta
Mink Chocolates Café at Morgan Crossing
My son and I are chocolate addicts and this is the perfect mommy-son date spot! Super yummy treats and kid-friendly.
15775 Croydon Drive, Surrey
Ladner Village Market
One of the Lower Mainland’s biggest and best farmer’s markets, so much to look at and taste with vendors from all over!
48th Av, between Delta & Elliott Streets, Ladner – summer months only
Although we’ve since moved from Port Moody, this is still my favourite yoga studio, by far! Beautiful location, great teachers, lots of class options!
130 Brew St, Port Moody
Reifel Bird Sanctuary
A great place to wander and explore with a toddler. And feeding the ducks is always fun!
5191 Robertson Road, Delta
My favourite date night location with hubby. Absolutely LOVE Najib’s special and the halloumi. Intimate atemosphere and great staff.
207 W Hastings St, Vancouver
