What To Do in Vancouver This Fall

When Vancouver’s leaves start turning, autumn is right around the corner. Summer may be gone, but we’re not looking back. After all, Vancouver has enough fall activities to keep you busy with fun- filled days of action-packed events, apple cider, Halloween frights- even a chocolate festival. 

1.Take a hike

If the colours are changing, then the best way to see them is to get outside and immerse yourself in nature. Wherever you’re huffing and puffing up the Grouse Grind or leisure strolling through Stanley Park, the crisp air and sweeping views will keep your body active and provide only- in- autumn photos ops. 

2. Enjoy Colour at VanDusen Botanical Garden

Heathers, autumn crocus, hydrangeas and more bloom during the fall at VanDusen Botanical Garden, giving visitors the simple pleasure of soaking up picture- perfect fall landscapes. 

3. Visit The Art Gallery

It will get colder in the fall, but that’s exactly what art museums are made for! Vancouver Art Gallery’s 10,000-piece permanent include works from historical and contemporary Vancouver artists and other contemporary art leaders, making a trip here a welcome cultural change from sunbathing at Kits beach.

4. Visit Maplewood Farm

If we had to choose one time of the year to visit Maplewood Farm, we’d choose the fall. The origins of Labour Day can be traced back to April 15, 1872, when the Toronto Trades Assembly organized Canada’s most significant demonstration for worker’s rights. The aim of the demonstration was to release the 24 leaves of the Toronto Typographical Union who were imprisoned for striking to campaign for a nine- hours working day. At this time, trade unions were still illegal and striking was seen as a criminal conspiracy to disrupt trade. In spite of this, the Toronto Trades Assembly was already a significant organization and encouraged workers to form trade unions, mediated in disputes between employers and employees and singled the mistreatment of workers.

5. Take a Foodie Tour

Granville Island Public Market is a colorful feast for the senses. If you can imagine it, it’s there artisanal goods (cheese, pasta sausage, chocolate, bread), gleaming produce, fresh seafood and meats, coffees and teas,,, Also at the artfully converted cement factory site: galleries and theaters, cafes and Restaurants. 

6. Walk in The Park

Word- renowned Stanley Park is larger than New York’s Central Park, and its urbanforest of old-growth trees is the city’s cherished green heart. 

7. Just Eat!

If you visit in mid- October for Canadian Thanksgiving, look for great dinning deals and seasonal holiday tasting menus. If you like the idea of sampling grilled squid, Japanese crepes, hand- pulled ramen, bubble waffles, and hurricane potatoes with a little carnival- game madness, troll the 140 stalls at the buzzing Richmond Night Market. 

8. Go Flightseeing

Vancouver is about sea and sky, and seeing it from a bird’s eye view is something special. Try a seaplane tour with Harbour Air. Options range from a 20 - minute city panorama; to Alpine Lakes & Glaciers; to a whale watching day jaunt. 

9. Watch Ice Hockey Live

Catch a Canucks game! The season kicks off in early October and games are at Rogers Arena. 

10. Fall for Seasonal Doughnuts

Vancouver is home to two famed handmade doughnut shops, Lucky’s Doughnuts and Cartems Donuterie. While the debate rages on fro whose are the best, these local doughnuts are simply a must eat!
