Get Outside in Vancouver

It’s already spring here in Vancouver! If you want to get outside Vancouver, the Lower Mainland of BC is the best place. There you’re never far from spectacular beauty!

Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival 

Vancouver is profoundly multi-cultural. Many different peoples have come to call the city home, and you can see that influence everywhere. Check the food, art, people on the street… also in the traditions that have found root in the city, same as cherry trees.

No wonder why visiting the city during Spring is an absolute visual pleasure to experience: Numerous cherry trees trees shower the city in beautiful pink flowers. They’re absolutely stunning, and citizens of the city whose family backgrounds come from Pacific Asia recognized them immediately. In Japan, they’re called “sakura” (sah-koo-rah) and they’re the focus of many people’s memories of spring.

This is the reason why every year, Vancouver holds the Cherry Blossom Festival to celebrate the changing of the seasons! Take part in a bike tour of some of the city’s most breathtaking views, take a self-guided walking tour, and breathe in the spring air in one of the world’s most beautiful cities!

Stanley Park

Stanley Park is a beautiful symbol of how Vancouver is where city and nature meet! Rather than being planned by a park architect, Stanley Park is like an agreement between the natural forest, the coastline and the city of Vancouver, offering over 1000 hectares of incredible landscapes! The perfect place to get outside in Vancouver!

People love to walk or bike the seawall surrounding the park, or just explore the many lush walking trails throughout this beloved space! It’s a must-experience for anyone visiting the city. Explore the Park’s totem poles, tributes and memorials, and even its great blue heron population!

If you need a home away from home, book an extended stay suite at the Landis Hotel & Suites in downtown Vancouver and save over the course of your trip!
