“Go-To” Rainy Day Activities In Vancouver

I decided to write this post as we had some working being done to our house. We had the Furnace Repair Vancouver crew in for a maintenance because things get cold again and a few other contractors were scattered around the house, so it was time to get out of there. Unfortunately, while Vancouver can be a beautiful city, the weather outside isn’t always pleasant. Thankfully, there are ways to have fun without stepping into a downpour.

If you want to avoid the bad weather while enjoying Vancouver, give these indoor attractions a try. You’re sure to have a great time.


Science World

If you’re a fan of science, you’ll have a lot of fun exploring this indoor museum. You can find all kinds of exhibits here, from displays to exhibits that are actually interactive.

The variety at this museum is very impressive. You can stay there for hours and not run out of things to do. It’s also a great option for families. Kids will love the exhibits they can play with!

The Vancouver Lookout

Do you want to admire Vancouver’s scenery in the rain? If so, the Lookout is the place you want to visit. This elevated tower provides beautiful panoramic views of the city. You’ll be able to get a good look at Vancouver while staying completely dry.

Sometimes, the weather can make this attraction even more appealing. Vancouver looks very different in the rain, and it’s nice to be able to see the city in that condition.

The Bloedel Conservatory

Are you itching for a nice garden stroll? At the Bloedel Conservatory, you can walk through gardens and stay dry. This indoor greenhouse is full of all kinds of beautiful plants. Because of the elevated temperatures, this is a great place to go when it’s chilly outside.

As you can see, the people in Vancouver have no shortage of options on rainy days. If your plans have been derailed by bad weather, you should take steps to look at some of your other options. Whether you are indoors or outdoors, Vancouver is a great place to be.

Take A Day Trip Around Vancouver

When planning a day trip around Vancouver, you are definitely not going to run out of things to do. Of course, when you have a full day at your disposal for a trip, you can venture to the outlying areas and neighbouring cities as well.

For now, let’s focus on the Vancouver area because there is plenty for you and your family or friends to enjoy. If you’ve never visited some of the top attractions in Vancouver, you’re in for a treat.

There is the Vancouver Lake Park, which sounds like quite the awesome place for a day trip, don’t you think? One reviewer talks about a summertime picnic adventure. Okay, is it just me, or does a summertime picnic and nap sound like a great all day trip to take? You can plan more than that just at this park alone, but relaxation can be found in just a picnic and a nice restful nap in the sun.


Of course, if you have brought kids along, you might not be able to take that nap. Still, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy your time there, and there are plenty of other opportunities for day trips in Vancouver. For example, you could visit Esther Short Park or the George C. Marshall House. One of the attractions I thought looked very interesting was the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.

I like seeing old buildings, and you might enjoy doing something different. Those parks sound cool, too, but you do have other options. There is the Waterfront Renaissance trail, Officers’ Row, the Vancouver National Historic Reserve, the Ulysses S. Grant House and so much more. They evidently have a pretty popular Farmer’s Market as well, which could be a simple pit stop during your day trip.

Mix and match attractions or spend all day at one of them. It’s all about what you want to do for a day in Vancouver.

How We Found Things To Do In Vancouver During The Summer

My husband and I were getting ready to travel to Vancouver for the summer. We were going to be there about 5 days and wanted to find things to do while we were there. We found several things to do and here is how we found them and what we did while we were there.

First, we went to Google and searched for things to do in Vancouver during the summer. Our search gave us alot of results with lists of things to do and how much they cost. Some of these things even allowed us to book online.

We found lots of free things to do online. We looked over the list and added it to our maybe list. There are so many things going on there all the time. Finding this information online gave us some things to check out while we were there that were free. This included outdoor movies and music festivals.

Next, we looked at TripAdvisor to find things to do while we were in the Vancouver area. This website is nice because it has reviews for things you can do. You can look over the reviews and prices on these things before you book them online. There were a few things that we knew we wanted to do while there and didn’t mind paying for. These things included going on a private sight seeing tour. This was a great way for us to learn more about the city while we were there. We also went on a whale watching boat. It was really nice too. I’m glad we got to experience both of these things.

There are many things to do in Vancouver during the summer. Look around and see all the options for free events too.
